HOME INSPECTIONS

10 First-time Homebuyer Mistakes

Mistake 2: Skipping the Home Inspection

Getting a professional to inspect a house is the only way to ensure there are no major problems. ­

We learned in Mistake #4 not to take someone at his or her word until you get a written, signed agreement. Likewise, when you're buying a house for the first time, you can't just depend on asking the seller or real estate agent about problems with the foundation or plumbing. Not only might the seller or agent be less than candid about the answers, but chances are they're not construction experts.

If you skip the step of getting your own professional inspection, you risk living in a home that costs almost as much in repairs as you paid for it in the first place. As much as you're attracted to unique fixtures and structures in old houses, they may turn into a major liability.

So, when you make your offer to the seller, make sure they know that your offer is contingent on your approval of the house passing inspections. Before the inspector gets to work, make sure you agree on what he or she will check. This should include the overall foundation and structural features of the house, plumbing, the presence of mold or pest infestations, heating and air conditioning, as well as the electrical system. It's also a good idea to make sure the inspector is reputable -- check to see if he or she is certified with the American Society of Home Inspectors.

Answer: A well conducted Home Inspection should take approximately 1 hour per thousand square feet. This time can vary depending on what the Home Inspector is asked to do. If a Home Inspector is also contracted to complete a radon test, mold evaluation or property inspection then the total time at the site will increase.

Older homes take longer than newer homes because of the effects of aging and the tendencies of home owners to modify homes over time. Occupied homes take longer to inspect than vacant homes. A crawl space generally takes longer to inspect than a basement or a home on a concrete slab.

Inspectors who spend only 2 hours looking at a 3000 square foot home are likely working too fast or just not giving the facility the full evaluation required by State or agency guidelines. A quick look like this is referred to as a "drive-by inspection" and the Client is not getting their money's worth.

Before you contract with a Home Inspector, ask them how long they will take to look at the home. If quicker than 1 hour per thousand square feet, you might want to shop around some more.
