A Real Story Of How A Home Inspection Saved Big Money for A Friend Of Mine
I recently met an old friend and we happen to be talking about the family and how he was doing in life. He had mentioned that him and his wife were looking at a particular home to purchase. I asked him: is a home inspection in the works? He stated “no, we aren’t getting one done. It’s a foreclosure, and besides, it’s a newer home and we are buying as is”
I almost choked on my coffee knowing that no home is perfect – not even the new builds.
I stated: “look I am not trying to tell you what to do, but as a friend and a licensed home inspector, for your family’s safety and financial well being, this home may have defects or safety issues you may not see. Regardless of what experience you have it is just as important to have a third party inspection to ensure that you get a professional and unbiased inspection of the property.”
My friend in the end chose to have an inspection completed, and called me soon afterward thanking me for the advice and told how they had found issues with the HVAC system, and roof.
To sum this story up, choosing to have an inspection performed, regardless if it were ATS Home Inspections or another reliable professional inspector, is the key to not only safety for your family, but to your financial well-being.
