Your home is the most meaningful place in your everyday life and having knowledge about it's well being is extremely important. A Home Inspection gives you peace of mind, informing you about the details and current condition of the subject property. Home inspections are an important part of transferring a house from a seller to a buyer. A home inspector will check a home's plumbing, heating and cooling, electrical systems, and look for structural problems. Inspections reveal needs for repairs or replacements to eliminate surprises later.
Inspections also give invaluable information about the home, such as where main utility shutoff valves are located and how the house operates. And although it’s not required, it’s to your advantage to be at the home when the inspector is there. You'll be able to clearly understand the inspection report, and know exactly which areas need attention. Plus, you can get answers to many questions, tips for maintenance, and a lot of general information that will help you when you move into your new home. Most important, you'll see the home through the eyes of an objective third party.
A home cannot "pass" or "fail" an inspection, and an inspector will not tell you whether he or she thinks the home is worth the money being offered. The inspector's job is to make you aware of repairs that are recommended or necessary.
In addition to the overall inspection, you may wish to have separate tests conducted to check for termites, or the presence of radon gas or mold. You can talk to me as your trusted real estate agent for more information about these tests, and companies in the area that perform them.
In choosing a home inspector, consider one that has been certified as a qualified and experienced member by a trade association. As your real estate agent, I can refer you to qualified inspectors in the area and/or Inspectors I have worked with in the past.
