Why Do I Need a Home Inspection?
A home is the biggest purchase most people will make in their lives. SIS understands how important it is to know the condition of a property you're considering and if there are any issues that would prevent you from wanting to make a purchase. A thorough inspection can help make sure you don't make an investment you regret later or assure a home buyer that a property is in good condition and may only need minor repairs. Furthermore, an inspection can also benefit a home buyer who may use this information in their negotiation of the price of a home.
