How DOES a Home Inspection Work?

Like going to the doctor, when you sell a home, the "doctor" (inspector) will come for the Buyers health evaluation of the home.

In this blog, we will look at 3 general points included in a home inspection.

1. Time needed to complete an inspection

Most home inspections happen after an offer has been made and accepted by a Seller and typically take anywhere from one to three hours although, three hours would be extensive. Note a Seller can have an inspection completed prior to listing the home.

2. Some areas included in the inspection are:

    Possible plumbing concerns - an example of which could be a hot water heater outside of local and state code requirements.

    Noticeable, mortar only, cracks in brick mortar

    Appliances, thermostats or plumbing fixtures not operating properly sold sign

3. Report

    When the inspection is completed, typically an electronic report is generated for the Buyer and emailed to the    Buyer's realtor. The Buyer's realtor will then share the report with the Seller's realtor.
