Your future home should be in good condition and worth the money you’re paying for it. And the best way to ensure you’ve made a quality purchase is by having it professionally inspected. A home inspection will assess the exterior and interior condition and provide you with a comprehensive report about the lurking defects that could arise in the future. Moreover, it will help make an informed decision and give you the upper hand while negotiating for a better rate.

However, due to several myths running rampant in the real estate industry, most homebuyers take the inspection process lightly or skip it altogether. These falsehoods and irrelevant information may lead to additional expenses and dissuade you from receiving benefits from a home inspection. To help you steer clear of these misconceptions associated with a home inspection, Your Castle Home Inspections Inc. has debunked some of the most widely believed myths about home inspection.

Myth 1: You can either pass or fail a home inspection
Most potential home buyers believe that a home inspection is just a “pass” or “fail” grade system, which absolutely is not true. A home inspection provides a visual examination of the current condition of the house as you’re not experienced or knowledgeable in spotting defects. There’s no grading system, but rather a detailed observation and understanding of a property you intend to purchase.

Myth 2: Home inspectors are the same as code enforcers
Like most homebuyers, you may believe that inspectors are also required to know and report on any and all code violations. This is completely not true. Home Inspectors are not code inspectors nor code enforcers but are trained professionals who assist you to recognize and point out safety defects in and around the house so that you buy a safe property for you and your family.

Myth 3: Home inspectors will uncover every flaw of the property
It’s important to know what your inspector will and will not be inspecting of a property. Most homebuyers believe and expect home inspectors to report on every single corner within a house. The truth is, not all home inspectors are trained and qualified in all the same fields. The inspectors at Your Castle Home Inspections Inc. are not qualified mold inspectors and will not test or identify mold. Our inspectors are qualified to use infrared technology, which helps them identify other defects that other inspectors would never see. It’s essential to be aware of what is and is not inspected by the company you hire. You can email or call us Your Castle Home Inspections Inc. if you would like to know more information.
