Let Us Help You, and Your Home
Buying a home? The process can be stressful. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often includes a written report, checklist, photographs, environmental reports and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller’s disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do?
Relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancy and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:
- Major defects. An example of this would be a structural failure.
- Things that lead to major defects. A small roof-flashing leak, for example.
- Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home.
- Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel.
Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4).
Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller’s disclosure or nit-picky items.

Home Energy Score
A visual inspection of the structure and components of a home to find items that are not performing correctly or items that are unsafe.
A full home inspection prior to or shortly after your home is listed. Pre-listing inspections benefit all parties involved, and they are gaining in popularity. They allow the seller to address major concerns and become aware of potential issues that may arise when the seller has an inspection.
Home Energy Inspection
This is the first step to assess how much energy your home consumes and to evaluate what should be done for your home to become more energy efficient.
