A home inspection can make or break a home purchase. This procedure is a thorough evaluation of the
home and condition by a professional and is typically required by lenders to
obtain a mortgage.An inspection provides valuable information
about the home to the buyer and allows the buyer to cancel the deal if a major
problem is discovered.
Inspect the home you are interested in yourself before moving
forward in the buying process. This will eliminate houses that have significant
problems.A personal inspection will
help you identify issues to mention to the professional inspector if you decide
to purchase the home.Look at the roof,
condition of the porch, the appearance of the paint or siding, and the gutter
systems on the exterior.Check windows
and ceilings for signs of leaking water inside the house.Listen for noises in plumbing or any electrical
issues in the home, such as exposed wiring and lighting problems.If the heating or cooling system is active
when you are there, take note of the effects on the temperature in the
house.Check basements for signs of
water damage and flooding.
Hire an experienced and professional inspector.Ask the inspector how long he/she has been
performing inspections, if you will receive a detailed written report and what
type of certifications he/she has.Find
out what locations will be covered in the home inspection and how long the
process will take.Standard times for
single-family home inspections are at least two to three hours, depending on
the size of the home
Follow the inspector during the inspection and ask any
questions you have.Take notes during
the walk-through, as the inspector will also point out any possible future
problems to you.All of the areas you
looked at in your personal inspection should be reviewed by the professional
inspector.He/she will also check the
heating and cooling systems for leaks and signs of damage, test outlets and
electrical systems, and evaluate the firmness and level of the floors in the
home.Any additional features, such as
an attic, will be included in the inspection.
Professional home inspections do not necessarily include
additional tests, such as checking for lead paint, radon gas, pest infestations
and house mold.The inspector will
recommend these types of specialized tests if he believes one of these issues
exists in the home or is a known problem in the neighborhood.
