Do you Really Need A Home Inspection?

 

Buying a home without getting an inspection is not a good idea. Think about how much you’re spending on the purchase of your home. Now think about the extra few hundred dollars it will take to get a thorough home inspection done. It’s worth the extra money. 

Here is Mike Holmes’ article on WHY YOU NEED A HOME INSPECTION.

 

How long do Mike Holmes Inspections take?

 

A typical home inspection of an average single-family home size 1800 – 3500 sq. ft. will take approx. 2.5-3 hours. During this time, your local home inspector can thoroughly inspect your home, provide you with a detailed home inspection report and answer any questions you may have.

Home Inspector using thermal imaging
The thermal imaging camera detects temperature differences and patterns on a wall, a wet area and the surrounding dry areas can indicate the presence of moisture that would not be visible during a home inspection without a thermal imaging camera. Findings like these could be an indication of previous water issues or a slow leak that should be further investigated.
