Your home inspection will be an evaluation of the home’s condition by a trained professional home inspector. The home inspection will normally take 2-3 hours for the average size home. A home inspection does not eliminate all of the dangers of purchasing a home, but normally the home inspector will identify problems that the consumer would not. The home inspector is also able to identify the positive features of your new home. You are encouraged to be present during the inspection. Often, you can use the home inspection as an educational tool to learn more about how a home is constructed, proper operation and preventative maintenance measures.
