Before purchasing a home, it’s important that you have it inspected by a certified home inspector. In your initial walk-through of the home, you may find that you like what you see, but a home inspector who knows what they’re doing will check more thoroughly in areas that you may have overlooked.
Knowing the property’s condition is key when it comes to making a wise decision about purchasing a home. A home inspection is designed to inform you of the condition of the property, life expectancy of its major components, along with the maintenance and repairs that may be needed (or can be expected) now or later.
Four main components
Home inspectors will thoroughly inspect the four main components of the home: the roof, electric, plumbing, and heating/air conditioning. A home inspection will also include the grounds, the foundation, the attic, walls, floors, doors, windows, and the exterior structure of the home. A home inspection can take two to three hours depending upon the size of the home, the condition, and its age.
A home inspector will document any potential defects of the home with well-crafted notes and photographs of the condition of the property that you’re thinking about buying. It’s also somewhat important for you, as the potential homeowner, to be present during at least part of the home inspection, to ask questions and receive information about the home as the inspection happens.
