Professional Home Inspections in Barrie
Buying or Selling a home is one of the biggest decisions your family will make. We will ensure that you fully understand the actual Condition of the home before you Buy. The main purpose of a home inspection is to give you the information needed to make an informed decision on the purchase. Most home inspectors focus on the major defects that will cost the buyer a lot of money above the purchase price to repair.
A Professional Home Inspector is more likely to see potential issues, but they’re limited to inspecting the accessible areas, so there may nevertheless be latent defects despite their thoroughness and competence. Hiring a certified inspector protects the buyer from certain kinds of professional wrongdoing. For example, if the inspector fails to examine the attic even though it was accessible and the buyer later finds out that it’s contaminated, the buyer can contest the inspection report and take action against the inspector who missed a visible and accessible defect.
Knowing all the deficiencies that can be found in your home allows you the opportunity to have them repaired prior to selling. Many items noted in the typical Home Inspection are minor and usually just day to day maintenance issues that are resolved fairly easily. This gives you “Peace of Mind” knowing that your Buyer will not be coming back after their Home Inspection with a long list of minor repairs.
