How long does a townhome inspection take?
A typical inspection should take 2 to 3 hours to complete. This can vary, given the current condition and size of the townhome, the accessibility of mechanical systems, and so on.
What do you look at?
We inspect the major systems of the house. These include the Roof, Exterior, Structure, Electrical, Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Insulation, and Interior. Our goal is to identify any existing major problems that would affect a typical buyer's decision to purchase.
Can I follow along?
Definitely. We encourage you to attend. The inspection is a valuable learning experience for most homebuyers. You should dress comfortably and be prepared to spend roughly 2 1/2 hours walking through the home. You won't have to climb on the roof or go into the attic, so your clothes won't get dirty.
Do I have to take notes?
You don't have to take notes during the inspection. We will document everything in a written report. It's much better to follow the inspector through, listening to his comments to make sure you understand. It's also a great opportunity to ask questions and to clarify anything that confuses you.
If it's really bad, will you tell us not to buy the townhome?
No. Our goal is to report on the condition of the house, indicating potential repairs and expenses. Ultimately, it is your decision as to whether or not you buy the house. The home inspection is very important but it is only one piece of the puzzle. Only you know all of the factors at play.
How much does an inspection cost?
Our typical fee for an inspection depends on the size of your home. We have various packages for buyer and sellers Inspections. View our Package Rates.
