Home Inspection Purpose
The purpose of a home inspection is to avoid a costly mistake by purchasing a property in need of major repairs. Don’t purchase a property without a home inspection.
In general, a home inspection is an evaluation of the visible and accessible systems and components of a home and is intended to give the client an understanding of the condition of the home on the day it is inspected, taking into consideration normal wear and tear.
A home inspection is not an appraisal of the property’s value, nor does it include the cost of repairs. It does not guarantee that the home complies with building codes or protect you in the event an item inspected fails in the future.
It is recommended that a home inspection be completed for new construction as well as re-sales. A pre-sale inspection is also a sensible investment for anyone considering selling a home.
Once the inspection is completed a detailed report is provided outlining the condition of the property, especially whether any items are so defective as to impair function or warrant further investigation by a specialist.
For the Home Buyer
Home inspections have proven to be a positive and educational experience for prospective home buyers. An impartial inspection by a NC Licensed Home Inspector will provide the buyer with the information needed to make an informed decision on the purchase of a home.
The inspection will provide you with an in-depth understanding of your new home and its components and systems as well as the necessary maintenance and information you will need to protect your investment.
For the Property Seller
A home inspection is a great marketing tool and provides you with a competitive advantage over other properties on the market – allowing you to sell your home faster for the highest possible price.
It offers full disclosure up front and gives prospective buyers added peace of mind. It will also allow you to make any necessary repairs in advance. Pre-sale inspections are a wise investment for all homeowners.
