For Homeowners

You’ve bought a house before, and now you’re looking to purchase your second — or even third — home. Do you need a home inspection? Yes!

Why Do You Need a Home Inspection?

There are several reasons why you need a home inspection the second (or third) time around. You may know your existing home from top to bottom, but how well do you know what’s in your new home? Have you examined the roof close up? Do you know how old the appliances are, or how well the plumbing and electrical systems are working? Have the sellers allowed you to inspect every inch of the property? Have you had the opportunity to do so?

You need a professional home inspector to arrange for and conduct a thorough examination of the home from top to bottom, an inspector who understands construction, plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems — and will climb to the roof and through the crawl space, check out all the switches, run the appliances, and more.

Even if you get the chance to inspect the home and its operating systems, unless you’re in a construction trade or you are a home inspector yourself, it is always helpful to have a second set of eyes. A professional inspector follows standards of practice when it comes to examining and operating the components and systems of a home. You don’t want to miss any information before the purchase; it’s vital that you find out everything you can about your new home before closing.
