Q: Why do I need a home inspection?
A: Whether you’re a buyer or a seller, a home inspection provides invaluable details about the condition of a home. It’s important for homeowners to learn as much as they can about a property, so they can make any necessary repairs if they have been reported. Home inspectors can also suggest preventative measures to help you avoid costly future repairs.
Q: Do I have to attend the home inspection?
A: It’s a good idea to attend the home inspection because any questions you may have can be answered. It is important for sellers to keep in mind the inspector has not been retained to point out all of the good aspects of the home, and they should not feel offended when the inspector points out a defect or potential defects.
Q: How long does a home inspection take?
A: A typical inspection of a property less than 2,000 square feet lasts approximately two and a half hours.
