Whether you’re putting an offer in on your dream home, or considering listing your house on the market, there are several costs to consider when making a real estate move – one being the ever-important inspection.
Serving Orangeville and the surrounding area, Pillar to Post Home Inspectors is the first choice for homebuyers and sellers seeking professional, accurate and comprehensive home inspections.
Since 1995, we’ve become the most reputable inspection company in the region by winning our clients’ confidence through clear, honest and transparent communication of a home’s condition.
And while some consider the home inspection an unnecessary cost and formality to seal the deal on the sale, there are many benefits to having a home inspected.
A house is likely the biggest purchase you’ll make. While it’s easy to get swept up by the excitement of starting a new life in a home, booking an inspection before you sign the dotted line is crucial to making a sound investment in your future.
At Pillar to Post, our home inspections include the examination of up to 1,600 items. We visually inspect the home’s structure and foundation, electrical and plumbing systems, roof, basement, gutters, floors, ceilings, porches, and more.
We also examine the working order of HVAC systems, plumbing fixtures, built-in appliances windows and doors. A home inspection may be an unwanted upfront expense. However, skipping it could end up costing you dearly should you need to repair or remediate a home.
Likewise, a home inspection can save you money in the long run. Not only does it serve as a bargaining chip to negotiate a lesser price, but it can also prompt a seller to make pre-transaction repairs, and save you on homeowner insurance.
For home sellers
A pre-inspection is also beneficial before listing a home. Doing so is a gesture that shows buyers there’s nothing to hide, giving them peace of mind in their purchase.
An inspection also highlights your home’s assets, while giving you an opportunity to repair any damages. A problem-free home is likely to sell more quickly, and allows sellers to disclose known issues. This can curb lowball offers, cancelled contracts, and even lawsuits.
