It is the process by which a home inspector visually examines the readily accessible systems and components of a home and describes those systems and components in accordance with the New York State Standards of Practice.
The better question to ask would be why would you not get an inspection? Buying a home is typically the largest monetary investment you will ever make. It is important for you to have it inspected so that you can have a full list of pros and cons related to that property that can help you make your decision. No one would want to invest their hard-earned money in a property that is riddled with imperfections.
Fully Inspected takes longer to inspect a home than most home inspection companies. This is because of our thoroughness and attention to detail. Our inspections run a minimum of 3 ½ – 4 hours. We spend 3 – 3 ½ hours inspecting the home and then ½ – 1 hour discussing the findings at the end of the inspection with our clients. This is on 1,500-2,000 square foot home. 3,000 square foot homes take about 4 – 5 hours. 4,000 sq. foot homes take about 5 – 6 hours. 5,000 square foot homes take about 6 – 7 hours and so forth. Older homes in poor condition can take longer to inspect.
That is your decision. If you’d like to attend, you are welcome to come along. We do request our clients to meet us at the end of the inspection so we can walk them through and discuss everything they need to know about the home and any problems that we found.
Fully Inspected highly recommends a pre-listing inspection. This will inform you of any problems that exist. We will also let you know if your systems and components aren’t up to standards. When a future buyer comes in and puts a contract on your home you will have everything in good shape so when they hire a home inspector to check things out there will not be a list of repairs facing them that might make them skittish about going through with the purchase.
No. There is no pass or failed home inspection. Fully Inspected lets you know everything about the home and then you decide whether you want to proceed to closing and purchase it.
All home inspections will reveal problems. Some are minor, some are major. Some homes only have a few minor problems while other homes will have a long list of repairs including major ones. Repairs are typically negotiable between the buyer and the seller.
Our basic inspection costs $550 which includes a thorough sweep of both indoor and outdoor of your house. As well as, a detailed inspection report which is given to the customers the same day.
