home inspectionOnce you’ve made an offer on a house, you’ll want to schedule a professional home inspection. A home inspection is a visual evaluation of the house that identifies any problems or potential problems that could end up being costly to repair or replace. Basically, a home inspection helps protect you from buying damaged goods. The following are a few tips for ensuring a successful home inspection:

  • Hire a reputable professional – Not all home inspectors are legitimate. Make sure that when you look for a professional home inspector that they are fully licensed to perform inspections within the state. You should be able to look up customer reviews as well. You should also find out how long they have been working as an inspector and what they did before. It’s usually a good sign if they used to be a contractor or builder.
  • Be present at the inspection – Make sure that you go through the home inspection with the inspector. This will allow the inspector to explain what issues they are looking for, what kind of issues they’ve found and how problematic those issues are. While all of this will be included in the final report, it will be easier to understand if you’re told in person. Being there will also allow you to ask questions on the spot.
  • Use your seller’s disclosure statement – Sellers are required to disclose everything that they know about the house. Provide the inspector with this statement. They’ll be able to look at known issues to see how bad they really are and to determine if there are other related problems.

These are just a few tips that you should keep in mind when scheduling a professional home inspection.
