What Does A Home Inspector Do, And How Does An Inspection Figure In The Purchase Of A Home?
As we show you in this video, an inspector checks the safety of your potential new home.
Home Inspectors focus especially on the structure, construction and mechanical systems of the house and will make you aware of only repairs that are needed.
The Inspector does not evaluate whether or not you're getting good value for your money.
Generally, an inspector checks:
Insulation and ventilation
Heating and AC system
Water source and quality
The potential presence of pests
The foundation, doors, windows, ceilings, walls, floors, and roof
Be sure to hire a home inspector that is qualified and experienced. It's a good idea to have an inspection before you sign a written offer since once the deal is closed you've bought the house as-is.
