A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. Home inspections are conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components.
A residential inspection normally takes 2-4 hours depending on the size and age of the home. We check from the roof & attic to the ground, interior and exterior, electrical systems, plumbing systems, heating and cooling systems, foundation, crawlspaces and more.
Buying and selling a home can be stressful, a great way to prepare is to have the home inspected for potential issues that may come up during the real estate transaction. AccuSpec provides a professional home inspection and exceptional customer service. Our inspectors are certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI). Upon completing the inspection we will go over the results on site with the client and promptly transmit the finished report to you the same day.
A home inspector is sometimes confused with a real estate appraiser. A home inspector determines the condition of a structure, whereas an appraiser determines the value of a property. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house. It is not an inspection to verify compliance with appropriate codes. A similar but more complicated inspection of commercial buildings is a property condition assessment.
In the United States, a contract to purchase a house may include a contingency that the contract is not valid until the buyer, through a home inspector or other agents, has had an opportunity to verify the condition of the property. In Florida, home inspectors are required to be licensed, but in some states the profession is not regulated. Typical requirements for obtaining a license are the completion of an approved training course and/or a successful examination by the state's licensing board. Florida requires inspectors to obtain continuing education credits annually in order to renew their licenses.
