The Job Of A Home Inspector

Homeowners and homebuyers are always hiring the services of a home inspector. This is because houses can not be sold or bought without first being properly inspected by a professional. Home inspections have become an important part of the buying and selling of a house.

Homes need to undergo non-invasive inspections to determine their current condition. A home inspector is a certified professional who is authorized to formally examine a house prior to a sale or acquisition.

Many homeowners get confused at the difference between home inspectors and property appraisers . The difference between the two is simple: home inspectors examine structural conditions of the home, while appraisers determine the market value of the home. Inspections are carried out with full permission of homeowners, who are often the source of funding for the task. The examination is very thorough and covers every possible problem that could be found. An appraisal or estimated value does not come with the final report. Instead, the overall condition of the house is determined.

Home Inspectors Are Mandated To Check And Inspect All Parts Of The Home, With Proper Focus And Emphasis On:

  • the roof
  • heating system
  • plumbing
  • electrical connections
  • air-conditioning system
  • heating system
  • water heater
  • and overall structure

They are also trained to look at all other aspects and parts of buildings to find out if there is any improper building practice or neglected maintenance requirements.

Home inspections are supposed to identify and recommend any repairs, maintenance requirements, and adherence to fire and general safety.  They are expected to identify, trace, and determine every issue that may arise from the current condition of the home. Such inspections are required, as mentioned, prior to any sale or acquisition to make sure new homeowners will be satisfied with their investment. Every homeowner is advised to seek the services of a professional home inspector.

Experts suggest that home inspection services should not only be required when homes are to be bought or sold, but conducted regularly so that there could be a detection of any need for maintenance or repair. Homeowners’ attention should be called for any possible safety and security issues within the property. Aside from the basic skills and manual tools used in home inspections, most inspectors today are also utilizing specific and special home inspection software. Such computer programs specialize in detecting any possible problems at the home and run checklists so that nothing of any importance is skipped over.

After the inspection, a detailed and comprehensive report about the current condition of the house is provided. This report is very important as it should tell the homeowner of any need for urgent or future repair and any upgrade of systems. Once the report is submitted, it is up to the owner to act accordingly as to the findings and recommendations.  This is particularly important if the home is to be sold. Prospective buyers have the right to decline buying a home with unrepaired structures and defects in the interior and the exterior.
