Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ, FAQWhy Do I Need A Home Inspection?

The purchase of a home is one of the largest single investments you will make. It is important to educate yourself and learn as much as you can about the property’s condition. A home inspection minimizes unpleasant surprises and difficulties afterward and identifies the need for any major repairs before you buy. After the inspection, you will have a much clearer understanding of the home’s condition so you can move forward confidently and with peace of mind.

If you are already a current homeowner, a home inspection may be used to identify potential problems that may occur and allow you to take preventative measures that could help you avoid costly repairs in the future.

If you plan to place your home on the market, you may wish to have a pre-listing inspection performed before listing your home to sell. This will give you a better understanding of the conditions discovered by the buyer’s inspector and an opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in a better selling position. Having an inspection will help you comply with current disclosure laws concerning the sale of your property.

Can I Do It Myself?

Even the most experienced homeowner lacks the knowledge and years of expertise of a professional home inspector. An inspector is familiar with the elements of home construction and remains completely objective and unemotional about the home.

Can A Home Inspection Fail?

NO! A professional home inspection is an examination of the condition of the home on the day it is inspected; it is not an appraisal, which determines the market value, or a municipal inspection that verifies local code compliance, but rather describes its visible physical condition and indicates what may need major repairs now and in the near future.

Do I Have To Be There?

You don’t need to be present for the inspection, but it is highly recommended. You will be able to accompany the inspector and ask questions directly as you learn about the home’s condition, how its systems work and how to maintain it. You will also find the written report easier to understand if you’ve seen the property firsthand through the Inspector’s eyes.

Who Hires The Inspector?

The client usually retains the Inspector; the Inspector works for you. The report cannot be given to anyone else without your written consent.

How Much Does It Cost?

The purchase of a property will likely be the most expensive investment people will make in their lives; it doesn’t make sense to shop for the least costly Inspector you can find. What is the saying, “Pennywise and Pound Foolish.” That is most certainly true; in today’s world, you get what you pay for. Don’t be fooled by individuals whose training consists of viewing a videotape for 2 hours and then claim to be a “House Inspector.” Check for “Certifications” before hiring an inspector. No Home Inspection can guarantee there won’t be problems; even new homes are not perfect when their new owners move in.

A Certified Home Inspector can point out existing or potential problems that would require attention either by the seller or buyer. You, the buyer, save yourself from problems you never contemplated when buying the “Dream House” you wanted. You, the seller, are complying with current disclosure laws concerning the sale of your property.
