What’s Included in Your Certified Home Inspection:
Residential Home Inspections
The purpose of an inspection isn’t just to find problems with the house; It’s also about making sure that you don’t buy something that will cause other headaches down the road. If you’re planning on purchasing a brand-new home, then hiring a home inspector could save you thousands of dollars. It will also help you understand the property you want to buy and the possible defects. A home inspection can improve your confidence as a buyer or a real estate agent.
Commercial Building Inspections
A commercial building inspection helps you identify potential problems before they become expensive repairs or even worse, unsafe structure. It also gives you peace of mind knowing that your property is safe for tenants and visitors. This type of inspection is required by law in most states. Whether you’re looking for a quick turnaround or a comprehensive inspection, our certified property inspectors are ready to serve you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Buying or selling a home can be a stressful experience, but we’re here to ensure you know what to expect during your home inspection.
A home inspection includes checking for any structural issues such as foundation cracks, roof leaks, plumbing issues, electrical wiring, heating/cooling systems, insulation, windows, doors, chimneys, etc. Depending on how big the property is, a home inspection typically takes 2-3 hours.
Ensure all inspection points are free from clutter, including any closets that might lead to a crawlspace or attic, and clearing some space around your home’s perimeter. It’s also important to check the functionality of all built-in appliances, electric, and gas. If you don’t plan to attend the inspection, make sure your inspector has access to the home, and all pets are properly contained or moved.
A home doesn’t pass or fail an inspection. Instead, a home inspection is a thorough audit of your home’s components. In most cases, there will be concerns marked on your home inspection report, but these are strictly informative.
While you can legally skip a home inspection in many cases, doing so could mean you may end up buying a home that has major issues that need to be fixed.
While a home inspector may recommend some minor repairs, they are not qualified to make major repairs. He or she can provide information about what needs to be repaired — and it might be helpful to know that information — but the decision to actually do the work lies solely with the homeowner. Not only does this you the freedom to choose your contractors, but it also helps prevent a conflict of interest.
A home inspection can affect appraisals for two reasons: 1) The inspector may find something wrong with the property that would lower the value of the home, 2) The inspector may find things that need repair which could increase the value of the home. If the inspection finds issues that require repairs, then the seller has to decide whether they want to fix them themselves, or hire someone else to do it. If the buyer wants to purchase the home, he/she must be willing to pay for those repairs.
