Can I inspect the home myself ?
We very strongly advise against attempting to perform the property inspection yourself, for a number of reasons. Even if you do have a lot of experience with the systems of a home, it is still advised to hire a professional home inspector.
- It's far too easy to become emotionally attached to a home. It's very important to have an objective party perform the inspection to provide a professional, unbiased assessment.
- A professional home inspector has been trained to look for specific issues, and is familiar with a wide variety of situations.
- A good home inspector knows the difference between major and minor issues, and which minor issues can lead to major problems down the road.
