Home inspections are designed to help give a professional overview of the current condition of your home regarding its infrastructure, interiors, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems as well. Home inspections help potential sellers upsell their home if they can prove that it’s in prime condition during the show period, and home inspections help potential buyers better understand what needs to be adjusted on the home to meet local code regulations, or if there’s some repairs that need to be done before moving in.
What To Expect
You may be somewhat confused about what you will receive when you hire us for your home inspection. Here are some of the things that you can expect from to receive from us.
What Is It?
A home inspection is a thorough inspection of a home or business, given by a licensed professional, who assesses the current condition of a property that you are buying and selling. Home inspectors are unbiased professionals that help pin point any potential problems that a home may have, to make you aware of them. A pre-listing inspection, for the seller, will bring to light any issues that the home may have, so that it can be repaired or addressed, prior to listing. A buyer’s inspection will give an overview of all of the home’s systems and any potential issues that might need to be negotiated or repaired, prior to closing on the home. It is a full report, that lists all of the homes general information, a summary page that goes over the overall condition & the most pressing issues with the home, and then a full detailed report, with all of the specifics & digital photos to show you exactly what the inspector is referring to.
How It’s Done
A home inspection is done by a licensed home inspector that reviews every part of the home, from roof, to foundation, to systems. The home inspection takes about 2 hours, on average, for the home inspector to complete. Some inspections take less time, and others take more, based on the size of the home & other factors. During the inspection, the inspector will make notes and take pictures of every potential issue that he finds, as well as things like noting the size of the hot water heater. Upon completing the inspection, the inspector will meet with the buyer or seller or their agent, to review the report. If an onsite report has been requested, the inspector will complete, print, and review the report at the property. If an onsite report is not necessary, a digital copy of the report will be e-mailed to the buyer or seller for easier use.
