Busted! Don’t Believe These Home Inspection Myths!

Are you in the process of buying a home and considering a home inspection? Home inspections are essential for getting an unbiased and comprehensive assessment of a home’s condition. However, there is a lot of misinformation out there about home inspections.

To help you steer clear of these misconceptions, Vancouver Island Hughes Home Inspection Services has debunked some of the most widely believed myths about home inspections.

Myth 1: The House looks OK! I don’t need a home inspection
The property may look fairly good from its appearance, but many aspects need to be considered before you make the final decision. A Certified Professional Home Inspector will watch out for any issues that may prove to be costly or troublesome for the homeowner in the near future.

Myth 2: Home inspections cost too much
Many people assume that a home inspection is expensive, but given the risk involved in buying a house where you discover a serious problem, later on, the cost of a home inspection is minimal. The typical cost of a professional home inspection is less than 1/10 of 1% of the cost of a home. This is why it is best to hire a Certified Professional Home Inspector.

Myth 3: My friend/parent can inspect it for me
Yes, anyone can look at the home for you, but they cannot match the expertise a Certified Professional Home Inspector holds.
