Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. I will use my skills, training and 30+ years of construction experience, to observe, report and explain issues found that can aﬀect one of the most important purchases of your life.
Following your inspection, I will provide you with an easy to read report, complete with supporting photos.
Most home inspection services consist of an on-site, in-person, detailed examination of the condition of a home. It is not a pass or fail test, but an assessment of the condition of the structure.
Home inspections help home buyers make important decisions. For example, after getting the results of a home inspection, a buyer may decide to:
Also, some sellers choose to have an inspection done before selling their home so they have a current inspection report to show prospective buyers. While this information can be helpful, you should have your own home inspection done prior to signing on the dotted line.
As a buyer, it is important to make sure that you are at the home, during the inspection. This is your chance to ask questions and see any issues first hand.
A home inspector will typically examine a property’s:
Home inspectors complete a report that outlines the property’s condition, as observed at the time of inspection. This report is provided to the client. It will normally show:
You should also keep in mind that:
Emotions can often affect buyers and make it hard to recognize any problems with their chosen home. A buyer needs a home inspection to point out various conditions of the home before final purchase and moving in.
More and more sellers are opting to have a thorough inspection of their home before they first list their home for sale. First and foremost would be to have a home inspection for full disclosure. You will have demonstrated that you did what you could to reveal any defects within the home. Secondly, you will save money and hassle by being aware of any defects now rather than after you have negotiated the sale and are thus faced with potential costly repairs discovered during the buyers inspection. Defects discovered prior to a pending sale will permit you to shop for repair estimates rather than dealing with inflated estimates a buyer may resent. Get your asking price by being prepared.
