We all know that buying a home can be a stress filled experience. You are interacting, under time constraints, with many people including lawyers, real estate agents, mortgage brokers and sellers. A home is one of the most important and expensive purchases you may ever make. As with any major purchase, it's best to have as much information as possible to make an educated and informed decision for you and your family. A professional home inspection will: -Assess the condition of the home and all of its systems -Identify components that are not performing properly as well as those that should be replaced. -Determine areas where repairs may be needed or those areas that have had past problems. -Provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the conditions of the home as observed at the time of the inspection. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. It's good to know about these things. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories: -Major Defects such as structural failure. -Things that could lead to major defects such as roof flashing leaks. -Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home. -Safety hazards such as an exposed live buss bar at the electrical panel.
