Before you buy a new home, you should always have the property inspected to make sure that you are aware of any hidden problems. When it comes to home inspections, we at Towne & Country Property Inspections recommend that you always choose an inspector who has been trained and certified. In this article, we’ll go over why certified home inspections are preferable to those by uncertified inspectors.
- Greater Knowledge. One reason to get a certified home inspection is that the inspectors have more training, and greater knowledge of a wide variety of home structures and systems. You want an inspector who is able to recognize any issue, no matter how small, and that ability comes from structured study and training.
- More Experience. Another reason to opt for certified home inspections rather than an inspection from someone unlicensed is that the certified inspector most likely has more experience in the industry. Our inspectors have been working in this field for many years, and they have finely honed their ability to assess the condition of homes. You can count on our team members to give you the accurate information you need to make the right choice about your real estate purchases.
- Financing Requirements. A third reason to always go with certified home inspections is that many lenders and financial institutions require them. In other words, if you need a loan to finance this purchase, you will need to get a certified inspection in order to meet the bank’s standards and secure that money.
