Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why do you need a home inspection?
Buying a home is most likely the largest investment anyone will ever make. A home inspection lets you know the condition of the property BEFORE you close on it. You should have a clear understanding about the property and feel confident about the purchase of YOUR new home.

Does having a home inspection guarantee/warrant against future repairs?
NO! It gives you a general idea of the condition of the home and discloses present major repairs needed.
When does the buyer schedule a home inspection?
After you have made an offer to purchase and before closing is the best time. Have your Attorney or Real Estate Agent include an "Inspection Clause" in the contract! This makes your purchase contingent upon the findings of a professional home inspection.
