Home Inspections: Three Reasons You Should Be There

So you are thinking about buying a new home and you have hired a home inspection service in Minneapolis. We are often asked if the potential buyer should be present for the home inspection and our recommendation is yes. Here are a few good reasons you should be present when the inspector from the home inspection service comes to scrutinize the house.

Reason 1: Straight from the horse’s mouth

Sure, we provide you with a detailed home inspection report when our inspector is finished, but there is nothing like hearing the information and details directly from the inspector. You can ask questions and address any concerns you might have about the potential problems the inspector notices. You can point out issues you are most concerned about to the inspector and get his or her expert knowledge firsthand. And if you cannot get to the home for the inspection, you can call the inspector and ask your questions.

Reason 2: No Need to Expect the Unexpected

If you are present when our home inspector is going through the inspection process, you will know what is in the report before you get it. That way, there are no unpleasant surprises when you first open the report to see what our home inspection service found.

Reason 3: Get an Impartial View

Our home inspectors are impartial and unbiased observers. We do not make money based on whether or not the home is sold, so there is no need for any bias in what we do. We know how exciting it can be when you find the home of your dreams, but you don’t want to buy it if there are a slew of expensive problems.
