A home inspection should not be confused with a home appraisal.
A home inspection is a professional, objective, visual examination of the condition of a home. Home buyers now entering the marketplace view home inspections as a way to gain valuable information about the biggest purchase of their lifetime. It helps them to determine whether there are any major defects or system inadequacies prior to finalizing the purchase.
The home buyer is typically encouraged to attend the inspection, so that they can see first hand the workings of the home. It also represents an excellent opportunity for the prospective buyer to ask questions about the home or to discuss potential changes.
Home inspections should also highlight the positive aspect of a home. In fact, any home inspector's observations or recommendations help dispel home purchaser anxieties, and provide useful repair suggestions.
The goal of the inspector is to provide the purchaser with a better understanding of the physical condition of the home in order to make a well-informed decision. After the inspection is complete, a report will be prepared for the home buyer.
A complete home inspection should cover all of the major systems of a house, ie: structure, exterior, roofing, electrical, heating, cooling, insulation, plumbing and interior.
