When making such an important decision, sometimes, even the most experienced buyer needs help. This is where a Kelowna home inspector comes in. A close examination made by an inspector can save you a lot of trouble and give you the much-needed peace of mind that comes with the reassurance you’re making the right choice.
Having a prospective purchase inspected by a specialist is useful both on short and long term. On the short term, you will know if the house has negative aspects that may need some investments. This will come in handy when negotiating the price. On the long term, the inspector will tell you if there are any repairs or replacements that need to be made and estimate the cost. Also, you will receive maintenance advice, very useful to maintain the property in good shape.
A pre-purchase home inspection means that the inspector will visually check all the accessible places of the property and report the positive and negative aspects they find. This examination will guide you through the decision-making process and it includes examining the walls, foundation and structure, roof inspection, attic and crawlspace, the electrical, heating, cooling and ventilation systems, insulation, plumbing, interior and exterior finishes. It does not include the exact cost for repairs and it doesn’t provide guarantees, though.
The inspection is followed-up by a walk-through with the client during which the inspector highlights the positive and negative aspects of the property and creates final report that includes comprehensive information, very useful before deciding to make an offer. The details regard a list of deficiencies that require repair or replacement, recommendations for short term and long term upgrades, repairs or replacement, a cost estimate, a narrative description of the current condition and an estimated remaining useful life of major components.
Buying a house is one of the most important purchases during one’s lifetime. So, when it comes to such a big investment, you have to take care of every detail. There are times when you can’t do it alone.
