Inspections are one of the most important elements of any home sale. Here are the important aspects of an inspection you need to be aware of whether you’re buying or selling a home.
Inspections are an extremely important part of purchasing a home.
Home inspectors are licensed in North Carolina and South Carolina. They’ll look at everything in the home from the slab, crawlspace, and foundation all the way up to the roof line. They check all major systems like your water heater, your roof, heating and cooling systems, electrical, and plumbing. They’ll also examine structural items like windows and doors.
As they finish, they’ll prepare a report that’s very picture-intensive and details about every component of the home. Their job is to say whether something functions properly or not.
They might advise you to consult other experts like a roofer, plumber, HVAC specialist, or structural engineer to get a better idea of what it would cost to repair anything they found issues with in the home.
As you think about buying a home or selling your current house, the inspector is integral in making sure you have the best investment and that you’ll be able to negotiate repairs. You are also free to choose any inspector you’d like.
