Who Needs a Home Inspection?

Anyone buying or selling a home.

Whether you are selling a home or buying a new or pre-owned home, a home inspection is the best advantage you have in today’s residential housing market! Here’s why:



Typically, people think of a home inspection as a buyer safety net. Not so! A pre-listing home inspection gives YOU the selling advantage:

  • Identify any problems with your home before listing to save money and create less stress at closing
  • Allows you to shop your estimates for the best quality and price
  • Make the repairs on your own time schedule
  • Get the highest price in the shortest time with your home in top condition at listing
  • Benefit by offering some problems “as is” in the contract
  • No closing delays due to repair problems
  • Peace of mind when buyer requires an inspection contingency clause in the contract
  • Less chance of a sale falling through, since many a buyer gets cold feet when a problem is discovered — even though repaired, they wonder “What else is wrong with the home?”
Even more than for a seller, a professional home inspection is essential for a buyer, regardless if the home is pre-owned or just newly built:

  • Reduce your risk of buying a home with hidden, major repair problems that is a “money pit”
  • Peace of mind with no unpleasant surprises after the sale
  • Even newly built homes may have defects — problems missed during construction, even with the best builders
  • Can require all repairs be done BEFORE you close on the new or pre-owned home
  • You may be able to negotiate a lower purchase price, if you are willing to make the repairs and close “as is”
  • Discover environmental issues, such as dangerous radon gas, toxic mold and costly permitting issues
  • A pre-purchase home inspection means less stress in buying a home, the process is easier, and you can be assured of a problem-free home

South Florida Home Inspection Association are professionally trained and qualified home inspectors. Members of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI), we take pride in the quality of our inspections, adhering to NACHI’s high standards of practice and code of ethics.

We bring our experience to bear with a four-point home inspection that includes (but is not limited to) inspecting the roof; electrical system; the heat, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC); and plumbing. With insurance companies in Florida requiring homeowners to meet higher, seasonal weather standards, our four-point inspections may reduce a buyer’s home insurance premiums.
