Our team at Cornerstone Inspections has extensive experience in the home inspection industry, and you can count on us to provide the accurate reports you need to make informed decisions about whether to buy a new home and about how to care for your current one. Below, we’ll go over a few ways in which home inspections benefit you in order to give you a better idea of why you need our services.
- They Let You Avoid Bad Investments – The first benefit of home inspections is the way they allow you to avoid making unwise investments. If you are thinking about buying a new home, but the inspection results reveal significant structural problems, you can then back out of the transaction in light of this new information.
- They Let You Plan Maintenance and Repairs – Home inspections also provide valuable information about the condition of various parts of your home (or the home you are looking to buy). Our team will gather information about the age and condition of key systems, such as the roof, foundation, electrical wiring, plumbing, and more, and you can then use this data to prepare for future maintenance and repairs. For example, if the inspection reveals a shingle roof is ten years old, you can use that information to plan when it is likely to need replacement.
- They Let You Get Your Home Ready to Go to Market – Home inspections also benefit sellers. If you are planning to sell your home, we encourage you to get it inspected first in order to identify problems. If your inspection reveals major flaws, you can get those issues repaired before listing your home, so you can command a higher price for the property.
