A home inspection helps to check on the condition of the home and identify potential problems. So, when considering a home to buy, whether it be a first or a tenth property, thoroughly inspecting it can help detect hidden issues that could arise in the future. Keeping this in mind, have a professional home inspection done so that you are aware of flaws in the house. This report will also give you the upper hand while negotiating with the seller. 

However, like some homebuyers, you may skip on a home inspection due to the falsehoods and misconceptions associated with this service. To ensure you benefit from a professional home inspection and steer clear of any misconceptions, Inspection Wizards has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about home inspection.

Myth 1: Home inspectors can find every problem in a home
There are chances that the home inspector might not catch every problem. They will miss things covered by the seller’s personal property and won’t be able to see under carpets and through walls, but they will ensure that you receive the most thorough inspection possible.

Myth 2: Home condition will remain the same after a home inspection
People don’t realize that everything changes, including the condition of the home as well as the equipment inside of it. A furnace today is not the same furnace six months from now; with mechanical equipment, failures can happen at any time, even if it is new. Humidity, storms, insects, and decay are all constantly working on the homes we build.

Myth 3: I don’t need to inform the home inspector for any changes
In case of an issue arising after a home inspection, most customers tend to let it slip for a while before informing the home inspector. One the other hand, some clients hire another professional to come to fix a problem before they let the inspector know there was a problem. These faults can invalidate the home inspection warranty!
