Frequently Asked Questions

About Home Inspections

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is an objective examination of the visibly accessible components of a house. An inspection is not a guarantee or a warranty (we did not build the house!), but it is an opportunity to identify any major problems that exist that could affect your decision to buy the home.

What is my role during the home inspection?

We strongly recommend that you attend the entire home inspection. This is where the value is!

Our clients better understand the concerns and recommendations we have about a house by seeing them first hand. Your role is simply to receive a full education about the house you may call home and to ask any questions that you may have.

By the end of the inspection you will know the house better than the existing home owner.

How long will the home inspection take?

This depends on the age and size of the house. It is a short amount of time to give up to spend learning about your future house.

What if you fail the house?

A home inspector should NOT pass or fail a house. We simply prepare a detailed report of our findings so that you can be informed about whether you wish to buy a home based on any immediate and/or future improvements that may be needed. If you get an unfavorable report, don’t sweat it, stop…breathe. This is why we are here, this is an opportunity to talk to your agent about the concerns.
