September 14, 2007, Newsletter Issue #147: The Inspection Report

Tip of the Week

Your home inspector should provide you with a written report of the condition of the home. This report will describe each feature of the home, and outline any deficiencies. Keep in mind that the home inspector's job is to identify any problems with the home, so don't be alarmed if the report seems to focus on the negative. Sellers who get an inspection prior to putting the house on the market will sometimes offer a copy of the report (if it's favorable) to potential buyers. This can be a great selling tool, but keep in mind that a buyer will still do his or her own inspection, which may turn up issues that the first inspection didn't find.
