If you’ve been following our previous blog posts, then you already know that we’ve been talking about our licensed home inspector and why it is necessary to always have one when purchasing a home. Buying a home is more than just a place where you will make memories for years to come, it is the place where you will stay safe from the elements, and it is an investment that could last a lifetime.

Many people like to cut costs wherever they can, and one of these extra costs they always seem to cut first is a licensed home inspector. Getting your home inspected is an important piece to any home buying puzzle and here’s why:

  1. Protection- If the home you are under contract with has something wrong with it, like a cracked foundation, defective plumbing or inadequate electrical wiring, you need to be aware of it, so you can consider your options. Many of these problems will have to be fixed in order to sell the home to you, or you could possibly get out of the contract because the home is not in safe conditions.
  2. You will know what kind of shape the home you are buying is in- If you are looking to buy a home that is move-in-ready, only to find out it will need much more work than you are willing to put into it, then you will be happy to realize that investing in a Fort Collins home inspection was worth it.

We realize that not every home will seem as though you need a licensed home inspector, but it is better to have one. You never know what we could find lurking in the walls of your home, so it’s better to be safe than sorry! Schedule an inspection with us online now!
