While a home inspection whether it's for an all-around inspection or for something more specific like mold or radon, won't come cheap that doesn't mean you should skimp out on such an important purchase. When shopping for real estate you want to be as secure as possible with the home you're about to spend a lot of money on and one of the best ways to guarantee that happens is by having the home inspected by a certified home inspector.
A certified home inspector will inspect your home if you hire them for their services and you'll come to find that it'll be one of the smartest decisions you make in regards to the home buying process. The reason why home inspections are worth every penny they cost is because they will either save you from spending a lot of money down the line or give you peace of mind in the money you're willing to spend on any home you're interested in.
The purpose of a radon, home or mold inspection is to give the home a thorough inspection to find any issues, be they minor or major, short term or long term, that will give you a proper idea of the home's worth and stability. If a home inspection report comes up clean you might have lost out on a couple of hundred dollars in home inspection fees but the confidence boost you gained in your quest to purchase the home will be priceless, which is something you can't put a price on.
On the flip side of that is when home inspection report comes back having found issues in the home. Depending on the severity of the home inspection report findings you may either want to walk away from the home entirely and not risk taking on a home that will require a lot in repair costs or use the report as a negotiating tool to lower the asking price of the home or to get the homeowner to cover all the costs. Whichever type of home inspection report comes your way you can see just how valuable they are from the above descriptive scenarios we laid out for you.
Of course not every interested home buyer thinks they need to hire a home inspector and they will risk purchasing a home without a proper mold, home or radon inspection completed. We advise against taking such a stance when it comes to the home buying process and strongly urge you to re-consider. Think of the money you spend on home inspections as an investment on your future and one that you can't afford to skip out on!
