Home Inspection Checklist

What Will Happen during a Home Inspection?

  • Your home inspector will check the following systems in your home: plumbing, electric, heating and cooling, and structural components such as roof and foundation.
  • A written report will be provided at the end of the inspection with the results of the condition of the home.
  • A home inspection generally takes two to four hours, depending on the size of the home.

What Specific Areas of the Home Will Be Inspected?

Below is a comprehensive checklist of what areas the home inspector will be checking:

  • Heating system
  • Central air conditioning
  • Interior plumbing
  • Electrical systems
  • Walls
  • Ceilings
  • Floors
  • Windows and doors
  • Attic
  • Visible insulation
  • Basement
  • Roof
  • Foundation
  • Any other structural components

What Should I Do during the Home Inspection?

In order to gain the most knowledge from the home, we recommend that all future homeowners take an active part in the process:

  • Attend the inspection, if your schedule permits. It’s expected that you will ask questions along the way as you come across any issues in the home.
  • Both minor and major issues will be noted in detail on the report. Most of the minor issues will be inexpensive items you can repair after you move in. Pay special attention to the major issues the home inspector lists on the report, as these can make all the difference in whether you actually purchase the home.
  • Review the inspection report with your real estate agent. A trusted and experienced agent will know the specific red flags to look for if there are any listed on the report.
