Your Home Inspection Expert Can Save You Money

Your Home Inspection  Expert has inspected over 8,000 residential properties. In today’s Real Estate Market, both Realtors’ and Home Owners realize the importance of a Home Inspection when purchasing a previously owned home or a brand new home.  A professional home inspection will provide the Buyer with a snap shot view of the current condition of the home.

What is a Home Inspection

home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. Home inspections are usually conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components.


Your Home Inspection Expert

Your Professional Home Inspection Expert will provide the following items:

  • a thorough visual inspection of the structure (inside and out, from roof to foundation);
  • an examination of major systems (plumbing, electrical, heating, cooling);
  • an objective evaluation of the condition of over 400 items;
  • a report with pictures covering all findings and identifying all potential concerns or maintenance issues.

Once you have arranged for a home inspection, plan to accompany the inspector for the entire procedure. Any professional  home inspection company will encourage you to be present. Being there helps you to better understand the findings in the home inspection report and can help reduce unexpected repair costs. Do not forget to bring a list of questions or concerns. A thorough home inspection will cover many items, everything from the foundation to the roof and will take two to three hours on average, based on the size of the home. The report should reflect the condition of all these items. To help you choose a qualified home inspection company that will conduct a thorough inspection of a property, and provide you with an objective report of its condition use the following guidelines:

  • Do you follow industry standards?
  • Are you a full time home inspection company?
  • May I attend the inspection?
  • How much time will the inspection take?
  • When will the report be ready?
  • What will be inspected?
  • What will I receive with the inspection?
  • Do you carry errors and omissions and general liability insurance?

Your Home Inspection Experts Training

Training is an important part of your Home Inspectors credentials and is something you should focus on prior to hiring a Home Inspector.  Some Home Inspectors only have some local part time college training and have never been involved in the construction, building or trades in any way shape or form.  Many Home Inspectors lump their previous job experience and anything remotely considered work experience as their Home Inspection Qualifications.

Buying a home is largely an emotional experience, very similar to buying a car.  Typically the buyer focuses on all the items they like which gives them incentive to buy the home. Its only after a while that you start to notice items of concern.  Many buyers learn too late of such unseen conditions as leaking foundations, deteriorated plumbing, worn-out heating system, and dangerous wiring. A home inspection can help the home buyer avoid costly mistakes and provide them with peace of mind. Once money changes hands it is almost impossible to have the seller fix anything and if you contact the Realtor they will tell you to call the home inspector.   So, it is in your Best Interests to get the home inspector that will tell everything about the house before your buy it.
