Have A Home Inspection And Eliminate Nasty Surprises!


Blog by Jean Richer - Salesperson | May 7th, 2018




A home inspection is a visual inspection of your home from the roof to the rafters. The inspector can evaluate your home by checking for visual defects and functional problems, they cannot disassemble any electrical appliances (like air conditioners, stoves or furnaces) and since they’re not Super Heros with x-ray vision they can’t see behind walls or paneling or under your slab. The inspector also can’t lift carpeting or major pieces of furniture. Hiring an impartial Ottawa building or home inspector to do an inspection before you start showing your home is a worthwhile investment. It will allow you to become more knowledgeable about your home and property; give you the confidence to negotiate the sale in good faith; provide forewarning of what the buyer's inspector might uncover and give you the opportunity to alter or repair small imperfections before they become major catastrophes.
