Buying a home … The process can be stressful. A home inspection gives you peace of mind but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This usually includes a written report, checklists, photographs, environmental reports, and what the inspector himself 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?
Relax … You are about to hire the best Home Inspection Company in the area. We are Professionally Trained, State Licensed, and Nationally Certified to complete the inspection task. You will be emailed (print copies can be mailed upon request only) a state-of-the-art computerized inspection report with color digital photos emailed to you and your Realtor. Also, you will receive many other materials that you will enjoy and will assist you within the home buying process and future maintenance of the property.
Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies, and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that matter will fall into four categories:
An example of this would be a structural failure.
Things lead to significant defects. A small roof-flashing leak, for example.
Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home.
Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel.
Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected
inexpensively 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 listed on the seller's disclosure, or nit-picky items.
