The home inspection begins with the Pre Inspection Agreement. This is simply a document that covers what is inspected and what is not inspected. You will need to read over it and sign it. You have a choice of who else you would like to receive a copy of the report. For example; your Realtor.
A thorough home inspection takes about two to four hours depending on the size of the home. After the inspection, I will go to my office to compile and edit my findings and photos to create a report in PDF format. Your inspection report will be emailed to you after payment has been made, I am more than happy to discuss your report with you in person or on the phone.
There you have it. Now you are armed with facts and photos to help you make a better decision on the biggest financial investment of your life.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE AT THE INSPECTION? You are more than welcome to attend the inspection. Be aware that an inspection can last three hours or more, and be tedious and boring for the observer. I recommend that you arrive near the end of the inspection so that I can review with you any deficiencies that I have found.
Thank you very much for the extremely thorough report. This will be the 3rd house I've bought, and I've sold 2 before, and this is by far the most detailed inspection I've seen. You're a credit to the profession, and wanted to let you know I appreciate your quick response and hard work.
