In the age of Pinterest and DIY enthusiasts, we get many people who ask, “Why do I need a home inspection? Can’t I see the condition of the property for myself?”
While we understand the desire to save a few bucks in the home-buying process, our team at TLC Home Inspections, PLLC wants to give you a few reasons why you should never skip the home inspection.
1. Protect your investment.
If you’re about to buy a house, you’re on the verge of placing quite a bit of financial faith into your new home. By getting a home inspection, you are taking an extra step in making sure your investment is a wise one. You don’t want to purchase a property, only to discover costly issues.
2. Anticipate problems.
Your new home may not have major issues, but it’s always best to have a second set of eyes to look for things that may become issues in the next three to five years. Our inspectors can help you gauge how much longer that roof or that HVAC system might last. That way, you can factor that into your future financial plans instead of being caught off guard.
3. Gain an edge for negotiations.
Your home inspection report can become leverage during second-round negotiations. Without the report, you may not have leverage for asking the sellers to fix issues or to adjust the purchase price. That home inspection becomes essential to make sure you have all the power you can during the purchasing process.
At TLC Home Inspections, we make sure our home inspections go above and beyond your expectations. Even if you’re the best handyman in town, we can partner with you to make sure that your new home purchase is a wise one. We serve the clients in and around the Austin, TX, area.
