What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is 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 and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained 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 guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components.

Why should you consider a home inspection?

Ensure the home you buy is a good investment

A home inspection gives you valuable information to make an informed decision on your purchase.  It gives you a detailed summary of the condition of the systems and components of the home.

Understand maintenance costs before purchase

Before a home purchase, it is wise to understand the history of monthly costs for utilities.  Your home inspector will also report on the maintenance condition of the home, giving insights into maintenance history and needed maintenance and repairs.

A home is likely the biggest purchase you will make

For most people, a home is the single largest purchase they make. A good home inspection gives the purchaser added confidence in the decision process.


Know what your are buying

In the end the most important reason to have a home inspection before you buy is to really know what you’re buying. Research your potential home like you would any other major purchase. The more you know, the fewer surprises there will be down the road.
