Tips from a Home Inspector

You just walked through a brand new listing, and are now a firm believer in love at first sight. From the moment you walked through the front door, you knew it had to be yours. The walk-in closet, open concept plan, and luxurious backyard were exactly what you’ve been dreaming of and may have been enough to make you overlook the leaking faucet in the bathroom and strange smell coming from the basement.

Sometimes when viewing a home, it is easy to let staging get the best of us. We get so caught up in the pretty wrapping that we forget to look inside to see what makes the home tick.

It is a classic example of never judging a book by its cover, and can be easily solved with a home inspection. When buyers put in an offer, there is the option to insert a home inspection clause. When you hire a professional home inspector, you can save yourself time, stress, and avoid potential financial risk by proactively identifying any issues within the inner workings of the home. The home inspector will do a visual inspection of the structure and components of the home to ensure everything is performing correctly and is in safe working condition. The home inspector will pay special attention to the following areas of the home:

  • Roof
  • Ventilation
  • Fireplace
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Appliances
  • Exterior
  • HVAC
  • Structure
