Buying a home in Victoria, BC, can be an amazing experience – equal parts terrifying, exhilarating, and stressful. If you have all of the information you need to make an informed decision, the experience can provide substantial benefits for years to come.
What is a House Inspection?
A home inspection in Victoria – whether it’s a pre-listing, condo, townhome, or house inspection – is a comprehensive visual inspection to identify issues or concerns that may be present already, or depending on certain conditions, could happen. Your Homeworx inspector will review as much of your home as possible, drawing from extensive personal experience in the construction industry. Following the inspection, you will be presented with a comprehensive report that outlines what the inspector found.
WHY HAVE A HOUSE INSPECTED?
One of the biggest benefits a Homeworx professional home inspector can provide is an objective, unbiased opinion of your potential new home. The Homeworx home inspector works for you – the home buyer, and our job is to ensure we represent your interests.
THE PROBLEM WITH DIY INSPECTION
While you may have a solid understanding of many DIY projects around your home, a fully trained and qualified home inspector has the experience and understanding of construction best practices to thoroughly inspect your home.
From a safety and financial perspective, choosing not to complete a home inspection, or assuming you can do it yourself, could potentially put you in an unnecessarily difficult situation.
To provide an objective perspective, we follow a defined routine to visually inspect your new home and we'll share this information with you so you can make an informed decision about your potential purchase.
A NEGATIVE HOME INSPECTION ISN’T A ‘SHOW-STOPPER’
The home inspection may reveal substantial issues with the new home, but you can still proceed with your purchase with the knowledge that you will have some repairs to make sooner rather than later. The home inspection is a snapshot of issues present in the home on the day of the inspection, and in many cases these issues can be resolved by experienced professionals.
By choosing not to have a thorough visual inspection, you’re risking your purchase – hundreds of thousands of dollars – for no good reason. The Homeworx professional inspection is economical, and the Homeworx team has the flexibility to complete your inspection quickly. Knowledge is power, so it’s vital to have the inspection done before you purchase your new home.
