Once you’ve decided on the home you’d like to purchase, there are a few important steps to take before move-in day. One of the most important of these is hiring a local, trusted Twin Cities home inspection company and scheduling a home inspection. Not to be confused with an appraisal, the home inspection is when a professional home inspector goes over every part of the home, examining the condition of various areas like electrical, appliances, plumbing systems, the roof, foundation and much more.
Are you planning on attending your home inspection along with your home inspector? As a trusted home inspection company we always encourage home buyers and sellers to accompany their inspector. Why? For one, it’s interesting! You can learn a lot about your potential new home and really get to know it. But the main reason is so you can get a firsthand look at everything your home inspector is seeing. You get a chance to ask questions and learn even more about the house you are thinking of buying. Plus, you will get a chance to see where important components of the house are located, like shut off valves, electrical panels, access panels and more. This can help you in the event you need to turn off the water to install your refrigerator, turn the electric back on after your first big storm and much more. Your home inspection company can also help you determine what elements of the home might need repairs sooner than later; such as repaving the driveway.
You might also see some things you’d like the previous owners to cover or have fixed before settlement. While a home inspection company and home inspector cannot advise you on whether or not to go through with the purchase, the home inspector can help you make an informed and educated decision.
After the inspection is complete, you are provided with a detailed report from the home inspection company. A home inspector from our inspection company, AmeriSpec, will hand you an AmeriSpec™ Report. This is an easy-to-read document that tells you all you need to know about the home inspection and the condition of the house’s major areas.
