Guide To Home Inspection For Buyer And Sellers

Guide To Home Inspection For Buyer And Sellers

   Home inspections are an essential component of real estate transactions for millions of buyers and sellers. Whether you are shopping for a previously owned house or a brand new house, an inspection provides insight into the condition of the home you are buying.

What is a home inspection?

   A home inspection is a thorough visual examination of the condition of the home and property.

What is not?
  • A home inspection is not an appraisal, and vice versa

  • A home inspection report is not a warranty

  • A home inspection does not detect every conceivable flaw

   When performed by a qualified professional, it includes:

  • A thorough visual inspection of the structure (inside and out, from foundation to roof).

  • An examination of all major systems.

  • An objective evaluation of the condition of more than 400 items.

  • A printed report covering all findings and identifying potential concerns.

  Buying a home is largely an emotional experience. Sometimes it’s love at first sight. But often love is blind, and many buyers learn too late of such unseen conditions as cracked foundations, deteriorated plumbing, worn out heating systems, or dangerous wiring.

  A professional home inspection is your best resource in identifying such pitfalls and their consequences, such as:

  • Costly repairs

  • Inconvenience

  • Animosity

  • Disappointment

  It is important that you, as the home buyer, be present during the two to three hour inspection. By accompanying the inspector you will gain additional insight into the home’s condition.

  A home inspection is a prudent first step in the process of selling your home. You, as the seller, must present the most saleable property possible. A home inspection report will reveal the current condition of your house with specific evaluations of more than 400 items, and guide you toward enhancing the value and marketability of your property.

  In general a home inspection benefits all parties involved in the real estate transaction.
