Important things to remember about Home Inspections


• We are going in looking for defects. So don’t have anxiety about finding several issues with the home, for example pre-80’s home it is standard to find no GFI (ground fault interrupt) outlets in the home, even new home have issues. If we were putting together a report of positives about the home most of the time the list would be longer. Your Inspection Doctor home inspector will let you know if issues need further evaluation.

• The inspection is not a “Pass or Fail”. The home inspection gives you information you as a home buyer need to decide whether to buy the home as is or negotiate with the seller to either fix the issues, fix some of the issues and reduce the price or issue a repair credit at closing for you to get the repairs done, (there are many ways to negotiate this).

• Remember you are hiring a home inspector to assess the home on the day of the inspection. A home inspection is not an insurance policy of warranty of future issues that may arise days or months down the road.

• You are not a home inspector. Home inspection is best left to professionals that do this day in and day out. Inspection doctor has the expertise to identify electrical, plumbing, structure and other issues. The combination of emotion and other factors involved in buying a home, its easy to see why potential buyer are not the ones who should be doing the inspecting….That being said, it’s a good ides to accompany your inspector ask plenty of questions and see up close the good and not-so good for yourself as well.
