A home inspection is a visual snap shot of the condition of a home at the time of inspection. The home inspection process is often but not always performed prior to closing sale of the home. A home is one of the biggest investments most people will ever make. A home inspection is an inexpensive way to discover the overall condition of a home. A home inspection can help you avoid a costly mistake by purchasing a property in need of major repairs. Even if you think you have found a “dream home,” it is a home inspector’s responsibility to identify items that will be of concern to you.
A certified home inspector is a professional who will conduct an inspection of the general condition of the home. A professional home inspector will assist a purchaser in understanding exactly what they are about to buy. A home is typically staged to look inviting, but an inspector will cover features of the house such as electrical wiring, plumbing, roofing, insulation, as well as structural features of the home and may unveil issues that are not noticeable to the buyer’s eye. As a buyer, you are making a large investment, and it is important to understand exactly what you are purchasing. Having a professional home inspector conduct a thorough inspection of the prospective property, could be compared to taking out an insurance policy against all potential operating costs.
There are many kinds of home inspection processes that you may want to conduct before the purchase of a home. First you would need a general or residential inspection of the home. The professional home inspector would inspect the structure, exterior, roof, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, interior, insulation and ventilation. Once the inspection is completed, the home inspector will generally provide the buyer with a report suggesting any improvements or repairs deemed necessary to bring the home up to current standards. Home inspections may often reveal problems with a home that could be expensive to repair. This could be used as a method of re-negotiating price with the seller. If flaws were found within the home, the buyer now would have a couple more options in negotiations. A buyer could negotiate a credit with the sellers, have the seller pay for repairs before the closing, purchase the home as is, or walk away from the purchase.
