For many people, when they hear the words home inspection, they don’t think about anything other than an inspection that is performed before someone goes through with buying a home. While this is probably the most common home inspection, there are others that can be used to your benefit. Lifeline Inspection Services is here to talk about the different types of home inspections that are available to you.
As mentioned above, this is the most common home inspection that we see. This is an inspection that is paid for by people that are intending on purchasing a house. This is completed so that buyers can be aware of any issues that the property has, any issues that may arise in the near future, damage to the property and any other reason that a lender wouldn’t be willing to finance the home due to safety issues. It is a close look at all the major systems in a house including HVAC, electrical, plumbing, the roof and much, much more. Basically, every nook and cranny inside the house will be looked at during the buyer’s inspection for any issues.
Pre-Listing Home Inspection for Sellers
Sometimes, before a home is put on the market, the seller will have a pre-listing inspection done. This is an inspection that is very similar to the buyer’s inspection and just gives the seller a head’s up as to what issues may arise when they move to sell the house. This gives the seller the ability to make any necessary repairs or to plan on negotiating the price due to repairs that may come up. It can also be helpful in setting a selling price for the house.
Builder Warranty Inspections
When you have a home built, the builder will give you a one year warranty just in case there are any issues that they may have missed during the building process. If anything should go wrong in this period of time, they will come out and fix it. A builder warranty inspection is often referred to as an 11 month inspection, because it is done just to take a close look at the house a month or so before the warrant expires to ensure there aren’t any issues the builder needs to fix.
Home Maintenance Inspection
If you have lived in your home for several years and are just wondering if all the systems in your home are working as they should, a home maintenance inspection is a great way to have all of that checked out. The inspector will take a close look at your home for any structural, electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems are working well.
