House hunting can be extremely exciting, and you can get very taken up with the layout, colors, and ambiance of your potential house. Before you can get too carried away, you will need to do a thorough home inspection. A home inspection is when a house is visually and physically evaluated from top to bottom. A good home inspector will discuss the quality of construction and maintenance your potential home has been through. 

There are many myths and misconceptions that have run rampant among the general public. Believing these myths opens you up to the possibility of purchasing a lot of buyer’s remorse instead of a beautiful and safe home. 

It is important to fully understand the home inspection process before going through it. To help you steer clear of these misconceptions,1st Selection Home Inspection has debunked some of the most widely believed myths about home inspection.

Myth 1: Buyers don’t belong at home inspections.
It doesn’t matter whether you know anything about home construction or maintenance, buyers should definitely be present during the home inspection process. This will give us the ability to teach you about the home and the maintenance required so that you’re more prepared when you take ownership.

Myth 2: Brand new homes don’t need to be inspected.
Faulty construction can lead to all types of repair nightmares in the future. With houses that have been lived in, we can see signs of moisture penetration, mold, and other issues that develop in time. New construction homes require a thorough inspection to determine the level of professionalism observed in the construction.

Myth 3: A newly renovated home doesn’t need to be inspected.
Unfortunately, some flippers are more interested in profit than in safety. If the house has been flipped, you’ll want to make sure that they acquired the right building permits and that the code inspectors have verified the remodeling.
