What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is an objective examination of the condition of the visible and accessible components of a home. Home buyers now entering the marketplace view inspections as a way to gain valuable information about the biggest purchase of their lifetime. It helps them to determine whether there are any major defects or systems inadequacies before they buy and it minimizes any unpleasant surprises or significant financial burdens later on.

Home inspections are not intended to point out every small problem or defect in a home. Minor or cosmetic flaws, for example, should be apparent without the aid of a professional. The inspection also should not be considered as an appraisal, a municipal code inspection, or a guarantee of any kind.

An important aspect of home inspections is that they also highlight the positive features of a home. In fact, many of the home inspector's observations or recommendations help to dispel home buyer anxieties, and provide useful home repair and maintenance suggestions.

The home inspector's service is primarily one of education. The goal of the inspector is to provide buyers with a better understanding of the physical condition of their prospective home so that they can make a more informed decision.
