WHAT IS A HOME INSPECTION?
WHY DO I NEED A HOME INSPECTION?
Buying a home could be the largest single investment you will ever make. To help minimize surprises and unexpected deficiencies, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about the newly constructed or existing house before you buy it. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will know more about the house, which will allow you to make an informed decision regarding your purchase.
If you’re already a homeowner, a home inspection can identify problems in the making and suggest preventive measures that might help you avoid costly future repairs. If you are planning to sell your home, a home inspection can give you the opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.
WHAT DOES A HOME INSPECTION INCLUDE?
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE THE HOME INSPECTION?
You should schedule the home inspection immediately after the contract or purchase agreement has been signed. Before you sign, be sure there is an inspection clause in the sales contract, making your final purchase obligation contingent on the findings of a professional home inspection. This clause should specify the terms and conditions to which both the buyer and seller are obligated.
