A good home inspection is an integral part of any purchase transaction. Detecting any health and safety issues before closing can save a new home owner thousands of dollars. A good inspector will provide valuable information for the buyer about their new home that will assist in the future care and maintenance of their home. A good inspector should be experienced, a good communicator and a non-alarmist. All information should be relayed to the buyer in a factual manner with accurate documentation so the client can understand of all major features of the home.
Interview several inspectors for price and scope of work. For example:
Do they include radon air, radon water and water quality in their inspections?
Do they include a pest inspection?
Do they check the well pump and/or do a water flow test?
In addition to a whole house inspection, you will want to consider having a well and septic inspection because these are major systems that service the home.
