A home inspection helps you make a more informed decision about the home you’re considering buying.
A home inspector can identify potential issues, plus give you a better idea of the ongoing maintenance the property will require.
When you’re buying a house, a thorough home inspection can save you thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs.
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.
