Home Inspections 1

Why a buyer needs a home inspection: 

A home inspection is an evaluation of a home’s condition by a trained expert.  During a home inspection, a qualified inspector takes an in-depth, unbiased look at your potential new home.  A home inspector gives the buyer detailed information by evaluating the overall physical condition of the structure and the mechanical systems such as electrical, plumbing, heating, and air conditioning.  Hiring a qualified home inspector could keep you from buying a house that will cost you far more in repairs down the road.

 

What to expect from a home inspection:

During a home inspection, the home inspector will concentrate on the condition and structure of your home.  A home inspector will point out safety concerns and identify items that should be repaired or replaced.  After the inspection is complete, you will receive a written report of the findings from the home inspector.
