If you are going through the home buying process you are probably by now aware of the important role a home inspection plays in finding a sound property. If you have never had a home inspection before you may have many questions about what to expect from it, so, we are going to briefly answer three common home inspection related questions.
What is the purpose of a home inspection? Not everyone who buys a house can be expected to know what to look out for that would indicate the home is a bad investment. The home inspection is designed to find out the condition of the property and point out any areas you should be concerned about, which will enable you to make a wise choice of home.
Should I be present for the home inspection? Although it’s not essential for you to be present for the home inspection, it is a good idea. This is because the home inspector can help you get to know the property better and point out areas that may be concerning. While all of the inspector’s findings will be detailed in their report, you may find it easier to see it for yourself.
How long does a home inspection generally take? The size of the property, as well as its location, will play a role in the length of time it takes to complete the inspection, however, you can usually expect it to take about three hours. If a home inspection takes significantly less time than that to complete, it may not have been carried out as thoroughly as it should. In this case, you may want to have the property inspected again by someone else.
