Buying a Home this Spring? Be a More Informed Buyer with a Home Inspection

Posted by & filed under Residential Home Inspections.

Spring is home buying season! Home buying season can vary, but in general, it starts at the end of March in early spring and lasts through summer and sometimes early fall. Are you in the market for a new home this season? Congratulations! This is an exciting time but don’t forget one of the most important parts of buying a home; the inspection. A home inspection from a seasoned home inspector is meant to give you an unbiased and honest report about the home’s condition. A property inspector wants you to buy your dream home, but they also want you to be well informed and know what you’re getting yourself into. Our Sacramento home inspector at CapCity Building Inspection, with over 35 years of experience, is here to do just that. We understand that buying a home can feel like a complicated process and we are here to make the inspection portion as easy as can be. Here are a few things to keep in mind this buying season.

During your search for your dream home this year, you may think you’ve found the one. However, it is essential to learn everything you can about the home in order to make an informed decision about your purchase. One of the last things you want to find out too late is that your dream home has structural damage, wiring issues, foundation issues or other security risks. Our professional home inspector can investigate the home’s structure for these issues, so you can be aware of any problems that may exist.

Essentially, from foundation to roof, outside and inside, your home inspector should provide for you a confidential written report easy to read and understand, including pictures of the home conditions found, explanations and/or recommendations for maintenance, repair or further evaluations. Your home inspector should cover all ends of the home, including:

  • Roofing
  • Structural
  • Pools and spas
  • Fireplaces and chimneys
  • Exteriors
  • Interiors
  • Foundations and basements
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Attics
  • Heating and cooling
  • And more

A home inspection should always include a look at the roof, the heating and cooling system, plumbing and electrical. Since a home inspection is not “exhaustive,” it may not uncover every possible issue. However, a home inspection is an absolute essential step in the home buying process.
