The most common home inspection performed in the industry is the pre-purchase home inspection. Once an offer is made on the property, the buyer normally takes the responsibility for hiring a professional home inspector for verification of the condition of the property. The home inspection is bought and paid for by the buyer. Fees for a home inspection vary and are based on the size, age and specific characteristics of each individual property. Items found during the inspection may be used in negotiating the selling price of the home. I strongly recommend the buyer attend the inspection. This will allow you to ask questions and to get familiar with the components of the home. The inspection process will typically take 2-4 hours depending on the size and condition of the home.
When you’re selling your home you want to make it as attractive to your prospective buyer’s as possible. A pre-listing home inspection allows the seller to be proactive and learn about the current condition of their home. An inspection also offers the opportunity to make the necessary repairs before the first potential buyer walks thru the door. Remember, the first impression is a lasting impression.
Home inspections are also an investment for owners of rental property. A home inspection is documentation of the homes condition before your client moves and after they vacate the property.
