Before You Buy, Inspect!

A home inspection is an important step when purchasing a new home. You want to make certain the home is in good condition, and you want a trained expert to give it an evaluation. home-inspectionsDuring a home inspection, a qualified inspector takes a look at the property. Their services are in depth and impartial. An inspector will review everything from the roof, attic, walls, ceilings, floors, doors, windows and the foundation to air conditioning systems, electrical systems and plumbing. An inspection is not meant to point out every small detail such as cosmetic issues, rather it is to go beyond what the eye can see.

It’s not necessary, but we recommend that a buyer be present for the inspection so they can ask questions directly and get a better idea as to how to maintain the home and what condition it’s in. The inspector gives a written report after the inspection, and it might be better understood if the buyer was present during the process. The goal of the inspection is to find and let you know if there are visible problems, if repairs should be made and whether there is concealed damage.
