What is a home maintenance inspection?
A home maintenance inspection will clear up any concerns you have about the health of your house. Just like at a pre-purchase inspection or a pre-listing home inspection your inspector will walk you through the home, showing you what was found and explaining what it means. You should have a chance to ask questions or get clarifications, and usually, the inspector will point out things you should be doing regularly to keep all of your home's systems functioning in tiptop shape.
What is included in a home maintenance inspection?
A home maintenance inspection is similar to pre-purchase and pre-listing inspections. The professional home inspector will take you through your home and assess the major structural components and systems of your home. From there, your home inspector will identify any red flags or issues of the home.
Then, in a few days, you'll get a written report detailing everything the inspector found. Only in this case, instead of asking the seller to fix or pay for the things on your list, you're the one in charge of tackling the to-do list. Think of it as an itemized punch list to address whenever you choose.
