Congratulations, you did it! You have finally found your perfect home and, like most buyers, you'll want to have it inspected as soon as possible. The Home Inspection is your chance to find out what's really going on ‘under the hood’ before you fully commit to your important purchase. Over the course of a few hours, the Home Inspector will review critical home systems and probe every nook and cranny of the property's exterior and interior, including under the house and attic space where possible.
A proper Home Inspection educates you on the true condition and safety of the home that you are about to purchase. The bottom line is that you need to KNOW what you are buying.
Most home purchase contracts include an inspection contingency, which gives the buyer the right to back out of the deal if the inspection uncovers major previously-undisclosed flaws. Alternatively, the buyer can ask the seller to take care of necessary repairs. In some cases, the seller may negotiate a cash refund
