Purchasing a home is a momentous occasion and could probably be the largest investment you’ll ever make. One of the important decisions you’ll make during this process is to have the home inspected by a Certified Professional Inspector.
What is a Residential Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a visual examination of the condition of the home at that point in time at which it was inspected. It is not a guarantee of future condition, or the life-span of the components of the home. An inspection will give you a clear and honest appraisal of the home's condition at the time of inspection. Whether there are repairs to be made, or the home is in perfect condition, a home inspection is meant to provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing all the facts.
Home Inspection and the Closing Process
When performed by a reputable, certified inspector, a residential home inspection allows you to buy with confidence and speed the closing process as well. The inspection report itself will point out any defects or deficiencies in the home, giving you and idea of possible repair costs or maintenance needs for your new home. A good home inspection report will have all the pertinent narrative, color pictures and give you the knowledge you need to make an informed decision about your pending real estate purchase.
