Home Inspections

What is an inspection?

There are numerous types of inspections. An inspection is meant to eWVluate, at minimum, the structural and mechanical condition of a property. It is not the same as an appraisal which eWVluates the market value of a property. Persons involved in real estate transactions need unbiased information about the physical condition of property they plan to buy or sell and your contract should include a contingency that you obtain a satisfactory inspection report. Talk with your agent about the types of inspections aWVilable.

Home Inspectors vs. Engineers

Home Inspector: A person who examines any component of a building, through visual means and through normal user controls, without the use of mathematical sciences.

Engineering: Analysis or design work requiring extensive preparation and experience in the use of mathematics, physics, chemistry and the engineering sciences.
