Home Inspection for Your Home Purchase!

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week! This post is mostly for home buyers or people who might be planning on purchasing a home going into 2018! Once you have found the home you want to purchase and both the buyer and seller have agreed to the terms, your Realtor should give you the opportunity for a home inspection to be completed. 

I typically always recommend for my buyers to have a home inspection completed. This will allow them to evaluate the home inspection report and make sure the condition of the home is satisfactory to them. Shouldn’t you as a buyer have questions for the home inspector? For future home buyers, have you thought of a list of questions to ask your home inspector? Below are a few questions that you may find helpful.  

1.) Are you licensed and insured?

2.) How long have you been a licensed inspector? 

3.) Do you belong to the Better Business Bureau or any other organizations? 

4.) What is included with your home inspection package? (well, septic, gas lines, roof, swimming pools, etc.) 

5.) If repairs are needed, do you charge a re-inspection fee? 

6.) How long before I receive a copy of the home inspection report? (make sure your purchase contract has a enough time for a inspection to be completed) 

7.) How much do you charge for the home inspection? Are there any other fees I should be expecting? 

8.) How do I pay you for the services completed? (Apple Pay, Check, Credit Card, etc.) 

9.) Do you offer any other services? (termite, WDO Inspections, etc.) 

10.) Appx. how long does a home inspection take? (I always recommend my buyers to attend the inspection) 

I hope you find this information helpful. As always if you have any questions about the home buying process, please give me a call/text (352) 572-1739 or email me at Info@HomesForSaleOcalaMarion,com
