Do I really need a home inspection in today’s HOT real estate market?

We hear this question all of the time: “Do I really need a home inspection in today’s “hot” real estate market?”

Rather than answering this question for you at this time, let us ask you three questions first:

  1. Are you willing to make a $200,000, $300,000 or even a $500,000 gamble?
  2. Are you willing to spend another $25,000 or even $100,000 on repairs to the roof, foundation or for mold remediation after you purchase the home?
  3. Would you be willing to essentially make a $250,000 (or more) purchase “as is?”

The reason we ask these questions is that we have performed well over 20,000 inspections since 1990. During our inspections, we have discovered dangerous structural issues, extensive mold growth and even major safety issues such as faulty electrical wiring. Without a thorough home inspection by Housebusters Inspection Services, these buyers likely would have been on the financial hook for these very expensive repairs — and would have also put their families’ health and safety at risk.

Below, we will answer more questions we often hear about this issue — whether or not to schedule a home inspection.



But what if major issues aren’t found? Aren’t home inspections then just a waste of time and money?

Nearly every home has at least minor issues, even many “new” homes. Even when only minor issues are found, Housebusters takes the time to educate and inform home buyers. We want our clients to always feel they “got their money’s worth.” We encourage our clients to attend their home inspections. We show our clients utility cutoffs and discuss routine maintenance that will be needed on the home. Because of our extensive construction experience, we can even discuss ways to prevent major issues in the home or how to renovate or add square footage in the most cost-effective manner. We can even discuss ways to improve the energy efficiency of the home, because of our qualifications and experience. We will answer every one of your questions. We are also available to answer your questions long after the inspection.

In short, our clients typically tell us that their home inspection was well worth the expense because of what they learned about their home! They also often tell us they LOVE our quality, caring service!


But don’t home inspections slow the process?

Actually no. If you call Housebusters, we typically perform your home inspection within 48 hours. We then provide you with your inspection report within 48 hours of the completed inspection. We often provide you the report the very same day we perform your inspection.

In short, if you call Housebusters on a Monday, you will likely have your completed inspection report Thursday or Friday.
