D&M Home Inspections

A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual look at all of the major systems and components of a property. The home inspector will identify any issues that are defective or unsafe. The inspector will also identify if any of the components of the property are have reached or will soon reach the end of their expected life. This doesn't mean the components are not currently working, but that you could be expected to replace or repair in the near future.

The inspector should provide a written report with a recommended course of action on issues that turn up on the inspection. Sellers can have a home inspection prior to listing the property to know what to expect, needs repair, or what needs to be done to minimize concessions and have the sale go smoothly. Buyers usually use the report as a negotiation tool during the purchase.

A home inspection is not an insurance policy, warranty or any type of guarantee. Think of the home inspector as a consultant who will look at the big picture and make recommendations of what the next steps might be. It is important to remember that all houses have issues and most things are repairable. Stay calm and get estimates before making any big decisions.
