You’re ready to take that next step in homeownership. You may be looking to sell your current home and upgrade to a larger one, or you may be looking to buy your very first home. Buying or selling a home is a process that can be overwhelming. There are many occasions where a home inspection can make this process a bit more straightforward. If you find yourself in these circumstances, learn more about how the house inspectors at Bryan & Bryan Inspections can help.

When Should I Hire a Home Inspector?

Selling a Home

A certified home inspection can make all the difference between a short, simple real estate transaction and a complicated, lengthy house sale. You may have taken steps to ensure that your home is in prime condition, but there could be several invisible issues lurking just beneath the surface, such as:

  • Termites or other pests
  • Mold in the walls or floors of your home 
  • Unknown septic problems

Scheduling a home inspection before you place your home on the market allows you to get ahead of any outstanding issues. This enables you to have repairs completed or problems eradicated, ensuring a smooth real estate sale for both you and the future homeowner.

Buying a Home

Are you purchasing an older home? Before you make an offer, schedule a house inspection in order to ensure that your future home has a rock-solid foundation. It’s one thing to paint walls, add new cabinetry, or install simple plumbing. Extensive renovations, like tearing down walls due to mold issues or repairing the foundation due to hidden water damage, will make for a more expensive and complex home renovation than intended.

Checking on Repairs

If you’ve purchased a brand new home, your new property most likely included a home warranty. These warranties will cover the cost of specific repairs that need to be made within the first year of homeownership. Once repairs are made, a house inspector can evaluate the property to make sure all repairs were completed as written within the home warranty contract.
