We all know that buying a home is a huge investment and commitment! Whether you’re buying new construction or a home that’s been around since the 1940s, it’s important to get it inspected so you understand its overall condition. A home inspection will put you in a better position to know whether the home is a good purchase for you because each person has a different tolerance for fixing issues in a home, meaning that what one person finds alarming or unacceptable, another person may not!
However, if you’ve never had a home inspection or it’s been awhile, you might not know what kind of issues home inspectors are looking for or what to expect at the conclusion of the inspection. At Jones Warren, we want to help ease any worries that you may have and help answer those concerns!
A home inspection is a general checkup, like going to your general practice doctor, not an X-ray exam. Although inspectors should have a keen eye for detail, they won’t be able to detect the unseen. That means hidden pests, asbestos, and mold or other potentially hazardous substances might go unnoticed. We also aren’t there to comment on cosmetic defects like worn carpet or window treatments.
Some people tend to worry about receiving the report but we’re here to assure you that a home inspection is not a pass or fail situation! Home inspections can take anywhere from 2.5-3 hours, on average. After it’s completed, we will email you a detailed report within 24 hours.
At Jones-Warren, we’re ready to serve all of your home inspection needs and help any other questions you might have when it comes to getting your home inspected! Give us a call or schedule your appointment today! 205.607.0031
