What to Expect from a Home Inspection

After you make an offer and it’s accepted, your next task is to have the home inspected prior to closing. Agents often recommend you make your offer contingent upon a clean home inspection. This contingency allows you to renegotiate the price you offered for the home or ask the seller to address necessary repairs. Your agent can advise you on the best course of action once the report is filed.

How to Choose an Inspector

Your agent will most likely have a short list of inspectors to recommend. HGTV suggests you consider the following five areas when choosing your preferred home inspector:

1. Qualifications 

Find out what’s included in your inspection and if the age or location of your home may warrant specific certifications or specialties.

2. Sample Reports 

Ask for a sample inspection report so you can review how thoroughly they’ll be inspecting your dream home. In most cases, the more detailed the report,
the better.

3. References 

Do your homework. Ask for phone numbers and names of past clients who you can call for references.

4. Memberships 

Not all inspectors belong to a national or state association of home inspectors, and membership in one of these groups is not be the only way to evaluate your choice. Membership in one of these organizations does, however, often mean continued education and training are required of the inspector.

5. Errors and Omission Insurance 

Find out about the liability of the inspector or inspection company once the inspection is over. The inspector is only human, after all, and it is possible they might miss something they should see.
