If you are buying a house in Prince Albert you will need a Home Inspection. This will probably be the single largest investment of your life and likely the place where the majority of your wealth will be tied up, it would be financially irresponsible to not do your due diligence.
Why have a home inspection
The obvious reason is to avoid purchasing a home that requires more money on repairs than your budget. With the Prince Albert and most of Saskatchewan market being hot at the time of writing it become more essential to have a Home Inspection. Ideally the Home Inspection will allow you to enter a purchase agreement with your eyes open and allow you to pass on a property you couldn't afford.
After you have purchased your house that inspection report can become a road map. A qualified Home inspector should ask that you be present during the inspection or at least for the last hour so that they can discuss severity of the issues they find, ( guess what, every house has some kind of issue, Yes even new ones), and help you prioritize the repairs over the first few years of ownership.
Limitations Of a home Inspection.
We have all watched the home shows on the cable networks and know that home inspection cant identify everything and Prince Albert is no different.
A qualified inspector can refer you to other professionals such as Structural Engineers who can provide more advise after the initial issue is discovered by your Home Inspector.
These will vary from company to company.
At Prairie Building Inspection these can include Appliance recall check. If a manufacture issues a recall after our home inspections you will be notified.
