What is a Home Inspection?


A home inspection is a professional, objective, visual examination of the condition of a home. Home sellers wanting to get an advantage on selling their home,  view inspections as a way to gain valuable information about their home and its condition, prior to placing it on the market.   It helps them to determine whether there are any major defects or system inadequacies, prior to having the home listed.  This gives them adequate time to select how and who they choose to repair any deficiencies found, without being pressured by time constraints or legal documents.

The inspection can usually be arranged immediately to within a day or so. The home seller is encouraged to attend the inspection, so that they can see first hand the workings of the home. It also represents an excellent opportunity for the seller to ask questions about the home or to discuss potential deficiencies.

Home inspections should also highlight the positive aspects of a home.  In fact, many of the home inspector's observations or recommendations can be used to help to dispel home purchaser anxieties, and provide useful repair suggestions.


My inspection service is also one of education. My goal is to provide the client with a better understanding of the physical condition of the home in order that the seller can make a well-informed decision as to what may or may not need repair.  It is also the inspector's role to keep his findings in perspective for the buyer. After the inspection is completed, a written report will be prepared for the seller, documenting the results of the inspection, along with suggested repairs and safety hazards evident in the home.

The home inspection should not be confused with an appraisal, a municipal code inspection, an environmental audit, or a home owner's warranty.

A complete home inspection will cover all of the major systems of a house, including structure, exterior, roofing, electrical, heating, cooling, insulation, plumbing and interior.
