A home inspection is a limited, visual survey and basic performance evaluation of the systems and components of a home using normal control that provides information regarding the general condition at the time of the inspection. It is not intended to be a comprehensive investigation or exploratory probe to determine the cause or effect of deficiencies noted by the inspector.
Its best to learn as much as you can about the home prior to purchasing. An inspection provides a clear understanding of the properties condition and helps identify potential problems or issues that can be addressed upfront rather than sometimes after you move in. Without the inspection you accept the property as is, regardless of the known or unknown defects.

Inspection can be lengthy so many buyers attend towards the end of the inspection to get a summary. It is always best to be present, if possible, so we can review any report findings to you in person. However you are not required to attend.

We recommend having an inspection on any home and this includes new. Most builders are high quality builders and provide high quality products. However it can be overwhelming for both builder and local city inspectors to keep up with the housing demand therefore it's great to have a third party inspector out to make sure items were not missed.
Choosing to have an inspector prior to listing your home provides a better understanding of conditions and possible defects which can be discovered by buyers inspector. These items can be addressed prior and help remove uncertainty.
