A home inspection is an objective, visual, non-destructive
examination of the systems and structure of a home — from the roof to the foundation. It is not a warranty or insurance program. It is designed to assist you in understanding the condition of your new home. Having an inspection is similar to getting a physical checkup. If a problem or symptom is discovered, the inspector may offer solutions, maintenance suggestions or recommend further evaluation.
The home inspection is one of the most important steps in the home purchase process. The home inspector works with you, to protect your investment. In many cases the home inspector will find issues that can be corrected by the seller before the sale takes place. If you want to avoid buying a lemon, you will need a home inspection.
Ordering a home inspection BEFORE you list a home for sale is a great idea for people who are interested in getting to a closing quickly and with fewer surprises.
For agents, choosing a competent or better home inspector is no easy task. Agents alike want better service, better reporting, and more of a standard in reporting and delivery. Republic Home Inspections uses software that is designed to make this process easier and more consistent.
