So you need to get your house inspected and not sure what to expect?
Let’s cover some basics :
What is a home inspection?
A home inspection is an opportunity for you to hire an expert to walk through your future home and prepare a report that outlines the home’s major components, their current condition, what needs immediate attention and what will require maintenance after you move in/out.
As a buyer, your home inspection report offers a deeper understanding of whether the home has been well-maintained or needs major repairs. If you’re not satisfied with the home’s current condition, you can request the seller address the repairs or give you a credit toward the cost of repairs at closing. A report can also help you prioritize repairs and improvements after you buy the home, and plan for upgrades.
Having your own home inspection checklist as a buyer can help you get the most value of your inspection report.
