Why you should get a Home Inspection

Purchasing a house is one of the largest purchases that most people will ever make. It is
important to make the decision to purchase the right house. Purchasing the wrong house can
cause a lot of expense.

When purchasing a house, a home inspection is an important part of the process. When your
Realtor writes the offer to purchase the house it should include a condition of inspection. This
condition allows you to have the house inspected. If you are not satisfied with the condition of
the house you do not have to buy it. You will be able to move on and find a house that is in
better condition.

It is important to choose a home inspector who is a professional and carries Errors and
Omissions Insurance. The inspector you choose should be a member of the Ontario Association
of Home Inspectors. Professional home inspectors are well educated. They will go through the
house with you step-by-step analyzing the most important systems of the house including:

● Electrical
● Plumbing
● Heating
● Foundation
● Structure
● Roofing
● Insulation

After analyzing each part of the house they will give you a report on the current condition of the
house. This allows you to make an educated decision on whether or not the house you are
planning to buy is in good enough condition to proceed with buying.
