When buying a home in Paris Ontario one of the conditions I often suggest my buyer clients consider is a home inspection. Paris, Ontario and Brant County are known for many beautiful century homes – and with older homes could be some surprises.
Regardless of the age of a home, a home inspection is a great way to protect yourself from any unknown issues that may arise after closing. It is important to have a professional inspector look at the structure of the home, inside and out. They will check for structural integrity, plumbing, roofing, electrical, HVAC systems and more. Additionally, they will look for any signs of water damage or mold growth which could be costly to repair down the line. Once they have completed the inspection they will provide you with a detailed report outlining any areas of concern that need to be addressed before closing.
Having a home inspection done can help give you peace of mind when buying a new home in Paris Ontario. Knowing exactly what condition the house is in can help take away some of the stress associated with buying a home and ensure that you are making an informed decision on your purchase.
For those that do get a home inspection, the process is often seen as an intimidating one, however, it does not have to be. I recommend inspectors who treat my clients with respect and who do not make buyers feel as if they “should know”.
It is extremely important to me that my buyers feel empowered by the knowledge that the inspector shares.
Many people report feeling more confident in their purchase after getting a home inspection done, after all, it is the largest purchase most of us will ever make. Considering a move to Paris, Ontario? Give me a call, I’d love to help!
