Frequently Asked Questions:

When Buying a Home there are many questions that you will have. Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions as it relates to the Home Inspection Process. 

What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is an independent visual examination of the structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation. On average, a single-family home inspection usually takes 2-4 hours to complete, though this is heavily dependent on the of the size and condition of the home. After the inspection process, our inspector will provide a digital report that covers their findings, complete with pictures, opinions and recommendations.

What does a Home Inspection include?

The standard home inspector's report will cover the condition of the home's heating system; central air conditioning system; interior plumbing system; electrical system; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; and the foundation, basement and structural components. There are additional inspections which can be completed at the clients request, such as Radon Testing, Sewer Scope, Pest Inspection, Air Quality and Water Sampling.

Why do homebuyers need a Home Inspection?

Buying a home could be the largest single investment the homebuyer will ever make. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, homebuyers should strive to learn as much as they can about the house before they buy it. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. Through the home inspection process, homebuyers will have a better understanding about their prospective house, which will allow them to make decisions with confidence. If a homeowner is planning to sell their home, a home inspection can give them the opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.

What does a Home Inspection Cost?

While the average home inspection costs for a single-family home will generally run $300 to $500, just keep in mind that the exact price will depend on the size, age, location and additional inspections (radon testing, pest, water sampling and sewer line scope).
