A home inspection is an important consideration for both a home buyer and the home seller.
It is a good idea for the seller to get a pre-inspection prior to listing the home for sale.
I used licensed contractors that can save the homebuyer money since they will also do a wind mitigation report that here in Florida, can save you money on the homeowners policy.
Inspections cover the main functional systems : AC/heating, plumbing, electrical, etc. and the home structure and working parts. The satisfaction of permits for any changes are also researched.
The results of the inspection affect the value of a home, and defective items can be either replaced or a credit given to the buyer, depending upon the terms of the contract used in the purchase, and the negotiated agreement between the parties.
