A standard home inspection usually occurs immediately after your offer is accepted by the seller and is a visual examination (by a professional home inspector who you will hire) of the physical structure and major interior systems of a residential building consisting of one to four dwelling units - kind of like a physical exam by a physician. However, a home inspection is not an appraisal, a building code inspection, a guarantee of any kind, and/or an insurance policy on the condition of the property. Home inspections are not intended to point out every small problem or any invisible or latent defect in a home. Most minor or cosmetic flaws, for example, should be apparent to the buyer without the aid of a
professional. The home inspection is meant to alert you to any previously unknown concerns that may affect your decision to purchase the home. The home inspection is something that we will be there for, with you, so we can help you evaluate the findings.
