How a Home Inspection Helps You

Whether you’re considering buying a particular home, selling your current  property or both; a home inspection can help.

A home inspection is an inspection by a qualified professional who takes a  close look at every aspect of a home; structure, wiring, plumbing, and  more, it identifies issues you may not have noticed yourself.

For example, a home inspection can reveal that a furnace will need to be replaced soon, or that there is a water leak into the basement that needs to be fixed.

You’ll definitely want to get a professional home inspection before you buy a particular property. That’s why most offers to purchase a home are  conditional upon passing a home inspection. (The last thing you want is to buy your dream home only to discover that the wiring needs to be updated!)

You may also want to get a home inspection on your own home before you list it for sale. A certificate from a qualified professional that states that your  home passed inspection will make your property more attractive to buyers.

Many reputable home inspectors are members of a professional industry association in Canada:

• Canada Association of Home & Property Inspectors – http://www.cahpi.ca
• Professional Home and Property Inspectors of Canada – http://www.phpic.ca
• National Home Inspectors Certification Council – http://www.nationalhomeinspector.org

It’s important to note that certification or licensing is not a requirement in many jurisdictions. So select a home inspector carefully. We have relationships with many home inspectors and can recommend one. Please contact us with any questions.
