3 Questions You Should Ask Your Home Inspector

For most homebuyers, the purchase of their home is one of the biggest financial decisions they will
make, and you want that decision to be backed by data and information to give you peace of mind.
When you are choosing a home inspector, there are a few very important questions you will want to
address before making your decision to hire that specific home inspector.

Besides the obvious:

  • Do you have the proper experience, insurance, credentials, etc.?
  • What will the home inspection cost?
  • How long will it take?

Here are three important questions to ask your home inspector before they do the inspection:

  1. What does your home inspection cover? Inspections initiated by the home seller are most
    likely going to be done prior to listing the home this is a great way to be open and fair about the home’s condition and value and can be a great asset for your home appraisal. Also increasing the home’s chances at a faster sale. If the inspection is initiated by the home buyer, the home inspection should cover all of the following Exterior, Roof, Structural Components and Outbuildings, Interior, Ventilation and Insulation, Heating and Air Conditioning Systems, Electrical System, and Plumbing System.
  2. What type of home inspection report will I get when you’re finished? Professional home inspectors will provide a number of different types of reports, but you should never accept a verbal report. You’ll want a fully documented, written report as a record of the home inspector’s findings.
  3. Will I be able to attend the home inspection? Now remember this is going to be your potential new home and you should take full advantage of this educational opportunity and a real chance for you to dig around and understand the home you are about to buy before you move in. You should be 100% suspicious of any home inspector who hesitated to have you along on the inspection.
