What is a home inspection?

A home inspection describes the type and quality of construction, and evaluates the current condition of the property so that the potential homebuyer is able to make prudent, informed decisions about the property. The home inspection report will detail the positive aspects and/or deficiencies of the property's visible and accessible components, including the roof, foundation, plumbing, electrical, heating and air conditioning systems.

How much does a home inspection cost?

Home inspection fees vary depending on the size of the home and the services being contracted. Typically for a 1,500 square foot home, the inspection fee is $259.00.

Should the buyer attend the home inspection?

Absolutely! Attending the home inspection assists the homebuyer in gaining a better understanding of the condition of the home prior to purchase. Mr. Gool will walk through the property with the potential homebuyer, answering any questions, pointing out and explaining conditions both positive and negative, while conducting the inspection. Completed home inspection reports are emailed within 24 hours of the actual inspection.

How long does a home inspection last?

Typically, between 2 - 3 hours.
