What is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is defined as a “limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home”. Home inspections are usually conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares a written report of findings and delivers it to the client. The client then utilizes the report to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection, but does not warrant the efficiency, or life expectancy, of the home, its systems and/or components.
When are Home Inspections Warranted?
The number one reason why people hire inspectors is to ascertain a property’s internal and external condition during a pending sale. Prospective buyers hire a home inspector as part of their due diligence; if problems arise, the buyers will have the opportunity to request repairs and/or credits from the seller, or if the problems are serious, the buyers can terminate the sale.
But property inspections are ideal most any time! Reason being, property owners can then have a clear idea as to the current state of their property and can address apparent problems and/or concerns before they turn into larger problems. The peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is safe and structurally sound is priceless. Additionally, if an owner is planning to sell in the near future, having the property inspected prior so they can fix or remedy any existing problems prior to enlisting it to the market can eliminate potential obstacles to a quick sale.
