What is included in a Home Inspections Report?

Check out your home inspection carefully

When you are looking through suitable properties as a homebuyer, you need to be certain the investment choice you are about to make is a wise one. The only way you can get a clear picture of the home you want to purchase is to request a home inspection. Inspections offer a clear and concise report that you can read over and evaluate.
When an inspector reviews a property, they will be looking out for any signs of structural damage. They will also be checking the age and functioning of major operating systems connected with the structure. Once the review is completed, the inspector leaves a written report with digital photos included for the client to refer to and use as a guide.

A completed report should include information about…

  • The foundation condition
  • The roof condition
  • Accurate evaluation of heating and cooling systems
  • Accurate details about the electrical wiring
  • Any structural issues of significance

When the inspector is doing the walkthrough part of his or her service, it would be good for you, as the buyer, to attend for the few hours it takes. Taking the time to attend a walkthrough allows you to learn the ins and outs of the property, and lets you ask any questions you may need answers to.

Home inspections can vary in cost. This comes down to a few factors like age of the property, size of the property, location, and  specialist services rendered, like water quality inspection or termite inspection.

The good thing about a home inspection is that there is no place for any issues to be hidden. An inspection report can give you negotiating power and assurance that there are not issue the seller has not disclosed. A home inspection is a wise choice of service for anyone looking to buy a home.
