    What is a Home Inspection?

    A home inspection is an evaluation of visible and accessible components of a home, such as, electrical, plumbing, heating, etc... A home inspection is not an appraisal of the property's value, nor is it a report on repair costs on items that are not functioning as intended.  A home inspector knows state and local building code requirements, however a home inspector is more oriented to safety issues and structural failures and deterioration. 

                             The Home Inspection

    The home inspector will provide you with a written contract to be signed prior to the inspector entering the property. The inspection may take anywhere from three to four hours to conduct. it is recommended that the homebuyer be present for the inspection. If this is not possible the real estate agent can represent you. Schedule the inspection during daylight hours. All utilities should be switched on (electric, water gas). A complete report on the property, covering all aspects of the inspection, along with a summary page will be provided to the home buyer within three days of the completion of the inspection. The report will cover: foundation, basement and structure, exterior, roof, plumbing system, electrical system, central heating system, air conditioning system, interior, kitchen appliances and summary report. Let professionals help you make an informed decision prior to purchasing a home.
