Why are home inspections important?
A home inspection is a broad examination of the state of a home.
Most people get a home inspection when they are making an offer on a house. This is one of the biggest purchases you might ever make, so it’s important to get an inspection.
A home inspection will save you money in the long run, and may even bring to light some factors that ultimately influence your decision on whether or not to buy a home.
Regardless of whether you think you have discovered your dream home, it is a home investigator’s obligation to point out its potential issues.
What’s Included in a Home Inspection?
It’s a home inspector’s job to validate the safety of a house, inside and out. Home inspectors will review the interior and exterior of the home, foundation, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems.
It’s absolutely necessary to get your home inspected before buying a home.
Without a proper home inspection, you might end up spending a fortune on surprise repairs, or worse – ending up stuck in a house with water or mold damage, foundation issues, or even asbestos and lead.
This is why it’s crucial to hire a certified home inspector to inspect your investment.
Home Inspection FAQs
How Long Does A Home Inspection Take?
Having a home inspection done typically takes about two or three hours. Of course it will take longer for larger homes.
What are the most common problems found during a home inspection?
A few of the most common issues found during home inspections include home wiring problems, roof issues such as leaks and worn-out shingles or tiles, inadequate insulation, plumbing problems, and defects in the heating and air conditioning systems. Poor grading and drainage of the yard is also quite common. Your home inspector will note the severity of these problems, to help you understand how serious they are.
Who Pays For The Home Inspection?
The buyer usually pays for the home inspection as part of due diligence. The buyer can negotiate with the seller to include the cost of the inspection in the sellers concessions.
What should I do before a home inspection?
Do your research and make sure you hire a certified, reputable inspector. Make sure that you schedule the inspection for a time when you can walk through the home with the inspector, so that they can tell you about their findings throughout the process, and you can ask them any questions you may have.
Is A Home Inspection Required For A Mortgage?
No, home inspections aren’t required for a loan but home appraisals are. However, it’s not a good idea to skip a home inspection. Spending a few hundred now could save you thousands in the long run.
What are the best questions to ask during a home inspection?
Any question that you have! Your home inspector is there to help you make sure you’re purchasing a high-quality home that’s free of major problems. A great home inspector will be used to answering any and all of your questions. That’s their job. However, avoid questions about cosmetic issues – you don’t want to waste time. Focus on asking questions about the most critical (expensive) aspects of the home, such as the wiring and plumbing, internal structure, major appliances, and other such systems.
Is A Home Inspection Part Of Closing Costs?
Yes, a home inspection is technically part of closing costs. However, the cost of the home inspection is due on the day it’s done, not at closing.
