The much anticipated Mountains to Sound Home Inspection blog is finally here! Since it’s our first post, let’s start with the basics. Why should you get a home inspection anyway? I’m sure there are better things you can do with $400 dollars and a couple of hours of your time. Maybe you think you’ll be able to see any issues yourself. Well, here are a few things to think about:
1. You don’t want to buy a Money Pit. Or maybe you do and are looking for a sweet deal. Either way, there may be hidden defects in the house that only a trained eye may see, such as problems with the roof or structural issues found in the crawlspace or attic.
2. You want to make sure the home you buy is safe. This is where you family will sleep and you kids will play. There could be dangerous electrical problems or mold issues. Even something as simple as smoke and CO detector placement can be life saving. Someone with the right qualifications should take a look.
3. You’ll learn how to Maintain you house. At Mountains to Sound Home Inspection we don’t only identify the major defects (if any) of the home, but also the minor things. If these items are repaired properly it will preserve the home for lasting longevity and give you peace of mind for years to come.
The bottom line is, you are looking out for your best interest. And it is in your best interest to hire a qualified (and licensed) home inspector to inspect your home. If it happens to be Mountains to Sound Home Inspection, you’ll be glad you did.
