How to find a home inspector.

It is important to do your research before hiring a home inspector. Home inspections can be costly so you want to make sure that you are getting the most for your money. More importantly, you want someone who will do a thorough review of the home to uncover any issues that you need to know about. Contact the Nick Flerlage Team for our list of Recommended Home Inspectors in the Suncoast area. We are happy to help you! We also suggest that you interview several home inspectors before hiring one. This gives you the opportunity to find out about their particular experience, areas of expertise, and past training. Finally, ask to see some examples of their past home inspection reports. The more detailed the better for you!

 

 

What happens during the home inspection.

Once you have found a qualified home inspector, they will go to the home to do a thorough review. If possible, it is recommended that you attend the walk through with them so you can find out about any issues as they uncover them. If you cannot, a good home inspector will take detailed notes and photos for you to see afterward. The home inspector will examine all major aspects of the house. This includes its structure and systems, such as electrical and mechanical. They will check how everything operates, from the plumbing to the air conditioning. They will also look at doorways, windows, ceilings, walls, and floors for any problems. Remember, a home inspector does not have x-ray vision (unfortunately) so some issues might remain hidden. However, they should be able to identify the main areas you need to know in order to decide whether it is best for you to proceed with the closing or walk away from the home.
