FAQ on home inspection
1. What is the home inspection?
A home inspection is a relatively new less than 30 years but fast developing industry in North America, which includes an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from roof to foundation. When problems or symptoms of problems are found, the inspector may recommend further evaluation or remedies.
2. Do I need a home inspection?
Some body may say I know buildings very well why I need a home inspection. Yes, it is good for you to have that knowledge. But as long as you ask this question, no matter you are in the situation of home owner or seller, you do need the service because you started doubting on something. If you are a buyer, most chance you are under the stress and panic on searching your ideal property; negotiating with mortgage broker & other parties. You may be negligent of the details even though you fully know the function of buildings. A home inspection summarizes the condition of a property, points out the need for major repairs and identifies areas that may need attention in the near future. Buyers and sellers depend on an accurate home inspection to maximize their knowledge of the property in order to make intelligent decisions before executing an agreement for sale or purchase.
For homeowners, an inspection may be used to identify problems in the making and to learn about preventive measures, which might avoid costly future repairs. If you are planning to sell your home, an inspection prior to placing your home on the market provides a better understanding of conditions which may be discovered by the buyer’s inspector, and provides you an opportunity to make repairs that will make your home more desirable to potential buyers.
3. Can a house fail a home inspection?
No. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of your home. It is not an appraisal, which determines market value, or a municipal inspection, which verifies compliance to local codes and standards. A home inspector will not pass or fail a house. A home inspection describes the physical condition of a property and indicates what may need repair or replacement.
4. What if the report reveals problems?
No house is perfect. When we identify problems or issues, it does not indicate you should not buy the house. Our findings serve to educate you in advance of the purchase about the condition of the property. A seller may adjust the purchase price or contract terms if major problems are discovered during an inspection. If your budget is tight, or if you do not want to be involved in future repair work, this information will be extremely valuable.
5. What to expect after a home inspection?
In a word, a home inspection reduced rather than eliminated the risk on your investment. It should be clear that an inspection is not an insurance guarantee. It is a help when you are stressful and panic on the decision of your investment. It is a general review on the condition of the property and hopefully a list of the property care and maintenance.
