GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR HOME INSPECTION WITH THE STEPS BELOW!

BUYERS

  • Interview at least three inspectors – ask for sample reports
  • Ask for referrals from friends or co-workers
  • Choose an ASHI certified, state licensed and professionally insured inspector
  • Don’t shop inspectors on price – you will live with your purchase decision for a long time!
  • Work with your Realtor to schedule the inspection at least a week before the closing
  • Plan to attend the inspection – bring a list of questions
  • Walk with the inspector – ask for an on-site review

SELLERS

  • Clean the home, maintain the yard
  • Provide documents detailing home improvements, upgrades and/or maintenance projects
  • Plan to be away for 2-3 hours during the inspection – your buyers need time in the home to visualize it as their own!
  • Remember, most inspectors arrive slightly before the scheduled appointment
  • Make sure pets are considered and made safe during the inspection

REALTORS

  • Encourage scheduling of the inspection at least one week prior to close
  • Work with the sellers to make sure all utilities, appliances, electrical breakers, pilot lights and HVAC systems are turned on prior to inspection
  • Keep parties informed on inspection times and changes in schedule
