What Every Buyer Needs to Know about Inspections


What Every Buyer Needs to Know about Home Inspections:

 While a home inspection report is vital before purchasing an older home, experts agree that even newer homes should be checked. Not only will the report help you learn about repairs that should be made immediately, it’s a handy reference guide to keep on-hand throughout the time you live in the home. Because there are so many aspects to a professional home inspection, many first-time home buyers know little about the process. We’ve chosen two aspects to focus on today.

1. Report Format

Professional home inspectors use different formats when detailing information about the house. All reports, however, should contain several common features:

  • A description, in detail, of the condition of the home’s major systems.
  • A list of items that require immediate repair.
  • A list of general maintenance items.
  • Photographs.

Ask inspectors that you interview to supply you with a sample report. Ensure that the above items are included and that the inspector not only lists what’s wrong, but why it’s a problem and what should be done to remedy it.

2. Choosing an Inspector

Choose your home inspector carefully, as any mistakes made will cost you money. At the same time, keep in mind that the home inspector performs a visual survey. He will not tear up walls or floors to look for problems. A professionally trained inspector, however, knows what to look for and can spot warning signs. You'll want to choose a inspector that will walk you through the home after he/she finishes the inspection and explain their findings.

The price you pay for a professional home inspection during the home purchase process is worth every cent. Use due diligence and hire the most experienced, professional home inspector in your area and complete your home purchase with confidence.

Where will you find this super-sleuth? Ask everyone you know, including your real estate agent.  We have worked with many inspectors and can recommend quality professionals.
