A home inspection gives you peace of mind but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information quickly. This usually includes a written report, checklists, photographs, environmental reports, and what the inspector says during the inspection. All this, combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself, makes the experience even more overwhelming.
What should you do?
You are hiring the best Home Inspection Company in the area. Top2Bottom team is Professionally Trained, State Licensed and Nationally Certified to complete the inspection task at hand. You will be emailed a comprehensive computerized inspection report with digital photos that is emailed to you and your Realtor. Also, you will receive additional material that you will enjoy and assist you within the home buying process and future maintenance of the property.
Your inspection will consist of maintenance recommendations, life expectancies, and minor imperfections present in the home.
However, the issues that matter will fall into these four categories:
Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4).
Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that
sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Don't kill your deal over things that don't matter or are routine maintenance. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure, or nit-picky items.
