Getting a home inspection is an important part of any residential real estate transaction. Hiring a qualified home inspector can help to identify existing and potential problem areas.

 


What is a Home Inspection?

For the home buyer the process of buying a home is exciting and yet can be stressful. You have spent a great deal of time and effort considering price, neighbourhood, style, size and floor plan. Once that decision is made, the fundamental question arises, is the house itself sound? What kind of repairs may be required and what can reasonably be anticipated in the way of costs.

For the home seller a pre-sale home inspection can be your competitive edge when it comes to offering the buyer peace of mind. What repairs should be made before putting the home up for sale? Will there be any surprises after the offer has been signed?

Limitations

A home inspection is part of the path to making a more informed home purchase decision. While it can help you gain a better understanding of the home, it is not technically exhaustive and all encompassing. It is a snapshot of the condition of the home today. Things can, and do, change and a home inspection will not stop these changes from occurring.

At the time of the inspection the Inspector is a guest in the Owner's home and for this reason the inspection is visual only of the readily accessible features of the property. Hidden defects cannot be detected. The home inspector cannot conduct any invasive or destructive testing. If the inspector cannot see it he cannot report on it.

While this inspection may reduce your risk of home ownership it is not an insurance policy, warranty or guarantee of the home.

How much does a Home Inspection Cost?

The price of your home inspection will largely be determined by the total size of the home. Here are some base prices to use as an estimate:

Residential (up to 2000 sq ft) $500 + GST
Additional 100 sq ft (above 2000) $10 + GST
