Want to Know What You Are Paying for in a House Inspection?

What Will Be Included in the Services a Home Inspector Provides?

A home inspector service is a service that usually comes into a real estate transaction. Though some procedures of home inspections could overlap with those from an appraisal, a home inspection is normally requested by the potential buyer of the property and is done in the interest of the buyer, not for the mortgage lender. Usually what is included in the cost of a home inspection is a complete inspection of the property accompanied by a written report showing their findings.

A home inspection price will vary according to the geographical area and the company performing the inspection. Most of the time a home inspector representing the buyer will perform the inspection themselves. Bear in mind that some inspectors will be more thorough than others, and a license is needed to do this in several areas, and the details should be given to you.

Included in an inspection cost is a complete inspection of the property’s foundations, roof, structure, and all mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems. If the property came with a fireplace, an inspection of this is also included. An experienced and qualified inspector will be able to see if there are any defects, damage, or potential issues. When the inspection is done, written documentation of all the findings will be given to you.

Some real estate transactions solely depend upon the outcome of these home inspections. Meaning, a buyer make put forward an offer to buy a property only contingent on the inspection. If this inspection shows any problems, negotiations will start with regards to having the damage repaired and correcting the issues, or the contract will be null and void. Though an inspection can cost anywhere in the region of $200, the cost is well worth it, instead of finding out at a later state that you may incur expensive repair bills , plus paying for the mortgage.

5 out of 5 stars They were very clear and helpful as soon as they answered the phone. They scheduled us the very next day. When they came, they went right to work. They explain what they will do very clearly and answer all question thoughtfully. They a have a mobile mini-van that has everything in it, including a printer. You get your home inspection printed out immediately. Very competent people. They also take a credit card, which is nice because ALL our cash was wrapped up in our down payment. I would use them again for sure.

5 out of 5 stars They are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. All of them did a thorough inspection on the home we are planning to buy and then took the time to answer all of our questions on the spot. We left the inspection with a notebook complete with a summary of the inspection, color photos and detailed information on everything inspected. The best part though was their willingness to answer more question several days after the inspection. They truly offer superior customer service before, during and after the job is done.
