Home Inspection

Home Inspection

You find your dream home out on the market and you are ready to put down your deposit. But are you sure that home is a dream on the inside as well as on the outside? When looking into purchasing a new home, it’s important to get a home inspection done by a trusted inspector. Because it’s so important to make sure the home you are buying is in the right condition, the inspection is a part of the home buying process you don’t want to skip.

So what does an inspector look for when checking on a house? Typically, any signs of something going wrong or in poor condition. The inspector will schedule a time to look at the home and walk through. As well as checking on the age, size, and type of home, they will also check:

  • Heating and cooling system
  • Electrical and Plumbing
  • Walls, ceiling and flooring
  • Foundation and roofing
  • Drainage
  • Basement, if there is one

The inspection will usually cost somewhere between $300-$500 and will only cover moderate to severe issues. Most inspectors are not licensed by the state and so can only go over generic issues. Anything that needs the advice of a licensed professional will not be covered by the inspector. That being said, they can give an off-record recommendation if he or she feels that there is an underlying issue that needs to be addressed.

Your home inspection is just a part of the process of buying your new home but a very important one. Inspections not only protect you from future problems, they also provide peace of mind, which makes it even more worth the effort and time.
