What Is A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a visual examination of the home’s major systems and focuses on the home’s condition rather than code or design issues. Home Inspections are conducted by a Certified Professional Inspector (CPI) and are connected to a real estate transaction.
When Does a Home Inspection Occur?
The Home Inspection happens after the buyer has made on offer on a home, and before closing the sale.
When you agree to purchase a home, you may be legally obligated to finalize a deal. Home inspections allow you to back out of a contract. Also, a copy of the inspection report can be used to help you ask the seller to fix any problems, negotiate the asking price, or ask the seller to contribute more to the closing cost.

You are not required to attend the home inspection. However, by attending the home inspection, you can thoroughly examine your new home and ask questions. This process can be much more informative than the report alone.
What Do Home Inspectors Look For?
Home Inspectors typically look for any major issues within the home such as water damage, problems with the foundation, electrical, structural and issues with the HVAC system.

How To Prepare for the Home Inspection
If you want to be prepared for your home inspection make sure that the home inspector has access to the home, the electrical panels, furnace, and water heater. In addition, you can also make sure that all of the light bulbs are in working order, run the water in every sink to check for clogs, and replace the filters in the HVAC system, and finally make sure that pets are locked up while the inspector conducts his inspection.
