We will be taking notes for the report as we move around the house. At the end of the inspection, we will discuss problems and give a summary of our findings to the clients and agents, if present. Benefits of a Home Inspection You will gain an understanding of the components and systems of your home, their operation, and required maintenance. This will make the purchase decision more informed, as well as make the home more enjoyable to live in later. The home purchase is a big investment and the expert investigation by a Home Inspector helps to minimize your risk. The up front purchase price is known, but unexpected, serious repair costs arising after the purchase should be avoided. If identified before finalizing a deal, the cost of major repairs can often be negotiated into the final purchase price. Scheduling an Inspection Most inspections are scheduled by phone. Either the homeowner/buyer calls or the realtor calls. When you call, be ready to supply information about the house, its location, size, and features so that the inspection can be priced and scheduled. Usually the realtor will contact other Realtors involved. They will contact the seller (if appropriate) and arrange for the house to be available. The house should be prepared, with crawlspace and attic openings, furnaces and water heaters, and electrical panels (both inside and out) all accessible. Inspectors need plenty of room in front of our around each of those areas to adequately inspect them. Normally a home inspection takes two to four hours, depending on the time it takes to examine all the systems in a house, take notes for the report, and discuss the findings with the client and the agent. Cost of a Home Inspection The inspection fee for a typical one-family house varies geographically and may vary depending upon the size of the house, particular features of the house, its age, and possible additional services, such as pool, septic,well, or radon gas testing. However, do not let cost be a factor in deciding whether or not to have a home inspection, or in the selection of your Home Inspector. Remember, saving the cost of one moderate repair can pay for the inspection. The knowledge gained from an inspection is well worth the cost, and the lowest priced inspector is not necessarily a bargain. The inspector's qualifications, including his experience, training, and professional affiliations, should be the most important considerations.

Everything identified during the inspection will be included in the report. Armed with the information our report will provide, you can make your decision with confidence.
