Ace Home Inspections has been in the home inspection business for over 13 years. In that time, we’ve learned that home inspections are the subject of much confusion. In fact, people have so many misconceptions about home inspections that we decided to offer this consumer education message so when you select a home inspection company, you can make an informed, intelligent decision.
Misconception #1: You should wait as long as possible before getting your home inspection.
No. Waiting until the last minute to get your home inspection leaves you in position of not having the information that you need to make an informed decision. Also, your contract will likely have specific dates in it that if you don’t respond in a timely manner, then you will lose the opportunity to cancel your contract on a house and still receive your earnest money back.
One of the problems is that if the home inspection turns up something significant, then a specialist is generally required to help you understand the depth of the problem.
You need to schedule the inspection as quickly as possible and have it done as soon as possible.
Misconception # 2
You don’t need a home inspection if you are getting a home warranty.
