What does a home inspector check?
Home Inspection Services for Buyers
Normally, a buyer will request a final inspection as a contingency after the seller accepts an offer to purchase. As a buyer, you should require that the seller offer you the option to have the home evaluation by an inspection professional. To ensure that you are not stuck with property that is full of defects, ensure that your real estate agent includes the option for a professional inspector to evaluate the house prior to closing.
Home inspection for new construction is similar to that of an existing home, but there is more attention paid to certain topics such as the foundation, roof, electrical and plumbing. Things like insect infestations and leaky roofs haven't had time to develop yet.
As a seller of a property, you should get a home inspection before you put your home on the market. After the inspection, any major deficiencies should be mitigated before listing the property.
Home Inspection Troy follows the laws of the state of Michigan that require sellers to provide a disclosure to the buyer indicating issues on a variety of items including (but not limited to) the following: range, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, hood, disposal, electrical system, garage door opener, alarm system, central vacuum, attic fan, pool heater, microwave, trash compactor, ceiling fans, sauna, hot tub, washer, dryer, sprinkler system, plumbing, water softener, well, sump, septic tank, sump pump, city water or sewer, central air, heating system, furnace, humidifier, air filtration, solar heating system, fireplace, chimney or wood burning system.
In addition to these items, disclosures about the basement and crawlspace, insulation, roof leaks, history of infestations, environmental issues, flood concerns, encroachments, repairs done without permits and more. Because of this legal requirement to disclose these things, it is best to have the house inspected so the concerns can be identified (and in some instances eliminated or mitigated) prior to listing a home for sale with a real estate agent.
Home Inspection Cost
Home inspection prices typically range between $300 and $400. Inspectors generally determine a fee based upon how much time it will take them to perform the review. The biggest thing that affects the cost of a house inspection is the size of the dwelling. Larger homes generally have higher fees because they take longer and smaller homes have lower fees because they can be completed quicker.
Although fees can sometimes vary dramatically between home inspection companies, it may not be in your best interest to shop on price alone. Inspectors are not regulated by any national government agency, so there can be room for inexperienced inspectors or inadequate reviews. The best way to evaluate a house inspection company is to look at their certifications and experience in the industry. At Home Inspection Sterling Heights MI, we provide well experienced and certified home inspectors to every client.
