Pre-sale Home Inspection

Purchasing a house can be a frustrating and overwhelming experience that can offer many challenges for home-buyers, especially those entering the real estate market for the first time. The decision to buy a home is not only the largest but one of the most important financial decisions you will make in your lifetime.

Knowing what to look for in a house to determine whether it is worthy of not only a substantial financial investment but more importantly, safe for your family, can be a daunting challenge for those inexperienced with the numerous components and systems found in a typical home.

That’s why it is so important to have your home inspected by a certified professional home inspector before you commit yourself financially to a home that may prove problematic and require costly repairs after purchase.

Home inspections are one of the most important steps in the home buying process as they afford home buyers with the opportunity to make an informed financial decision by providing them with information on the condition of the home that may affect its value.

It is estimated that nearly 85% of home-buyers invest in a home inspection before purchasing a home and most lending institutions mandate a home inspection to ensure the home is worth the investment before they will grant the loan to purchase the home. A quality, professional home inspection conducted by a certified professional home inspector can provide you with the confidence you need to move forward with the real estate transaction and purchase that new home.

So, what is a home inspection?

A home inspection is a thorough non-intrusive, visual inspection of a house and many of its components and systems to document their condition, functionality, and safety.

The purpose of the home inspection is to provide home buyers with an unbiased evaluation of the home cataloging any defects or concerns evident to the inspector during the inspection that may affect the value or safety of the home.

A home inspection is not to be considered a pass/fail test, or a warranty or guarantee against anything that is wrong or will go wrong with the home, but merely a report on the condition of the home at the time of inspection. Northern Home Inspection Services, L.L.C. conducts a systematic top-down inspection of hundreds of points throughout the home, documenting their condition, operation and safety with the goal of providing you with the information you need to make the best financial decision regarding the home.
