The complex task of assessing a home is more difficult because of some of the common myths attached to the process of home inspection.
For the real facts on what you can expect here’s a few of the worst misconceptions, along with some helpful tips from the experienced inspectors from Knight Property Services.
MYTH: An appraisal is just as comprehensive as a home inspection; or, if I have a really good appraisal, it won’t be necessary to have a home inspection.
FACT: Home inspections and home appraisals are NOT the same. As ridiculous as it sounds, some homeowners end up assuming a comprehensive appraisal has covered all the bases. Home inspections are critical in ensuring that you receive the quality of home that you pay for.
MYTH: All home inspectors are licensed and my inspector says he’s certified – so I’m safe.
FACT: Only 30 states require licensing, but even licensed inspectors will vary in their qualifications. Some inspectors get all their training online and never complete a field test or take a comprehensive examination.
That is why it is critically important that you choose a home inspector that you can trust and that is certified by InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors). Knight Property Services is InterNACHI certified to provide home inspections to the home buyers of Greenville, South Carolina and surrounding areas.
