What is the purpose of a home inspection?
Answer: A pre-purchase home inspection will help a buyer make an educated decision on their home purchase. We do this by identifying major and minor deficiencies and showing buyers which updates and repairs will likely be needed in the future. By knowing ahead of time, you can determine if it fits within your budget.
What is the cost of a home inspection?
Answer: The cost of a pre-purchase home inspection varies. The cost is calculated based on location and square footage. Also, there will be an additional charge if the buyer would like to have the home tested for radon, mold or have a sewer camera inspection. Exact prices can be calculated on our website.
What happens if there are deficiencies or other issues discovered during a home inspection?
Answer: There is no such thing as a perfect house. Deficiencies and other issues will be identified during an inspection. It is important to understand this and come to the inspection with reasonable expectations. It is an inspector’s job to identify as much as possible about the property so the buyer can make an educated decision. A buyer may try to negotiate on repairs, but that is typically for major issues or safety hazards, not minor repairs, deferred maintenance and normal wear and tear.
