Even the most experienced homeowner lacks the expertise of a professional inspector. A licensed inspector is familiar with the details of home construction, proper installation, maintenance and home safety. They know how the property’s systems and components are intended to function, and also how they fail.
Aditionally, most buyers find it difficult to remain objective about a property they want, which may effect their judgment. It is best to obtain an impartial opinion.
Fees are based on the type of property inspected and its price. Condominium, “unit only” inspections begin at $295. Single family homes begin at $485.
Don’t allow the cost of the inspection to deter you in getting an inspection, or to influence the company you use. Make sure you have a sense of security in your choice, and that you feel all your questions will be answered.
A home inspection report will contain observations about the home’s heating system, central air (if applicable, and temperature permits), interior plumbing and the electrical system. The inspector will also evaluate the roof, attic, and visible insulation. Walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors will be noted. As will the foundation and structural components.
