Have you ever thought about purchasing a new home, but had no idea if it was in good condition? Like purchasing a car with a trusted mechanic, the same applies to houses. Home inspectors are a vital part of the purchasing process for a house. Qualified inspectors are difficult to find if you do not know what you are looking for, but will help you determine what your possible costs might be in the near future. 

 

What Home inspectors look for;

Foundation – foundations of a home is very important. If the property was not inspected for possible foundation flaws, and you purchase the property, then you are going to have problems.

Molds – Molds are harmful to anyone that lives near the property that molds exist. Home inspectors usually inspect every inch of the property to ensure no molds exist.

Termites – Even tho there are termite inspectors that can come out and determine if there are termites on your property, it can usually be caught by the inspector. 

 

Then comes the obvious problems

Flooring

Cracked walls 

Roofing

Plumbing 

Water Pressure

Windows

Doors
