Do you remember the last time your house was inspected? If you cannot recall the last time, you are not alone. Most homeowners would say that the last time their home was inspected was when they bought it. For some, that may be quite a few years ago. However, were you aware that ideally, you should have your home inspected every year? Why do we say that?
When you think about it, an annual home inspection makes sense. After all, it is recommended that we have our physical health checked at least once a year. We also inspect our cars every year. Why? To ensure everything is functioning the way it should. Our homes are no different. It is important to check that the home is running well and that no issues are developing that could turn into major problems with time. An added benefit is that you can fix those small issues before they turn into big, expensive ones.
Perhaps you’re thinking that an annual home inspection is just another expense that you can’t afford. Of course, you do not want to think about spending your hard-earned money on something that is not a priority, but an annual home inspection may cost less than you imagine, and it may end up saving you money in the long run. So, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions regarding annual home inspections or any other inspection-related inquiry.
