At Liberty Home Inspectors, we understand that many people may have questions about the home inspection process. Our goal is to answer some of the most common. If you don’t see your question answered here, then consider giving us a call. We’d be happy to answer your question for you.
A home inspection is an examination of the condition of a home. It takes a look at various different aspects of a building—including the HVAC system, foundation, walls, doors, and more—in order to make sure that the building is still in good condition.
A home inspection is beneficial because it can help you find problems with the building before buying or selling it. Many problems are not obvious without the keen eye of a professional; working with a professional home inspector can give you peace of mind, as they can accurately pinpoint whether or not there are any issues. If you’re a seller, this gives you the opportunity to fix them; if you’re a buyer, this can protect you from making a poor purchasing decision.
A home inspector takes a look at a home to provide you with a list of any potential problems with the building. An appraiser, on the other, takes a look at different aspects of the building—including the condition of the home, location, and unique features—in order to provide you with an accurate estimation of its value.
Generally speaking, you’ll want to ask your home inspector what licenses and certifications they have, how long they’ve been in the business, and how they plan to tackle your home inspection. It can also be beneficial to look up reviews from previous customers, as well as to ask for a sample report.
Ultimately, this depends on a number of factors, including the size of the home, the type of inspection, and where the home is located. Generally, home inspections are between $300 and $500, but it’s a good idea to get in touch with your inspector and get an estimate beforehand.
Length of time for a home inspection will also vary, depending on the size of the home, the complexity of the systems, and what kind of inspection you’re looking for. Generally speaking, however, you can expect an inspection to take between two and four hours.
Generally speaking, your home inspector will look over the foundation, the roof, and the rest of the home, gradually making their way through the property and taking note of any potential issues. After the inspection is complete, they’ll compile a report of their findings. They’ll then provide you with this report, which will give you an idea of what potential issues a home has.
Generally speaking, the home inspection will be schedule immediately after the seller accepts the buyer’s offer.
It can be beneficial, since it gives you the chance to ask questions. That said, it’s not required, and you can leave to do other things if you prefer.
No; the home inspector will make you aware of any potential defects, but they cannot actually repair them.
If you’re the seller, then you have the opportunity to fix these problems before putting your house on the market—which, in turn, means you’ll like get a better price for it. If you’re the buyer, then you can use this to negotiate a lower price, negotiate for repairs, or back out of the deal altogether.
