Inspecting your own potential house is not recommended. Home inspectors are specially trained to look for things you may miss. Unless you are a home inspector yourself, seek out a professional. Some states or financial lenders require a licensed inspector to complete the inspection.
How much does it cost?
The cost of a home inspection usually comes out of pocket for the potential home buyer. Costs can vary, depending on the size of the home and the inspection services you are needing. Remember you get what you pay for and paying for a qualified, inspector that will bring experience and knowledge is very important.
How long will the inspection take?
Knowing the length of time for an inspection is important because you usually have to arrange a time with the realtor and the current owner for the inspection of the house. Depending on the size of the house and the inspection services needed, inspections can take hours.
Am I required to be at the inspection?
No. When making an appointment please let the office know that you will not be able to be at the inspection.
