What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a visual examination of the condition of a house. This is usually, but not always, connected to the sale of a home.

Home inspections result in an Inspection Report outlining the condition of the home as well as any recommendations. Home inspections are completed in over 90% of real estate transactions.

A home inspection usually includes examination of the foundation, basement, roof, attic and structure. Systems for heating, water, electrical and plumbing are also examined. A Home Inspector looks at construction practices and notes any repairs or maintenance that might be required. Most importantly, a Home Inspector also identifies safety issues that need to be addressed.

Seller Home Inspections

Home sellers can benefit from a home inspection. Homes sell faster if they are inspected prior to being placed on the market. A home inspection will allow a seller to deal with items that can be ‘sticking points’ during the negotiation of a sale. Sellers can display a ‘Pre-Inspected Home’ sign on their lawn to show that they are organized and ready to sell.
