What is the purpose of a home inspection?

Home inspections are used to provide an opportunity for a buyer to identify any major issues with a home prior to closing. Your first clue that a home inspection is important is that it can be used as a contingency in your contract with the seller.

In the process of closing a home sale, the buyer typically hires a home inspector to come to the house and perform a visual observation. In accordance with the state’s standards, the home inspector identifies health, safety, or major mechanical issues.

A typical inspection takes about 90 minutes. We offer a team approach so we have more eyes on your investment. Our reports are usually submitted within 1-2 hours after the inspection. The home inspector will go through the interior and exterior of the house to record any broken, defective, or hazardous issues with the house and the area surrounding the house.

10 Reasons You Shouldn't Skip A Home Inspection

  • It Provides an "Out"
  • Safety
  • Reveal Illegal Additions or Installations
  • Protection
  • Negotiating Tool
  • Forecast Future Costs
  • Determine "Deal-Breakers"
  • Learn to Protect Your Investment
  • Reveal the Big Picture
  • Insurance

The Bottom Line

It is your responsibility to understand as many details as you can about the property you may soon call home. Home inspections reveal the inner workings of the property, allowing you to be informed of all the perks and pitfalls the home has to offer.

How a home inspection works when it’s your house in the hot seat

Like going to the doctor or bringing your car to a mechanic, home inspections can be nerve-racking and traumatic. When it’s your house in the hot seat, even a fairly clean inspection report might sting a bit.

News flash: no home is perfect. However, a home inspection will allow you to take steps to minimize unwanted surprises and be informed on potential future problems.

Remember, a home inspection is not a pass or fail test. It does, however, open the door for renegotiation. You’re not obligated to fix anything, but the buyer can also walk away if they’re not satisfied.

With these fragile dynamics, the last thing you want to do is go into the home inspection blind and risk killing a contract worth saving.
