Home Inspection

Home Inspection Tips for Buyers

When buying a home, the last stage before you finally commit to purchasing the home is the home inspection. The home inspection comes at the tail end of a long and often tedious process of looking at many homes before finally settling on the one you want to buy.

Because the inspection happens after you have already decided that you like a home and agreed on a purchase price with the seller, it often feels like a formality. But as RentSmartUSA warns, treating this part of the home-buying journey with levity could cost you severely in the future.

Every time you give money to a stranger in exchange for something, there is some risk involved. That risk increases with how much you paid and how central the purchase is to your life. This is what makes buying a home the purchase with the most power to derail your happiness.

This is the reason you should take steps to ensure that your decision to buy the home is the correct one. The home inspection can help you do this by uncovering undetected or undisclosed issues with the structures and systems of the home, as well as its appliances.

However, although the home inspection is supposed to give you the tools to make an informed decision, it does not always do this. That is because the outcome of the inspection depends entirely on the ability of the home inspector you hire and the actions you take after the inspection.

The fact is it is possible to have a home inspection and still end up buying an overvalued home with serious problems. This can happen if you fail to take the right steps during the home inspection. But by following the tips explained below, you will be able to escape that possibility.

Tip #1: Do not waive the inspection

Sometimes, buyers are tempted, with the active encouragement of the seller, to waive their right to inspect the home. Do not do this, not even if the buyer has done a prelisting home inspection. Every home, including a newly built one, can have major problems and the only way to know if you can live with the problems is to do an inspection.

Tip #2: Make the inspection part of the purchase agreement

Note that the moment you sign a purchase agreement with the seller, that contract is binding. The only way you can walk away from the deal, without paying any penalties, is if you make the finalization of the sale contingent on the home inspection. There is no place for a gentleman’s agreement here and get everything in writing or you will pay dearly.

Tip #3: Do not choose the cheapest home inspector

The best inspectors have experience and a list of past clients they can refer you to. They are also respected members of the local chapter of their organization. And they will have modern equipment for doing their work. Such inspectors will usually not be the cheapest, but you can hire them with the knowledge that you will be in safe hands.

Tip #4: Plan to attend the inspection

The competence of a home inspector means nothing if you cannot interpret the home inspection report. Home inspectors cannot tell you whether to buy a home or not. They can only provide you with the information to make that decision. The best way you can get a good sense of the condition of a home is by accompanying the inspector on their rounds.

Tip #5: Don’t expect a perfect report

As already stated, no home is perfect and every home inspection is bound to reveal problems, even if the home is a new construction. Keep this in mind to avoid letting your disappointment led you to walk away from a perfectly good property. Furthermore, the home inspection cannot find everything that is wrong with the home since it focuses on critical issues only.

Tip #6: Know the difference between major and minor problems

There are three ways to respond to the home inspection report. You can ask the seller to do repairs, or you can negotiate a lower price, or you can decide to walk away from the deal. Knowing when to negotiate for repairs, or money, or deciding to simply walk away is important and only you can decide which is the appropriate one.

Tip #7: Verify repairs before finalizing

If you ask the seller to carry out repairs on the home, you must check the completed repairs to be sure they are done to your expectations. You can do this by requesting the repair documents from the seller and having the finished repairs re-inspected by the home inspector. This step is to prevent the seller from cutting corners on important problems.

Tip #8: Arrange specialty inspections where necessary

Home inspectors will do a general evaluation of the systems and structures of the home, as well as its appliances. During their inspection, they may flag certain items or areas and recommend that you investigate them further. This usually means hiring a specialist to inspect the highlighted problem. Do not overlook such recommendations by your home inspector.

There you have it. Home inspection tips for buyers.

How to Get Ready for a Home Inspection

If you are a homeowner about to sell your home, here is something you must understand. Your home’s curb appeal will draw buyers to it, but the condition of its structures and systems will determine if it gets sold or not. Carrying out upgrades to your property increases the probability that it will catch buyers’ interest. But the home’s functionality will eventually sell it.

Even if buyers are satisfied with the location, appearance, and price of a home, what finalizes the sale is the home inspection report. This is why homeowners should make understanding the home inspection a central part of the process of selling their home. This knowledge will help homeowners take the right preparation steps and avoid problems during the inspection.

Below are the steps homeowners should take before a home inspection.

Stage 1: Make necessary repairs and check the function of various items

To know what needs fixing in the home, it may be necessary to do a pre-listing home inspection. This ensures homeowners are not surprised by any issues that will be uncovered by the buyer’s inspection.

Important checks and repairs to do include:

  • Roof repairs – Inspect the roof and its internal structures and pressure-wash the roof, if necessary, replace missing or damaged shingles, clear debris from gutters, ensure downspouts are not discharging water on walls.
  • Fix water damage – Inspects toilets, faucets, bathtubs, showers, pipes, joints, and underneath the sink, check ceilings, walls, and floors for signs of water damage, and inspect appliances for leaks.
  • Check fixtures – Re-caulk around bathtubs and sink, replace discolored grout, remove drain clogs, flush toilets to ensure they are working properly, run all faucets, be sure toilets and faucets do not drip.
  • Inspect the insulation in the attic and crawl space – Replace damaged insulation, drape crawl space with 6 mm plastic sheeting and inside the crawl space, check heating ducts to be sure they are connected, inspect duct fans to see that they are venting out of the attic.
  • Replace blown out light bulbs – If lights don’t come on after bulbs are replaced, check the wiring, run the ceiling and bathroom fans.
  • Check the operation of windows – Test all locks and inspect seals, replace the torn screen on windows.
  • Inspect kitchen and bathroom cabinets for loose parts and doors that do not flush with the frame.
  • Inspect doors and check their operation – Doors must latch onto their frames seamlessly, doorknobs must be firmly in place, and locks must work well, and check the weather stripping on doors.
  • Manually open and close garage doors – Test the garage door operation with the remote, test garage door reverse safety mechanism.
  • Prepare the home’s exterior – Trim tree branches that are hanging too close to the roof, slope soil away from the base of the home to prevent water pooling around the foundations.

Step 2: Check the home’s safety and security

  • Use self-test feature to check smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detector, replace batteries if needed.
  • Check fire extinguisher operation, ensure it is full, and confirm the pressure gauge is in the right position.
  • Exterminate pests and rodents on the premises.

Step 3: Clean home and declutter access points

Home inspectors do not score a home on their level of cleanliness but a clean and tidy home will put the inspector in a positive frame of mind. If the home is messy, the inspector will expect other parts of the property to be equally uncared for.

Inspectors need access to every part of the home. If a home inspector doesn’t get access to anything in the home, they will not include it in their report. This could stall the sale of the home.

  • Remove all laundry from washing machine and dryer
  • Remove dishes from sink and dishwasher
  • Clean or replace furnace filter, clean the stove and attic, clear out stored materials from the attic, declutter closets that are access points to the attic or crawl space.
  • Give the inspector clear access to the home’s exterior (siding, trim, windows, doors, and foundations).
  • Clear a path around the home’s perimeter and clear brush away from the foundation as well as move trash cans that block access.
  • Remove items that block access to the furnace, air conditioner, and water heater; create around four feet of working space.

 Step 4: Final preparations

  • Label electrical boxes correctly
  • Ensure pilot lights on gas-fired appliances – water heater and fireplace – are on
  • Make sure utilities are connected
  • Leave the keys to gates, electrical boxes, and outbuildings and make sure to label keys correctly
  • Leave all remote controls – lights, garage doors, and ceiling fans
  • If necessary, sketch a map of the property showing the location of wells and septic tanks
  • Provide all the maintenance records for the home

Finally, make plans to leave the home on the inspection day and stay away for, at least, three hours. If you have a pet, take it with you. Make sure your estate agent is present when the inspector and buyer arrive. Go have some fun; you have done all you can and it’s no longer in your hands. And if you had a regular home maintenance inspection, the whole process will be easier for both you and the buyer.

Why a Home Insurance Inspection is Necessary?

Why a Home Insurance Inspection

Homeowners insurance safeguards your home and possessions against damage, theft, fire, wind and liability. A home inspection provides both you and your insurance provider with an idea of the home’s health. Your insurance provider uses the inspection report as a tool in assessing risk, a vital part of developing your insurance policy. You can also use the report as a tool in prioritizing any necessary home repairs, if any issues are found.

A Home Insurance Inspection is Different from Regular Home Inspections

A regular home inspection is done with reference to the marketability of the home. A home insurance inspection is a limited inspection that only covers the specific points insurance carriers are concerned with. It does not provide any information on its condition for selling or buying, nor does it guarantee insurability.

Replacement Cost

Your insurer is liable to pay for the losses caused by hurricanes, theft or fire as specified in the policy. In case the home is totally destroyed, the insurer has to pay for rebuilding the house. This cost can be remarkably different from the market value of the home. The report helps the insurance carrier to assess any existing risks for damage within the house, and thus mitigate their potential outlay.

4 Systems that are Covered in the Insurance Inspection

While insurance companies do not provide specific instructions on what to look for in this type of home inspection, there are 4 key areas that experience has shown they care about:

  1. The roof
  2. The electrical system
  3. Plumbing and heating systems
  4. Ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems

What the Home Inspector will look at in an Insurance Home Inspection

The home inspector will take note of the age and type of system in each of the four areas listed above. They will inspect essential parts and overall condition of the system. They will also take a look at whether or not the system has been updated to meet more current standards.

Proper Maintenance is the Key to Pass Home Insurance Inspection

This inspection can give you an idea of possible areas you need to update and/or repair in order to rectify any disqualifying areas. If insurance is denied, or severely limited, or overly expensive, you can request from the insurance carrier’s underwriter any actions that you might be able to take to improve or obtain a suitable insurance policy.

Examining the Exterior of Your Home Involves 4 Key Areas


You should know what a home inspection involves when it comes to the exterior of your house. It may not cover everything that you think it does.

First, know that an exterior home inspection is a visual inspection only.  If something is not visible and easily accessible from the ground level, the inspector will not include it in his report.

Second, an exterior home inspection focuses on the house primarily. It may not include all the structures on the property. You will want to discuss any outbuildings, pools, and other structures you may want to include with your home inspector. He may help you decide whether or not those structures are relevant to the purpose for the inspection.

Third, prepare your home for the inspection. As the inspection only covers what is easily visible and accessible, you should prepare the property as best you can to make the inspector’s job easier. Move obstructions such as, outdoor furniture, lawn and garden equipment, tools, or outdoor decorations. If you have vegetation growing near the exterior of the home, it may limit what the inspector can see (that may or may not be an issue). Move any cars out of the way, as much as possible.

An Exterior Home Inspection Looks at 4 Key Areas

The home inspector will only take a look at areas that are easily accessible and visible. Their report will point out areas that may be deficient in some way. The report is not a guarantee nor does it predict the future. There are 4 key areas that the exterior home inspector will focus on:

  • Exterior walls, doors, and windows. Specifically exterior wall cladding/siding, flashing, and trim. The inspector is not required to look at window and door screening, shutters, awnings, or other seasonal or similarly protective accessories or devices.
  • Exterior structures. This includes attached decks, porches, balconies, stoops, steps, and their associated railings. It may also include garages and carports. It does not necessarily include any other outbuildings, recreational buildings, swimming pools, fences or other items (such as sea walls, break-walls, boat lifts or docks).
  • Roof elements that are easily visible. The home inspector is not required to scale a ladder and so the only items he will focus on near the roof are items easily visible from the ground level: eaves, soffits, and/or fascias.
  • Surrounding walkways, driveways, and patios. The exterior home inspection typically covers any walkways, driveways, or patios that lead to the home itself.

 If any deficiencies are found upon a visual inspection of the home’s exterior, the inspector will provide you with reasons why they deemed that item deficient or near the end of its service life. They may provide you with recommendations for correction and/or monitoring.

If you have any questions on what type of home inspection service you need, please contact us.

Home Inspection Checklist on What to Inspect and What Not

^D6169CD320BDA954D6FA721623C8FAF3293386EE3DC9C33A5B^pimgpsh_fullsize_distrBuying a home is one of the most exciting, important, and expensive investments to make. A critical process that requires careful consideration. The house you decide to buy will have to meet your needs in terms of desired location, aesthetics and layout, and cost.

That doesn’t even cover the “health” of the building. Checking on the building’s structure and systems requires professional help. Often this pre-purchase inspection will give the prospective buyer information on how certain elements of the property stand up, what might need repair now, and what might need repair in the near future. This information allows the buyer to make an informed decision in the purchase and arms them for negotiations with the seller.

The International Association of Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) has set a standard inspection checklist that outlines what should be covered by licensed home inspectors in a pre-purchase home inspection.

Structural Elements. Foundation check or any evidence of sagging or bowing of the structure and window alignment.

Grounds. Possible leaks that may occur from the septic tank and drainage, as well as, the condition of driveways, fences, and sidewalks.

Roof. Condition of the roof covering; any repairs/patches to flat roofs; clear vents; damage to chimneys; and properly working gutters.

Exterior surfaces. Correct clearance between ground and sliding material; condition of exterior paint or siding; and properly working lights and electrical outlets.

Attic. Proper insulation and ventilation, with no sign of leaking or water damage.

Interior Plumbing. Covers damaged or leaking pipes, water temperature installation, toilet, bathtubs, and showers.

Electrical System. Up-to-code condition and type of visible wiring, and proper function of circuit breakers, outlets, light fixtures, and fans.

Appliances. Functioning stove, dishwashers, refrigerator, microwave, washer and dryer, and all other household appliances.

Heating and cooling systems. Ensures working furnace, air conditioning, water heater, chimney, and and fireplace.

Basement. Solid foundation, walls, and floors, with no signs of water intrusion or damage.

Garage. Solid foundation, windows, ceiling, framing, and roof; working garage door opener; up-to-code electrical system; and proper function of outlets.

There are areas, however, that are not covered by a standard inspection, which should also be considered like pest control, swimming pools, asbestos, radon gas, lead paint, and toxic mold.

Guard your investment. Hire professionally trained and qualified home inspectors from The South Florida Home Inspection Associates.

Find and Destroy Mold BEFORE it Destroys Your Home!


Mold is one of the most common forms of fungi and can be destructive for various surfaces. Mold testing will help you determine if you have mold at your home. The presence of mold in your home can cause serious health problems for some people. The damage to surfaces can also be significant.

Mold Signs.

The first sign indicating the presence of mold is the smell. Even if you do not see it, there is probably mold hidden somewhere. Mold testing will help you localize it.

Having allergy symptoms might also be a sign of mold hidden in your home – there could be mold spores in the air. Moreover, every time you breathe, they cause an allergic reaction such as a runny nose, sneezing and sore eyes. These symptoms indicate that you should have a mold test performed in your home as soon as possible.

Why you Should Undertake Mold Testing.

It will help you to determine if you have a mold problem, and if so, how hazardous that mold is. You can purchase a do it yourself mold test, but it is much better to use the services of a qualified mold inspector. Only an expert can professionally collect and analyze of the samples from within your home.

Since this test provides you with a snapshot of the amount of mold particles within a period, samples have to be taken from different locations within the home. There are three types of mold tests: air, bulk, and surface mold testing. Combining all three of them will offer the best results.

Mold Inspection before Having your Home Tested.

A mold inspection needs to be done before any testing. If the inspection shows that there is mold in your home, recommendations on removal procedures may be obtained. If testing shows that the mold infestation is of the toxic variety, then professional help is recommended for the mold removal.

South Florida Home Inspection Associates offers professional mold testing and inspection services. If you have mold in your home, we will help you find it. We will help you to confirm that you live in a healthy home.

A Home Inspection for My Brand New House?

Do I Need a Home Inspection for My Brand New House?

A Home Inspection for My Brand New House?

YES! You need a home inspection for your new house. Even new constructions still have defects. Moreover, this may lead to many problems in the future, and the repair bill is often costly. Construction flaws might appear during the building of the house, even if the best builders work for you.

After the general inspection, some other inspections may be necessary. These are usually inspections of the foundation, roof, plumbing, electrical installation, and others as required.

The home inspector usually starts their inspection on the roof. Then, every major house system should be checked – the plumbing, septic, electrical, heating installations, and so on.

Why have a Home Inspection?

Only the report of a home inspector can guarantee the quality of construction. If possible, you should get an inspection on a new build before the sheetrock goes up. Thus, you will be able to demand that the builder fix any issues that would otherwise be covered up. A final home inspection is essential before closing on the property.

What Will a Home Inspector Do for You?

Understanding the difference between the various kinds of inspectors and inspections is essential. The city or county building inspectors will only check for code violations, the quality of the work is of no interest to them. Licensed home inspectors have a checklist that cover slightly different areas. For more information what home inspectors do during this kind of inspection, please read this article.

Never allow builders to fool you into thinking that an inspection is not necessary. A detailed inspection significantly reduces the risk of buying a new home with problems. Repairing them in the future may be problematic, not to mention costly. Take precautions early and hire a house inspector to ensure that everything in your new home is stable and safe.

South Florida Home Inspection Associates will provide you with professional home inspection services. Our expert house inspectors are members of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI). We have a special home inspection specifically designed for new home builds, contact us for more information.

Why Flipped Homes Need Home Inspection?

The purpose of a home inspection is to give you an expert opinion about the structural and functional components of the house based upon a visual examination. Flipped houses need a home inspection because they are bought and sold quickly to make huge profits. Most investors purchase shabby houses, make quick and cheap repairs and conceal serious defects under attractive cover-ups. A home inspection points out the existing and potential issues with the home to help you proceed carefully.7694487

Your home inspector examines the following things to detect underlying issues-

Structure of the House

Your home inspector will look for structural defects with the home such as uneven floors, cracking in the exterior brick or substandard finish work inside the home and inform you about the same.


You might fall for shiny and fascinating interiors- newly installed light fixtures, new carpets, switches and windows-but your home inspector will notice the drawbacks. A seemingly new and perfect kitchen with new/repainted cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops might not be that perfect! Cabinet doors / drawers might be getting blocked by other cabinets. Appliances might not have an outlet to plug them in to. Bathrooms that have been redone might have vanity cabinets that are too small for the space.

Electrical System

According to Reuben Saltzman, Structure Tech Home Inspections, “I don’t find many electrical problems on flipped houses.  Even the worst home flippers usually know better than to mess with the electrical; they don’t want their houses to burn down.”Electricals in a flipped home are usually fine.

Heating System

The flipped home might have an outdated and unsafe heating system at the end of its life expectancy.  Reuben Saltzman says, “I’ve found furnaces and boilers creating high levels of carbon monoxide that the heating contractors said were fine.”

Air Conditioning

Investors usually put up a new AC if they are selling a flipped home in summer while in winter they just leave the old, defective AC as such.

Plumbing System

Your home inspector will inform you about serious issues with the drains such as leaks and clogged drains at the kitchen sink, and probably at other locations.


Shingles on the roof might be in a pathetic state. Flippers usually don’t replace the roof covering as it is expensive but doesn’t fetch more value for the home.

Rodent & Pest Home Inspections

Rodent & Pest Home Inspections in South Florida

Rodent & Pest Home Inspections Rodents can intrude into the comfort of your home whenever they get a chance. They spread diseases, invade your home, render your food unfit for consumption, and in some cases they can even cause fires. The best way out is to contact a reliable home inspection service in South Florida to eliminate these unpleasant creatures as soon as you notice them in your home.

Why Rodent and Pest Inspection is Important

  1. It Protects You from Diseases

Rodents spread several diseases both directly and indirectly such as:

  • Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome
  • Hemorrhagic fever with renal; syndrome
  • Lassa fever
  • Leptospirosis
  • Lymphocytic chorio-meningitis
  • Plague
  • Babesiosis
  • Colorado tick fever
  • Human granulocytic anaplasmosis
  • Lyme disease
  • Murine typhus

A reputable rodent and pest inspection service frees your home from rodents and protects you, your family, and your pets from these life-threatening diseases.

  1. It Restores the Beauty and Hygiene of Your Home

A home infested by nauseating creatures such as rodents loses its beauty, hygiene and quality. Everywhere you notice bits of chewed up things, urine, droppings, and a repulsive odour. It can become uncomfortable to live in a home full of this type of thing. A rodent and pest inspection done at the very onset of invasion into your home can remove these offensive animals and critters from your home and bring it back in its original quality state.

  1. It Ensures Your Food is Not Contaminated

When you have rodents in your home, it’s important to realize that your food may not be fit for consumption. Rodents will pollute your food to some extent and that is simply unacceptable. A genuine home inspection service in South Florida ensures the complete elimination of rodents from your home so that your food is no more contaminated.

  1. It Protects Against Fires Caused by Rodents

Rodents can also cause fires by chewing away the insulation on electric wires and exposing the wiring to wood or other flammable materials. This is a serious threat to your home, family, and pets. A rodent home inspection safeguards you against any prospective fires caused by rodents by setting your home free from them.

The Best Time for a Rodent/Pest Inspection is either the colder months when they are largely dormant or at the onset of warmer months when they start resuming their activity and reproduction.
