Ensuring a home inspection gets completed before buying a property will give you peace of mind that the building is in good condition. Besides, if any significant faults get identified during the inspection, these can be resolved, and you could even pay less for the house.

However, when it comes to home inspections, clients have a ton of questions but often find answers difficult to come by. 

Consequently, DS Home Inspection Services, LLC, wants to arm you with the most accurate information available to help you understand the process. To do this, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions about home inspections.

1. Should I walk around the house with the inspector?
Absolutely! Your inspector should be willing to explain everything they are inspecting. There will be times where they will need to focus and evaluate, but feel free to tag along and ask questions.

2. Can my agent be at the home inspection too?
Yes! Your agent is more than welcome to attend, and they will gain real-time information about any major concerns with the home.

3. Do I need to attend the home inspection?
No, but you should attend if possible. You will gain valuable insights about the home if you are there. The inspector can point out defects to you on the spot and answer any questions you may have.

4. What should I look for in the home inspection report?
A good inspection report will highlight all the defects identified with supporting pictures and video and a description of the defect, including the severity.

5. Can I call the home inspector if I have questions about the report?
Yes! Your home inspector should be available to answer any questions you may have about the report or any other queries regarding the assessment.
