You’ve found a home and you’re ready to make an offer. But what about an inspection? Yes, you can be your own home inspector, but it’s probably not a good idea. Platinum Property Inspections shares why it’s important to have a professional handle the property inspection before you buy your Prescott home.
There are two important reasons for hiring a professional home inspector:
- The first reason is experience. Some of the biggest defects are not obvious, but leave subtle signs that professional inspectors recognize. Thousands of home inspections mean inspectors can recognize visual data of your potential home faster and more efficiently than a layperson. They see things. They know what to look for. And they may have a mental catalog of problems particular to individual neighborhoods.
- The second reason is equally important. Professional property inspectors are not personally invested. They are not excited by the house, ready to move, packed or feeling the pressure to close a deal. Could you, the homeowner, who might already be picturing patio chairs in the backyard on a cool summer evening, stay emotionally detached? Your property inspector is neutral, and that’s a big advantage. Their only interest is in providing you with a comprehensive and thorough report to guide you in your decision-making.
Unless you can competently assess all the tell-tale signs of the invisible aspects of a house, don’t risk your money, time, energy and joy doing an inspection yourself or trusting it to an amateur.
Moving into a new home should be exciting. Don’t let unrevealed defects leave you weeping with regret. For a professional home inspection in Prescott, call Platinum Property Inspections at 928-713-0889.
