What to Expect From Your Inspection
Here is what you can expect from your home inspection:
- The inspector will arrive at the home at a scheduled time and introduce themselves to you.
- The inspector will then begin their inspection, which will typically take a few hours, depending on the size, age, and condition of the home.
- During the inspection, the inspector will use a variety of tools and equipment to examine the home, including a flashlight, ladder, moisture meter, and electrical tester.
- The inspector will take photos of any defects or potential problems that they find.
- Once the inspection is complete, the inspector will review their findings with you and answer any questions you may have.
- You will also receive a copy of the inspector’s report, which will include their findings and recommendations. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report.
It is important to carefully review the inspection report and discuss it with your real estate agent and/or attorney. The inspection report can help you make an informed decision about whether or not to purchase the home.
Here are some additional tips for getting the most out of your home inspection:
- Be present for the inspection so that you can ask questions and learn more about the home.
- Provide the inspector with access to all areas of the home, including the attic, basement, and crawlspace.
- If you have any concerns about the home, be sure to bring them up with the inspector.
- Ask the inspector for recommendations for qualified contractors who can repair any defects that are found.
By following these tips, you can ensure that your home inspection is a positive experience that helps you to make a wise investment.
