Purpose of a buyer home inspection

One of the most important aspects of the real estate transaction process is the conduction of a home buyer inspection. While in some cases buyers may waiver an inspection, it is wise (and recommended) to conduct one. The cost of a general inspection prior to the conclusion of the sale may reveal defects or structural problems that were not included in the seller’s disclosure, mostly because they didn’t know.

Rest assured, the results of a home inspection will help inform your purchasing decision and alert you to any major repairs needed in the future. Our licensed home inspectors are extremely thorough and will help keep your views about the property as realistic as possible. Even if a seller offers documentation or a report of their pre-listing inspection, your personally sought out home buyer inspection will offer a fresh pair of eyes and peace of mind.

What to expect from the report

Should you, as a home buyer, decide to attend the inspection you will get our findings first-hand, though in a less comprehensive way than in the home inspection report.

After any type of inspection, whether it be a mold inspection or a thorough mobile home inspection in San Diego, you will receive an unbiased, objective written report listing what is in acceptable/good condition and identifying defects within specific systems and components as observed by our professionally trained and licensed home inspectors. They may include additional comments and remediation recommendations. Our home inspectors may also address any of your questions or concerns following the buyer home inspection.
