Re-Inspection

When the repairs requested after the General Home Inspection have been made, a Re-Inspection can be scheduled. This second inspection can help homebuyers determine if all agreed-upon repairs were completed as requested and if the home is now ready for purchase and move-in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is a thorough visual examination of a home’s structure and utilities beginning with the roof, proceeding through the structure and systems and ending at the foundation. Of particular importance are the electrical systems where problems can be very serious. The inspection also takes into account walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors as well as the foundation including the basement if one exists, crawl space or slab and any foundational structure.

The home inspection report will give an overview of the condition of the home’s internal and external condition from the interior plumbing, the electrical and HVAC,  attic and basement space, and any other elements.

The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI)

In Georgia, The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) provides Standards of Practice and a Code of Ethics that provide a framework for how an inspection should proceed and what should go into the final report.

If you are purchasing or selling a home it is critical that you have no surprises when it comes to the condition of your existing or newly constructed home.  A home inspection by a qualified inspector will help guarantee that there are no surprises, especially considering that for many, a home purchase is their single biggest investment. Knowing how many repairs, major and minor, that a home may need is information that is essential to making an informed decision.

Even though most inspections are ordered by purchasers and are required by mortgage companies, having an inspection as a seller can be a great selling point by showing potential buyers that you are providing full disclosure of any problems, and an inspection for a home that is not on the market can also give you a heads up on any potential problems that can go from a minor issue to a major expense.
