CERTIFIED HOME INSPECTION
What is a home inspection?
A home inspection helps you make a more informed decision about the home you're considering buying and can identify potential issues, plus give you a better idea of the ongoing maintenance the property will require.
A home inspection is a visual assessment of a house's physical structure and mechanical systems, including the roof, ceilings, walls, floors, windows and doors.
The inspector will check that major appliances are functional, scrutinize the heating and air-conditioning system, examine the plumbing and electrical systems and may even poke around in the attic and basement.
The goal of a home inspection is to uncover issues with the home itself. Inspectors won’t tell you if you’re getting a good deal on the home or offer an opinion on the sale price.
A good home inspection report is extensive, containing checklists, summaries, photographs and notes. It may estimate the remaining useful life of major systems and equipment, as well as that of the roof, structure, paint and finishes. The critical information will include recommended repairs and replacements, too.
An inspection is not a pass-fail exam. No fixes are mandatory after a home inspection, though it may uncover issues that prompt further negotiations with the seller. You’ll learn much about the home and gain confidence in the decision to move into your new address — or find out enough to pass on the purchase.
Inspection cost varies depending on square feet and how many stories. Check Pricing Tab to get complete pricing info and discounts for booking multiple inspections at once.
