Although architectural details, wall and floor coverings, modern conveniences and many other factors are important in the buying decision, the focus of this inspection is on the structural, mechanical, electrical condition of the property.

The inspection is designed to give the real estate agent or prospective purchaser a system to detect some of the readily accessible major flaws or deficiencies in the significant components and systems of a home. It is not designed to, nor does it profess to facilitate detection of all flaws, problems or occurrences that might exist in any given home.

To maximize time efficiency and to ensure all of the major sections of the home are take into consideration, we have developed a systematized approach to the inspection. This is a simplified overview of systems that professional home inspectors use when they are inspecting a home.

This home inspection checklist is provided by the American Home Inspector Directory as a guideline only, to provide an overview/example of the structural and mechanical components involved in the inspection of a home, and is not intended to constitute a detailed, systematic thorough inspection or report on the condition of a home.

 

Do I need an inspection?

A complete general home inspection helps:

  • Provide assurance that you've made a sound buying decision.
  • Reveal any necessary repairs and investments before you buy.
  • Give you valuable details about each aspect of your new home.
  • Help Reduce the risk of unwanted "surprises" after you move in.
  • Alleviate buyer’s remorse.

Your purchase and sale agreement should include a due diligence period during which you can get a professional inspection and perform your own inspection.
