A home inspection is a non-invasive visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation.
Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The home inspector will test/look at over 400 items during the home inspection. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested.
Upon completion a detailed home inspection report will be e-mailed to you.
Listing home inspections (pre-sale home inspections) are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home.
Sales are sometimes cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge.
Having the home inspection prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Home Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.
