​A home inspection is an important step in the home buying process. This inspection will help you better understand the condition of your soon-to-be home and allow you to know exactly what you are buying.

5 Ways to Get the Most Out of a Home Inspection

Below is a list of the 5 ways to get the most out of your home inspection:

1- Hire an experienced home inspector from a professional company.  

  • This is not the time to ask a handyman or a family member to look through the house.  Home Inspectors check hundreds of items, walk on roofs, crawl through attics, and look for safety hazards.

2- Attend the inspection.

  • This is often one of the biggest purchases anyone makes, and you should be there to ask the inspector questions and discuss any issues that are found

3- Read the entire report, not just the summary.

  • Important information about the house can be found throughout the report and not all of this information ends up in the summary section.

4- Get quotes from a licensed contractor for repairs

  • This needs to be done so you have realistic information and costs.

5- Work with your Realtor 

  • They will help determine what repairs are important or contractually required to have repaired prior to closing.

Know what you are buying and be confident in your home purchase..
