When should I schedule a home inspection?
Typically, it is best to schedule your home inspection immediately after your offer has been accepted.
The inspector found some problems with the home. What should I do?
Don’t panic. Every home, old and new, is going to have problems of some sort. While some may be more obvious than others, not all problems require major repairs. A home inspection will help you identify any potential problems before they can become much larger and more expensive issues.
How quickly can I expect to receive my home inspection report?
A digital copy of your home inspection report is normally sent to you within 24 hours of inspection completion.
The home I’m buying looks like it is in perfect condition. Do I really need a home inspection?
Despite how it may look at first glance, no home is perfect. While a home may seem like it is in pristine condition, there are a variety of significant and potentially costly problems that could be lurking under the surface that you need to know about before closing. While you can forgo a home inspection, it is highly recommended that you do not.
If the house I’m buying is new construction, does it need to be inspected?
Yes! Even newly built homes can have their fair share of issues. Just because a home is a new construction does not mean that it is free of defects, it just means that they have yet to be discovered.
