Get Your Home Inspected Before You Move


When the time comes for you to make a new home purchase, you understandably want to make the best buying decision possible. This may be one of the largest items that you will purchase, and it may be the home that you and your family live in for years or even decades.

While cost, style and size are all important factors to consider when shopping for a new home, it is also important that you consider the condition of the home. Ordering a 

plumbing inspection 

is a great way to ensure that your new home is in great shape right from the start.

What Can You Learn From a Plumbing Inspection?

A basic home inspection will tell you a little about your new home's plumbing system, but it is not a thorough review of all of the plumbing components. For example, a home inspection may tell you if the toilet does not flush or a faucet is dripping, but it may not tell you if there is a slow leak in the foundation or if the pipes are severely weakened and are at risk for rupturing. A plumbing inspection is far more thorough and complete, and this will tell you everything you need to know about your plumbing system.

What Are the Benefits of a Plumbing Inspection?

Plumbing issues can result in costly repairs, property damage, mold growth and the inability to access certain plumbing features. Clearly, it is important that you

understand more about the condition of your property up-front before you finalize your plans to buy it. A plumbing inspection gives you a complete and thorough look at the condition of all aspects of the plumbing system, including those that are hidden in the walls, ground and foundation.

How Can New Home Buyers Prepare Their Plumbing Before Moving In?

A plumbing inspection will include a written report for you to review. Before you move into your new home, you should read through the report to determine which items require your urgent attention. Issues that may be causing property damage or that may require significant effort and time to repair should be completed before you move in. Some buyers will negotiate with their seller to have some work completed before they finalize their plans to buy the home. 

Every home buyer wants to make a smart decision when buying a new home. While you want to pay attention to cost, style and other factors when making your

decision, you also want to learn more about the property's condition. Through a plumbing inspection, you can learn everything you need to about your new home's condition.
