The concept of an annual home inspection has been around for a long time, but it may just now be catching on that this is a good idea. Why wait until you plan to sell your home and then get overwhelmed with all the small items that you have not stayed on top of. As a home inspector in the Prescott area, as well as the Phoenix metro area, we have seen houses that have so much going for them when they hit the market, but then once all the items from a home inspection come up the buyers get concerned with the potential added cost of fixing them, and it sometimes causes them to look elsewhere.
It is easy to stay on top of the maintenance items, and sometimes delay the more costly repairs that all homes need over time, by getting a “home health checkup” on a regular basis – just like going to the doctor for your wellness exams, or taking your car to the shop for routine maintenance. Your home is perhaps your largest asset, so maximize your investment and consider a regular home inspection to provide you with an easy to understand to-do list.
After the inspection you will have a clear idea of the items that need attention so that you may decide what you can do on your own, and what you may need a professional contractor to complete. Then you can enjoy your home more while you live there, and can have fewer surprises when you go to sell it.
