Buyer-Seller Inspections

 

What Does a Home Inspection Consist of?

A home inspection consists of two parts, a visual inspection of the exterior and a visual inspection of the interior.  A fully certified, licensed, and an insured inspector will meet you at the inspection site and walk the property with you.

The visual inspection covers:

  • Heating and Cooling Systems

  • Interior Plumbing

  • Electrical Systems

  • Roof and Attic areas

  • Plumbing

  • Visible Insulation

  • Walls, Ceilings, and Floors

  • Windows and Doors

  • Foundation

  • Basement Areas

  • Exterior

Why Should I Get a Home Inspection?

Buying a home is a very big investment.  Our inspection process guides our expert slowly through the home so you can make an informed decision before you buy.  The number one reason to get a home inspection is to identify any possible safety issues or repairs that need to be done before the home is ready to be lived in.

Inspections are useful tools for potential home buyers but they don't cover everything.  Licensed inspectors are looking for safety issues in homes. They don't check for local building code compliance, give appraisals of the value of a home and an inspection is not a guarantee that nothing will go wrong in the future. The inspection should be used as a way to gauge whether a home is reasonably priced and safe for the home buyer to move into. Inspections are also a prerequisite for most home insurance policies.

What If The Inspection Uncovers a Problem?

If the inspection uncovers a major issue with the home, an unstable foundation or severe leak in the piping that has caused structural damage, it can be a valid reason to void an offer on a home. This is only if the offer has been clearly made contingent upon the inspection results. If there are several minor issues that are uncovered, the home buyer can ask for the seller to fix them before the purchase or ask for a reduction in the price to cover the cost of repairs.

Buying a new home? Need a home inspection? Our inspectors are fully licensed and certified.  Each inspection goes through a team of quality assurance professionals that put each inspection through a verification process to ensure the inspection report is done right the first time.
