ABOUT HOME INSPECTIONS

HOME INSPECTIONS & WHY YOU SHOULD OBTAIN ONE

As a prospective home buyer are you sophisticated in identifying problems areas in your potential new home? Most of us are not knowledgeable in identifying potential problem areas. You are in the process of making a very large investment, maybe the largest investment you'll ever make. For just a small investment now, you may save substantial money in the future. Can you afford to not have a professional home inspector survey the premises for the integrity of the internal and external components of the dwelling?

Here are a few areas that home inspectors look at:

Structural: Many home inspection organizations have set standards on certain areas of the home that the home inspector looks at to determine the integrity of the essential internal and external structural components. Home inspectors are not structural engineers, but can identify visual defects in these areas requiring immediate repairs.

Electrical: Do the outlets work? Does the house use fuses or is there a breaker box? Are there any visual signs of fraying on the wiring?

Plumbing: Are there any leaks or annoying drips? Are all the mechanical systems and fixtures working properly?

Built-In Appliances: Are they functioning properly?

Safety Hazards: Home inspectors are not environmental specialists, but they can identify many safety hazards or dangerous conditions.

Miscellaneous: Other items may or may not be included in a standard home inspection. Some of these may be: roofs, drainage problems, wood decks, patios or other exterior structures. Be sure and verify which, if any, of these items are included in your home inspection.

Normally Not Included: Termite, septic, well, geological or land subsidence surveys and environmental or pollution inspections which should be completed separately for your own protection.

Home inspectors provide a unique customer service in identifying existing problems, should there be any, and assisting in promoting and facilitating communication with the home seller. There are many home inspection companies to choose from. All real estate agents must provide the home inspection website to all clients and customers.. www.state.ma.us/re/board/hi. While we cannot be responsible for the individuals and companies listed on the website each should be happy to provide you with a list of past clients to assist you in making your decision. Prior to making your decision, you will want to review their forms and literature carefully, as well as consider the reputation of the company.

WE RECOMMEND YOU ALWAYS OBTAIN A GENERAL HOME INSPECTION AS WELL AS SURVEYS AND INSPECTIONS IN SPECIALIZED AREAS BEYOND THE SCOPE OF THE GENERAL HOME INSEPCTIONS.
