The Assurance You Need
When you’re buying a house, getting a home inspection from a trusted Oviedo home inspector is critical.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for a fixer upper or a turnkey property, you want to know its condition beforehand, so you know exactly what you’re walking into.
A home inspection prevents you from the uncomfortable surprise of moving in and finding out that your dream home is actually a money pit. It will also give you information you can use to update, repair, or maintain parts of your home before and after you move in. (Or help you negotiate the price to cover the cost of the roof you’ll have to replace.)
When it comes to your home, there’s no such thing as too much information.
Having a thorough idea of your home’s condition is invaluable information that gives you the confidence to move forward with the sale… or move on.
Expert Oviedo Home Inspector
As valuable as a home inspection is, it’s only as good as the professional you’re using.

This level of knowledge can only be acquired through years of hands-on experience.

The Benefits Of A Good Home Inspection
Buying a new home is often one of the biggest purchases you’ll make in your lifetime, and one of the most important. A good house is not just four walls and a roof over your head, it’s a place to let your family grow and thrive. The spot where you’ll make incredible memories from holidays, family gatherings, game nights with friends, and lazy Saturday mornings. A good house can also be a great investment, especially compared to renting. But if you’re not careful, that new house you’re buying could turn out to be a huge mistake. That’s why getting a home inspection before you make the purchase is so important.
Keep in mind that there is no such thing as “passing” or “failing” a home inspection. The point of the home inspection is to give you an accurate picture of how the home is at that moment in time. Are there any leaks in the roof? Does the electrical system work? Is the property properly graded for water drainage? Finding an issue doesn’t automatically mean the sale of the home should be stopped. Instead, the inspection gives you the information needed to make a smart financial decision for you and your family. If the home inspection finds something wrong with the roof, you can work with the seller to make sure that is fixed before the deal is finalized. Or take the cost of the new roof off the price of the home.
Rocky Metcalf and Extra Mile are trusted Oviedo home inspectors, who have the knowledge and the skill to give you the information you need to make an informed decision when buying your next house.
Home Inspections Are Not Just For Buyers
Homebuyers are often the ones who end up getting a home inspected, but there are several reasons for a home seller to also want to get a home inspection. Knowing the exact status of your home gives you the ability to properly price your home before it’s listed. You’ll have a list of improvements that should be done before putting the house on the market, and you won’t be surprised when the buyer pays for an inspection and comes back demanding major repairs or asking that you knock thousands of dollars off the price.
Knowledge is power, and there’s no better way to learn about a home than through an inspection.
