    The Three Steps of a Residential
    Real Estate Inspection

    • 1
      Exterior Inspection

      Start by examining the exterior of the property. Look for any visible signs of damage, such as cracks in the foundation, deteriorating siding, or damaged roof shingles. Pay attention to the condition of the windows, doors, and any outdoor structures like decks or patios.

      Check the condition of the landscaping, including the health of trees, bushes, and the overall drainage of the property. Look for any signs of water damage, such as pooling water or soggy areas in the yard.

      Inspect the condition of the driveway, sidewalks, and any other paved areas. Note any cracks, uneven surfaces, or signs of wear and tear that may require repairs.

    • 2
      Interior Inspection

      Proceed to inspect the interior of the property. Start with the major systems, such as the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems. Test light switches, outlets, faucets, and toilets to ensure they are functioning properly.

      Examine the walls, ceilings, and floors for any visible damage or signs of water leaks. Look for cracks, stains, or sagging that could indicate structural issues or water damage.

      Check the condition of doors and windows, making sure they open and close properly and that the seals are intact. Look for signs of drafts or moisture around windows that could indicate poor insulation.

    • 3
      Safety and Security Inspection

      Perform a safety and security inspection to identify potential hazards. Test smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are in working order. Check for fire extinguishers and make sure they are not expired.

      Inspect the property for any potential safety issues, such as loose handrails, uneven stairs, or exposed wiring. Look for adequate lighting, both inside and outside the property, and ensure that pathways are clear and free of tripping hazards.

      Assess the security measures in place, such as locks on doors and windows, and consider the overall safety of the neighborhood. Look for any signs of previous security breaches or vulnerabilities that may need attention.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Here are some of our most common questions:

    What is a residential home inspection?

    A residential home inspection is a thorough examination of a home’s structural and mechanical systems, including the foundation, roof, plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems, and other components.

    Why is a home inspection necessary?

    A home inspection is necessary to identify potential problems or issues with a home that could lead to costly repairs or pose safety risks to occupants. It can also help homebuyers make informed decisions about purchasing a home.

    Who typically pays for a home inspection?

    Generally, the buyer pays for a home inspection, but this can vary depending on the terms of the real estate contract.

    How long does a home inspection take?

    The length of a home inspection depends on the size and age of the home, as well as the inspector’s thoroughness. Typically, a home inspection can take between two and four hours.

    What does a home inspector look for during an inspection?

    A home inspector looks for signs of structural damage, issues with the roof, foundation, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems, water damage, doors, ceilings, floors, grading and drainage, and other potential problems that could affect the safety, integrity, or value of the home.

    Can a home inspection uncover all potential problems with a home?

    No, a home inspection is not a guarantee that all potential problems with a home will be uncovered. Some issues may be hidden or require specialized expertise to identify.

    What should I do if a home inspection reveals issues with the home?

    If a home inspection reveals issues with the home, you should discuss the results with your real estate agent and determine if you can negotiate with the seller to address the issues, ask for repairs or credits, or decide to walk away from the sale.

    How often should I have a home inspection done?

    Some homeowners have their home inspected every 3-5 years. Others use inspectors as part of their annual maintenance process where they can use the list to give to contractors or handymen to keep their property maintenance up and their house in good working order.

    Do I need an inspection on a new home?

    It is common for us to find significant issues during the construction phase. That is why we offer an inspection prior to the pouring of concrete called a Pre Pour Inspection and an inspection prior to the installation of drywall or sheet rock, called the PreDrywall Inspection. These are crucial because once the concrete is poured its too late to really fix many things and once the drywall is installed we can no longer see most of the electrical, plumbing, framing and structure.

    Next day inspection. Tony was thorough and took the time to cover all the areas needed for inspection, even though it was raining. Took the time to explain and made my wife feel comfortable buying the house. I will recommend to anyone I know buying a new or older home. Thanks again!

    Tony was a great communicator and did a thorough job with our home inspection. He also offered valuable advice in handling necessary repairs and continued to respond to our questions after the inspection was done and we had closed on the house. It's that personal touch that really deserves five stars.

    I highly recommend Tony for home inspections. He was responsive and so accommodating and understanding when I had to move my inspection due to new build delays. His report was provided same day and pointed out a lot of things we noticed but then a lot of items we didn't catch. I would use Tony again or recommend him to someone else.

    My first time buyers were very pleased with the communication with Tony post-inspection to discuss his findings. He offers the buyers his knowledge and services long after the inspection has been completed!
