What to know about the home inspection
We know that buying and selling a home has many ups and downs. Home inspections offer buyers and sellers an opportunity for the thorough review from an unbiased professional home inspector an understanding on the condition of a home.
Home inspections provide buyers/sellers the confidence that you are aware of any issues before closing on your new home as well as any issues on the property. These home inspections can save you thousands of dollars (or more) in repairs, or possibly much more by unknowingly purchasing a money pit.
What’s included in your home inspection?
During your home inspections, inspectors provide an in-depth look at the property. We want to uncover any unforeseen issue along with the obvious concerns. The home inspection provides visual assessments of a house’s physical structure and mechanical systems. This includes an evaluation of the roof, ceilings, walls, floors, windows and doors.
Home inspectors also check that your major appliances are functional, analyze the heating and air-conditioning system, inspect the plumbing and electrical systems along with other options such as radon testing and scoping the sewer.

When should I get a home inspection?
Home inspections typically occurs once the seller has accepted an offer but before closing on the house. You’ll need a minimum of 10 days to have an inspection done. If it’s a new house, a builder may need up to a month or more. If the homeowner needs repair time, you can do it earlier. But give yourself time to evaluate the report before closing on the home.
Who hires the home inspector?
You should always hire a home inspector. Although home sellers may have a pre-sale inspection done, it’s critical to have your purchase inspected. It’s important to have a third-party do a full and thorough inspection so you don’t encounter any surprises.
