STEP 7. THE BUYER’S INSPECTION
A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home. Home inspections are usually conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components
The fee for the home inspection is typically paid for by the buyer. The buyer will mostly likely have a wood destroying/termite inspection performed at the same time. If your home has a pool or other amenities it will be inspected as well.
You, may want to be present for all inspections. The buyer, in most cases will be present at the inspection with their agent.
