As we show you in this video, an inspector checks the safety and condition of the home you’re planning to buy.
Home Inspectors focus especially on the structure, construction, and mechanical systems of the house and will make you aware of repairs that are needed.
The Inspector does not evaluate whether or not you’re getting good value for your money. (This is not an appraisal of value.)
Generally, an inspector checks (and may give estimates for repairs on):
- the electrical system
- plumbing and waste disposal
- the water heater
- insulation and ventilation
- the heating and AC system
- water source and quality
- the potential presence of pests
- the foundation, doors, windows, ceilings, walls, floors, and roof.
Be sure to hire a home inspector that is qualified and experienced.
It’s a good idea to have an inspection completed during the inspection contingency period, ou sign a written offer since once the deal is closed you’ve bought the house as-is.
