Your Inspection


What to expect from your inspection

After completing the inspection, which usually takes a few hours depending on the property’s size and condition, the inspector will provide a detailed report which will be delivered to you later that day. This report highlights any issues or potential concerns, including photographs for reference. It’s advisable for you as the buyer to be present for the walk through at the end of the inspection where you will be given a presentation on everything you need to know about the home. This allows you to ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of the property’s condition, which can be invaluable in making an informed decision about the purchase.
