3 Questions Clients Should Ask Their Home Inspector
Buyers can get lost in the home buying process. During the inspection, they have a golden opportunity to get answers to essential questions, but they often don’t know where to start. As a trusted name in the home and commercial inspection industry, National Property Inspections Miami Valley has upheld a reputation of honesty, integrity and professionalism in the greater Dayton area since 2005. Here are three questions clients should ask during the inspection process to cover all their bases and fully understand their new home.
- “Can you explain this for me?”
An average inspection report can be anywhere from 35 to 80 pages of valuable information, so it can be a little intimidating. Buyers should not be afraid to ask for clarification! This is one of the biggest investments they will ever make, so they want to make sure that all questions are addressed.
- “Is this problem big or small?”
Sometimes it can be hard to tell how big an issue is, but not to worry—many items an inspector points out in the report will be small and easy to fix. Other issues, like a leaky roof, may or may not be expensive headaches. It’s in the buyer’s best interest to ask the home inspector whether an issue found is a real concern or just something to note and repair later.
- “What is the best way to maintain this home’s systems?”
A home inspection is a great time for buyers to learn more about the simple maintenance tasks that they will need to perform. The home inspector is the perfect person to ask—they’re always happy to answer questions about a home’s HVAC, electrical, plumbing and other systems and how to keep them in good working order.
