When purchasing an older (five years or more) home, you can get away with a bi-annual certified home maintenance inspection. The reason why, is that your older home has already gone through the natural settling processes after being built. So the likelihood of the structure having anymore settling changes are very low, but still strongly advised to have a bi-annual certified home inspection completed. As your previous certified home inspection at the time of purchase, could have discovered structural issues that need to be watched over time or one of the other main systems of your home: roof, walls, foundation, HVAC, electrical, plumbing and items flagged that are starting to malfunction.
Newly built homes should strongly have an annual certified home maintenance inspection. As the new home settles over time, the structure and main systems could have costly issues discovered by the untrained eye. This also shows a track record that you can share with your insurance company, bank for retaining equity value and your realtor when reselling your home.
Having an annual certified home maintenance inspection, will clear up any concerns that you may have regarding the health of your home. No more worrying about your roof or foundation or other main systems being being compromised, an annual certified home maintenance inspection will give you a full picture of any unseen repairs, that need to be completed before you put your home up for resale.
