Buying a home is one of the largest investments most individuals will make. While no single item can guarantee a completely stress-free home purchase, a home inspection can provide some peace of mind to the buyer before they sign on the dotted line.
How long does a home inspection take, and what is the cost?A typical home inspection, based on a 2,000-square-foot home, should take around 2-3 hours. If your home is larger or smaller than 2,000 SF, that estimate may go up or down.
Here are some of the advantages of having a home inspection:
– It may help the buyer in deciding that the property is sound.
– Provides knowledge of exactly what you are purchasing before signing a contract.
– The home inspection may uncover the need for replacement of, or repairs to, wiring, roofing, or other structural concerns.
