How Long Will It Take?
In most cases, the average inspection takes between 2 to 3 hours depending on the size, condition, and age of the property.
What If the Report Reveals A Problem?
No home is perfect. If a problem is detected, it doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't buy the home. You now know, in advance, what to expect. A seller may elect to fix the problem if problems are found. If you are on a tight budget, this information will prove invaluable.
