A home is one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. In most cases, it’s also the place where you’ll spend most of your time. It’s important to you that the home be safe, comfortable and free from major defects. Once you find a home that has the right space for you, the next step is to ensure that the structure and the systems that make the home functional are in proper working order. While the seller’s disclosure documents will tell you many things, they may not offer as much information as you’d think. Sellers may not have the training necessary to spot certain defects, even in a home they’ve lived in for years. You simply can’t overstate the value of a professionally trained, experienced home inspector in helping you make this important decision.
