Because your home is likely the largest purchase you may ever make, doesn't it make sense to have a thorough home inspection performed to identify any hidden problems?
Buyers fall in love with a home for all kinds of reasons: its location, size, floor plan, kitchen, etc. An inspection may uncover problems that may prevent you from buying the house or costing thousands in repairs down the road.
The results from a home inspection may be an opportunity to ask a seller for repairs, negotiate a better deal, or ask them to contribute more toward closing costs.
A home inspection can reveal if a house has rooms, garages, or additions completed without proper permits. If work was completed in a house without a permit or did not follow building codes, it impacts usability, taxes, insurance, and property value.
Insurance companies want to avoid future potential losses and liabilities and may not insure a home if a certified home inspection has not been completed. Plus, in Florida having the inspector do a 4-point and wind mitigation inspection will typically reduce the cost of your home insurance.
