Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is included in a home inspection?
    A typical home inspection covers various aspects of the property, including the exterior and interior components. This may include the foundation, walls, roof, windows, doors, HVAC systems, plumbing, electrical systems, insulation, ventilation, and more. The inspector will assess the general condition, identify any existing or potential issues, and provide a detailed report outlining their findings.
  • Can I attend the home inspection?
    Yes, as a buyer or seller, you can attend the home inspection in most instances. In fact, it is often encouraged for buyers to be present during the inspection. This allows them to ask questions, gain a better understanding of the property's condition, and receive firsthand explanations. Sellers may also choose to be present during the inspection, although it is common for them to provide access and then review the inspection report afterwards.
  • What is a home inspection?
    A home inspection is a comprehensive evaluation of a property's condition that is conducted by a professional inspector. It is a visual examination of the home's major systems, including the structure, roof, plumbing, electrical, heating, and cooling systems, as well as the overall safety and functionality of the property.
  • What if my house fails a home inspection?
    A home inspection is not a pass or fail examination. Instead, it provides an objective assessment of the property's condition. If issues are identified during the inspection, it's important to evaluate their significance and discuss them with your real estate agent. In some cases, you may negotiate repairs, credits, or price adjustments with the buyer or seller, depending on the terms of your agreement.
  • How do I prepare for a home inspection?
    To prepare for a home inspection, it's recommended to ensure access to all areas of the property, including the attic, basement, garage, and utility rooms. Clear any clutter or obstructions that may impede access. It's also helpful to gather documentation related to any recent repairs, renovations, or maintenance performed on the property. Finally, make sure all utilities, such as water, electricity, and gas, are turned on for the inspection.
  • How long does a home inspection take?
    The duration of a home inspection varies depending on the size, age, and condition of the property. Generally, a thorough inspection can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours. However, larger or more complex homes may require additional time. It's important to allocate sufficient time for the inspection to ensure a comprehensive assessment of the property.
  • Why do I need a home inspection?
    A home inspection is crucial when buying or selling a property. For buyers, it provides valuable information about the condition of the home, helping them make an informed decision and potentially negotiate repairs or adjustments to the purchase price. For sellers, a pre-listing inspection can identify any issues in advance, allowing them to address them or disclose them to potential buyers, thereby streamlining the selling process and reducing surprises.
