your home is under contract, the buyer has a period of time in which he
or she may inspect your home. Some inspections to expect are: a home
inspections performed by a certified home inspector, a wood destroying
organism inspection, and if applicable, a survey, septic and/or well
inspection. Although there are many other types of inspections
available to Buyers, these are generally the most common.
of the items typically investigated during a home inspection are:
appliances, plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems,
structure, foundation, roof and attic. If any of the following are
areas of concern, the Buyer may ask the inspector to address concerns
regarding indoor air quality, expansive soil conditions, previous fire,
pests and mold.
Prior to closing, the
Buyer will conduct another “inspection”, usually referred to as the
final walk-through. This is where they will confirm that any repairs
agreed upon have been completed and that the home is in the same
condition as when the offer was written.
