Home inspections tend to confuse homebuyers, especially if buying a house is a first-time experience. Below are different types of home inspections you may encounter:
Primary Home Inspection
I can’t stress enough how important this step is to buying a home. You’ll want to have your future house thoroughly inspected by a professional home inspector. This detailed inspection of a property involves the inspection of the electrical system, plumbing, heating, foundation and structure, roof, and much more.
The purpose of the inspection is to check for the presence of termites or other wood-destroying insects in a house.
Well Water Inspections
This varies on location, some properties may involve a well water inspection to check whether the water in the area is suitable for drinking.
An appraisal is ordered by the home buyer’s lender to determine an opinion of value for the home.
Final Walk-Through Inspection
This is a final inspection of the property conducted by the buyer and the real estate agent. The final walk-through normally takes place a day or two before close of escrow. The purpose of this inspection is to ensure that any repairs agreed upon in advance have been made, and that no other issues have arisen.
