What Can You Expect From a Home Inspection?
January 25, 2017 | Jason DeLong
There are a few things you can expect from a home inspection. Contrary to popular belief, it covers more than just the basics.
When getting a home inspection done, what aspects of the home can you expect it to cover?
Many people think home inspections only cover the basics, but that’s not true. A home inspection is actually a very thorough process that is designed to provide a report card for your home.
The home inspector is going to find everything he or she can during the two- or three-hour time frame allotted for the inspection. They might not find everything, but they will look through all your systems, including your HVAC, electrical systems, plumbing system, plumbing fixtures, and appliances.
It’s important to note that not everything found in the inspection is going to be covered by the contract, but it will give you a good list to work with. Just like when buying a used car, when buying a used home, you’ll want to have that inspection so you know exactly what you’re getting into.
If you need an inspection, we have a list of a couple great inspectors that we work with. Also, if you are thinking about buying or selling a home or have any other questions, feel free to give us a call or shoot us an email. We’re always happy to help.
