Buyer’s Home Inspections

This inspection is a non-invasive evaluation of a home’s visible and readily accessible components. We encourage the prospective homebuyer to attend the inspection for a closer look at the property, making it easier to understand how the various components function and how defective materials may affect the safety and structural soundness of the home. After the inspection is over, a full report of our findings will be delivered within the following 24 hours. We’re available after the inspection to answer any additional questions the customer may have.

People who are looking to buy a new home are the ones that would be interested in a Buyer’s Home Inspection.

This is one of the most important kinds of inspection to get when making the decision of whether to purchase a home or not. A buyer’s inspection will be an overview of all of the major components of the home, and is used to make sure that the home buyers are interested in is in good condition.

A buyer’s home inspection looks at the major components and systems of a home.

These include:

  • Electrical systems
  • HVAC
  • The foundation of the home
  • Roof
  • Chimney & fireplace
  • Plumbing systems
  • Furnace
  • Structural soundness

A buyer’s home inspection is important mostly for the buyer of the home. Whether you – as the buyer – decides to get a home inspection or not, does not affect the seller, and in fact it could help them.

We at Home Detective Home Inspections frequently find problems with homes that the seller uses to decide whether they want to purchase a home or not.

A buyer’s home inspection is for one thing – and that it so help the buyer make an informed decision when deciding to go through with the purchase of a home or not. Without an inspection, they cannot know if the home they are buying has a foundation that is shifting and will need to be fixed in two years. It would be hard to tell if the furnace is in good condition and will last for 10 years, or if it will need to be replaced that same year.

Home inspections are to give the buyer peace of mind that they are buying a home without any major surprise defects, and that it is a safe place they and their family can live for years to come.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Before you list a home, you should consider contacting us to schedule an investigative evaluation of the property. This promotes a successful sale in two extremely important ways. You’ll be able to learn about any defective areas of the home so that you can make repairs at your own discretion to preserve the property’s value, and you’ll be able to maintain trust with prospective buyers by keeping them informed of any known issues before the buyer’s own inspector arrives to the property.
