Buying a home is typically the biggest investment you will ever make. A home inspection is a visual examination of the home’s major structure, systems, and components that are visible and safely accessible and can give you piece of mind about the home. An inspector should be able to discover and document defects that may or may not be obvious to you as a prospective buyer. Such defects can range from simple replacements or repairs to severe damage or safety and health concerns.
If at all possible, it is recommended to attend part or all of the home inspection. This is a valuable educational opportunity to see the home through the eyes of an expert. A home inspection can take anywhere from 2-5 hours depending on the size and age of the home.
One benefit of being present during a home inspection is the opportunity to hear explanations directly from the inspector’s mouth. Once the inspection is completed, you will receive a comprehensive report suggesting any improvements or repairs deemed necessary to bring the home up to current standards. But sometimes, these reports can make issues seem more significant than they actually are. However, if a buyer is present and talks to the inspector, the inspector can ease some of their concerns.
