HOME INSPECTION

 

If you are purchasing a resale property (or new), Hurst Home Realty highly recommends that you

have a professional home inspector conduct a thorough inspection.  The inspection could include the

following (some at additional cost, so have your Realtor inquire, before scheduling):

 

 

§  Plumbing

§  Electrical

§  Air Conditioning and Heating

§  Ventilation

§  Roof and Attic

§  Foundation

§  General Structure

§  Pool / Spa

§  Solar Systems

§  Chimney and Fireplace

 

The inspection is not designed to criticize every minor problem or defect in the home. It is intended to report on major damage or serious problems that require repair. Should serious problems be indicated, the inspector will

recommend that a structural engineer or some other professional inspect it as well.

 

You home cannot “pass or fail” an inspection, and your inspector will not tell you whether he/she thinks

the home is worth the money you are offering.  The inspector’s job is to make you aware of repairs

that are recommended or necessary.

 

The seller may be willing to negotiate completion of repairs or a credit for completion of repairs, or you

may decide that the home will take too much work and money.  A professional inspection will help

you make a clear-headed decision.  In addition to the overall inspection, you may wish to have

separate tests conducted for termites or the presence of radon gas.

 

In choosing a home inspector, consider one that has been certified as a qualified and experienced

member by a trade association.

 

We recommend being present at the inspection.  This is to your advantage. You will be able to clearly

understand the inspection report, and know exactly which areas need attention.  Plus, you can get

answers to many questions, tips for maintenance, and a lot of general information that will help you once

you move into your new home.  Most important, you will see the home through the eyes of an

objective third party.
