A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure
and systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation. Having a home
inspected is like giving it a physical check-up. If problems or symptoms are
found, we may recommend further evaluation.
You should learn as much as you can about the condition of the property and
the need for any major repairs before you buy, so that you can minimize
unpleasant surprises and difficulties afterwards. Of course, a buyer home
inspection also points out the positive aspects of a home, as well as the
maintenance that will be necessary to keep it in good shape. After the
inspection, you will have a much clearer understanding of the property you
are about to purchase.
If you are already a homeowner, a home inspection may be used to identify
problems in the making and to learn preventive measures that might avoid
costly future repairs. If you are planning to sell your home, you may wish to
have a seller inspection done before placing your home on the market. This
will give you a better understanding of conditions which may be discovered
by the buyer's inspector, and an opportunity to make repairs that will put the
house in better selling condition.
No. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition
of your prospective home. It is not an appraisal, which determines market
value, or a municipal inspection, which verifies local code compliance. A
home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but rather describe its
physical condition and indicate what may need repair or replacement.
It is not necessary for you to be present for the inspection, but it is highly
recommended. You will be able to observe the inspector and ask questions
directly, as you learn about the condition of the home, 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 first-hand through the inspector's eyes.
No house is perfect. If the inspector identifies problems, it doesn't necessarily
mean you shouldn't buy the house, only that you will know in advance what to
expect. A seller may adjust the purchase price or contract terms if major
problems are found. If your budget is tight, or if you don't wish to become
involved in future repair work, this information will be extremely important to
