Frequently asked questions
Why Do I Need a Home Inspection?
If you’re planning to buy a house, a house inspection can help you avoid expensive and unexpected repairs which you may not have seen otherwise.
If you’re planning to sell your property, having your house inspected, and repaired (based on the inspection results) can help it achieve a better selling condition and higher selling price.
Also, if you have a house but don’t want to sell it, an inspection can help you avoid sudden expenses and/or accidents which may occur in the future.
What is a home inspection?
A home inspection is a visual examination of the structure and systems of a property, from the foundation to its roof, aiming to know its overall condition. The result can then be used for making decisions to sell, buy, or repair the house.
What does it include?
As a standard, the report will include the condition of a house’s HVAC system, interior plumbing and electrical systems, the attic, roof, and visible insulations, walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors, as well as the foundation, basement, and structural components.
Do I Have To Be There?
Being present during a house inspection is not necessary, but is highly recommended. This will give you the chance to observe the inspections and ask questions while they’re there regarding repairs or maintenance of the property.
What Happens After an Inspection?
A detailed report (with photographs) is generated to describe the inspection findings, and a summary is provided to share with the seller and their agent. The inspection results will determine the condition of the property. If you’re a buyer, you can consider the problems of a house before the purchase and can be used for making better decisions. Also, sellers can use this information to immediately perform necessary repairs and adjustments.
