Buying a home is one of the most important purchases you will make in your lifetime, so you will want to ensure that the home you want to buy is in good condition with no hidden surprises. A home inspection is an evaluation of your homes condition by a trained expert. During a home inspection, a qualified inspector takes an in-depth and impartial look at the property you plan to buy. The inspector will:
Evaluate the physical condition: the structure, construction and mechanical systems. Typically starting on your roof, examining exterior and then moving from basement to attic.
Identify items that should be repaired or replaced. Identify and estimate the remaining useful life of the major systems (such as electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning), equipment, structure and finishes. Visit our Home Owners Article site for more information on how to protect your home.
