Home Inspection Process
it's not pass or fail
There are two types of home inspections; buyers inspection and sellers inspection. The buyers inspection is the most common but the seller can also get a home inspection as well. The process is the same but the timing is different. A buyer gets a home inspection after they have the property under contract and the seller gets a home inspection prior to listing.
The average home inspection takes 3-4 hours to complete. During that time a licensed home inspector will thoroughly analyze the home, interior and exterior, and documents broken and/or hazardous issues.
It is encouraged for the buyer and their real estate agent to be present for the inspection. We encourage buyers to ask questions during or after the inspection to ensure that any concerns are addressed while the inspector is onsite.
Some items home inspectors look for:
After the inspection is complete, the home inspector will prepare a report that will be emailed to the client for there use. For any defect, the home inspector will tell the client who can be contacted for further evaluation and/or correction. For instance, "contact a licensed electrician for repair". Please feel free to call us if you have any questions about anything on your inspection report or would like further explanation.
