Why is a Home Inspection Important?

Are you in the process of purchasing a Kelowna home? First off, congratulations! What an exciting time for you. The team at Quincy Vrecko and Associates want to ensure this Kelowna home purchase is as smooth as possible! First things first, home inspections… why are they important? Do we need to get one done on our potential future Kelowna home? What is the reasoning behind a home inspection?

What will your home inspector look for?


Things a Home Inspector will look for,

  • Heating

  • Roof

  • Walls

  • Foundation

  • Electrical system

  • Attic

  • Ceilings

  • Much much more!

The home inspector will be able to give you a detailed outline of what is wrong with the home and what you may have to replace down the road. This can save you money as you know if there will be any big expenses coming up to be aware of and if this Kelowna home is still a contender!

Most of the time a home inspection will be a “subject” on your purchase contract. Now the benefit in placing as a subject on your home is if there is substantial underlying damage on the home that you could not have noticed while doing the initial viewing, you can most of the time, back out of the sale.

We highly recommend attending the home inspection. We especially recommend attending the inspection if you are a first time home buyer as will have more questions about your first home that your inspector can answer. Attending your home inspection has plenty of benefits. The inspector will not only walk through the home and give you and the seller a detailed outline of the condition of the home but they can also walk you through where all of the shut off valves are, inform you of approx life of your roof, appliances etc. and is there to answer any questions or concerns you may have of the home.
