Buying Your Home - Home Inspections 

What's a home inspection? 
A home inspection is when a paid professional inspector -- often a contractor or an engineer -- inspects the home, searching for defects or other problems that might plague the owner later on. They usually represent the buyer and are often paid by the buyer. The inspection usually takes place after a purchase contract between buyer and seller has been signed. 

**Note**- A Home Appraisal is different and is covered on a separate page

Do I need a home inspection?
Yes. Buying a home "as is" is a risky proposition. Major repairs on homes can amount to thousands of dollars. Plumbing, electrical and roof problems represent significant and complex systems that are expensive to fix. We are not attorneys, accountants, surveyors, engineers, builders, electricians, plumbers, termite inspectors, ext. but we can assist you in locating a local professional that will professionally address your concerns.

How do I find a home inspector?
A local Realtor is a great resource in identifying local professionals, but keeping inspectors independent from the agent may be a good idea. You can ask for referrals from friends. Ask for their credentials, such as a contractor's license, insurance, or an engineering certificate and always check their references.

The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) has developed formal inspection guidelines and a professional code of ethics for its members. Membership to ASHI is not automatic; proven field experience and technical knowledge of structures and their various systems and appliances are a prerequisite. 

One can usually find an inspector by inquiring at Above Realty, using a search engine, using a phone book or sometimes searching social media and asking for recommendations. 

Rates for the service vary greatly. Many inspectors charge between $200-$500, but costs go up with the scope of the inspection.
