why get a Home inspection?
When you're looking at spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a place you may live in for years, you don't want to gamble. You don't want to be fooled by a place that initially looks like your dream home, but which might burden you with repair bills thousands of dollars higher than you ever imagined or expected. It happens all the time.
It doesn't have to be this way.
The bottom line is this: if you're buying or selling a home, whether it's a brand-new bungalow or a stately century mansion, you want a professional home inspection carried out by a reputable, qualified, objective and insured practitioner -- like the ones who work for Red Squirrel. They can provide you with the knowledge and peace of mind you want and need before you or anyone else signs on the proverbial dotted line.
NOTE: A home inspector can only report on the parts of a house that are visible. Home inspectors can't dismantle anything or report on the exact state of the electrical wiring inside the walls or the plumbing under the floor. They can't definitively predict what may or may not happen to the various parts of your house in the future. They can only comment on things they can see in the here and now.
If you're a buyer, you want a home inspection so you can be confident that the investment you're making -- the biggest one that most people ever make -- is a sound one. You want to know the roof doesn't leak and the foundation is crack-free. You want to know that the home's plumbing, electrical and heating systems are properly installed. And if there are problems in these or other areas, you want a reasonable idea of how much they might cost to fix so that if you decide to purchase the home, you can know which repairs to tackle first.
Red Squirrel's home inspectors will provide you with all that information so you can make an informed purchasing decision. That's our goal in a nutshell. To do that, they visit your potential home for two to three hours and examine it inside and out to determine what looks good and what you might need to keep an eye on in the future. After the inspection is finished, they'll send you a detailed report that details everything they found, in words and pictures. You can use this report to help confirm your buying decision or as a price-negotiation tool with the seller.
If you're selling a home, the sale can proceed much more smoothly if you can assure prospective buyers that they're getting a product in good working order. If the place needs work, you can let the buyer know up front what needs to be done. They will appreciate your transparency.
