Why you should get a Home Inspection
If you are considering buying a previously owned or even a new home, selling your current home or planning to just hunker down and fix up the one you have, a professional home inspection by Home Inspection - Los Angeles will make things a lot easier.
Knowing the true condition of the property is paramount in making informed decisions.
Why should you chose to have a Home Inspection? Good Question! Consider how much you are paying these days to purchase a home in the Los Angeles area. It is likely that it is one of the most expensive purchases you ever make. Yes, a proper home inspection costs money, usually $300 or more. When you add that to all the other fees that rack up when purchasing a home, it can be daunting. And what if you DON'T buy this house? Then you get to start all over. I understand your problem.
Take a minute to step back and really look at the financial considerations
and eliminate the emotional aspect.
Don't be penny wise and pound foolish.
As a percentage of the overall cost, a home inspection is a tiny fraction.
Consider the down side of NOT having one done. Not finding out that a major system, that appears to be working now, is near the end of it's life and will cost many thousands of dollars to repair or replace is not a good thing. The home inspection just brought that fault to your attention so you can budget for it or even use it to negotiate a better price. The Home Inspection may have just saved you that money so it was essentially free.
"The seller is required to disclose anything that is wrong".
Maybe! They are only required to disclose the things they KNOW ABOUT and many home owners are not aware that there is a problem or suffer from "deterioration creep", a phenomena that occurs as something gradually gets worse but you just compensate for it. "It's always been that way, we are used to it so didn't think to disclose it." Others may not be totally honest or may even attempt to actually hide a known defect. I have discovered just such a thing in the past.
Not all sellers are totally honest about their disclosures, get over it! It happens.
Your only defense is GET YOUR OWN HOME INSPECTION! As my tag line says "No Mystery, Find Out For Sure".
"It's a brand new house, what could be wrong?"
Oh Boy! Let me count the ways! Did you know that many local code enforcement inspectors only spend about 15 minutes at most checking the house? Compare that against a typical, thorough, 2-3 hour or more inspection by a qualified Home Inspection Expert. If there is a problem, it's more likely that it will be found. Finding it can save you many thousands of dollars and many hours of anguish and stress, fighting with the builder to get it fixed after the deal is done and they have your money.
My (insert name - brother, father, friend) works in construction / used to work in construction / is a contractor / has owned homes for years etc, etc.
That's nice! A good resource to have but.....Are they a trained and experienced Home Inspector that has done hundreds, even thousands of Home Inspections? Do they know what is important? Do they know what to look at and where to look for the hidden problems that are often found? Probably not. I speak from experience here. I've had that "helpful" friend or relative pointing out the most inconsequential things and wanting them added to the report. They need to justify being there so they have to say something!
When it comes time to negotiate, does doing your own DIY Home Inspection carry as much weight as one done by a Professional Home Inspector that has done this every day for years ?
Not really, it will more likely be viewed as an attempt to "grind" the seller for a lower price. The Independent Professional Home Inspector has no "ax to grind" so their professional evaluation is valid and is more credible.
