What to Expect When Inspecting

By Tosha Reinmiller, January 31, 2019

Home inspections, although time consuming, are an incredibly important part of your due diligence when entering the buying process. A home inspection assures full transparency for you, the buyer, when purchasing. The inspector you choose will help discover if the house has any hidden issues (foundation damage, leaky roofs) and will bring those to your attention so you can get estimates of the cost involved.

Before beginning the home inspection, it is helpful and important for both you and your inspector to read the seller’s property disclosure statement. The statement will point out any flaws the seller knows about that could negatively affect the home’s value or sale. The disclosure may highlight topics such as: Mold, Pests, Roof Leaks, Foundation Damage, etc.

Once you and your inspector have reviewed the seller’s disclosures, your inspector will perform his inspection and then produce a written report, including photos, that detail any issues with the property. From this report you can begin to request repairs from the sellers or discuss how to move forward.
