For Your Protection: Get a Home Inspection

Why a Buyer Needs a Home Inspection A home inspection gives the buyer more detailed information about the overall condition of the home prior to purchase. In a home inspection, a qualified inspector takes an in-depth, unbiased look at your potential new home to: Evaluate the physical condition: structure, construction, and mechanical systems; Identify items that need to be repaired or replaced; and Estimate the remaining useful life of the major systems, equipment, structure, and finishes.

You Must Ask for a Home Inspection- A home inspection will only occur if you arrange for one. FHA does not perform a home inspection. Decide early. You may be able to make your contract contingent on the results of the inspection.

Appraisals are Different from Home Inspections- An appraisal is different from a home inspection and does not replace a home inspection. Appraisals estimate the value of the property for lenders. An appraisal is required to ensure the property is marketable. Home inspections evaluate the condition of the home for buyers. FHA Does Not Guarantee the Value or Condition of your Potential New Home If you find problems with your new home after closing, FHA cannot give or lend you money for repairs, and FHA cannot buy the home back from you. Ask a qualified home inspector to inspect your potential new home and give you the information you need to make a wise decision.

Radon Gas Testing and other safety/health issues-The United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Surgeon General of the United States have recommended that all houses should be tested for radon. For more information on radon testing, call the toll-free National Radon Information Line at 1-800-SOS-Radon or 1-800-767-7236. Ask your home inspector about additional health and safety tests that may be relevant for your home.

Be an informed buyer- It is your responsibility to be an informed buyer. You have the right to carefully examine your potential new home with a qualified home inspector. To find a qualified home inspector ask for references from friends, realtors, local licensing authorities and organizations that qualify and test home inspectors.

Pre-Listing Home Inspection

Conducted prior to listing your house on the market. This provides insight into areas of enhancement or repair that potential buyers might expect or request.

It is assumed that if conditions or situations are discovered by the inspector, the buyers’ inspector will also call attention to the same area.

This will give the seller time and opportunity to make the corrections or find a contractor of their choice to perform the work. This inspection may save you from last-minute negotiations or concessions to the buyer.
