In general, buyers are entitled to conduct a series of inspections on the property that they are about to purchase and at HomeSmart, we recommend that, when possible, you choose a home inspector that is certified by a trade association.
Some of the items typically investigated during an inspection are: appliances, plumbing, A/C, heating, electrical, structure, foundation, roof and attic. If there are areas of concern, you can ask your inspector to address concerns regarding the results of the inspection. If you are obtaining a loan, your Lender may also require specific inspections.
Additional inspections that you may want to consider are: a survey to determine where property lines are located, and a claims report, which gives Buyers the past insurance claim history on the property (a factor which can affect the cost of you homeowner’s insurance).
