Why Hire a Home Inspector?

Why Hire a ( RHI ) ( CMI ) Home Inspector?

Very simply, a house is the single largest investment most individuals will ever make. Currently purchasers are coming to understand the wisdom of a thorough home inspection prior to committing to the purchase. Home inspections by a Registered and Certified Master Home Inspector have proven to be a positive and educational experience for prospective home buyers. Home inspectors have their education, experience and reports verified by a board of their peers prior to becoming a Registered Home Inpsector. The Ontario Association of Home Inspectors ( OAHI ) is the only organization that scrutinizes the home inspectors qualifications and experience. Certified Master Inspectors must have 1000 CEUs, continuing education credits, a combination of home inspections and education, fewer than 42 are licensed in Ontario.

Whether you are having a home inspection  Hamilton, Burlington home inspection, Waterdown home inspection, home inspection Dundas or Ancaster home inspection, the purpose of  a home inspection service is to determine the condition of a property at the time of the purchase in order to disclose the following:

  • serious deficiencies
  • replacement and repair requirements
  • age and life expectancy of major components
  • maintenance and safety information

When you’re buying a new home in Burlington or Hamilton, home inspection services from a qualified home inspector represent only a small fraction of what you will be investing in your house. The peace of mind that comes from moving into a new home confident that it’s in good shape or already knowing what potential problems may await you, is the result of a good buyer’s home inspection. If your home inspector uncovers major problems before your deal closes, then you will have saved yourself a lot of worry and expense, perhaps for years to come.

At the foundation of a good home inspection service, provided by a qualified home inspector, is an independent review of the property. Home inspectors don’t have a stake in the outcome of the inspection, as they won’t make a profit based on whether a real estate deal closes or not.

Perhaps one of the most important elements of a home inspection service is to identify potential safety hazards. This is important information for a property owner to know whether you are buying or selling a home,  or simply wanting to maintain your property.

In short, your Registered and Certified Master Home Inspector can be considered your best, most impartial friend – someone who you can count on to tell you the truth.
