During the final process of buying or selling a home lenders and insurance companies will require that a home inspection be performed. This inspection is to help ensure that both the buyer is protected from buying a lemon of a house or property and the seller isn’t hiding obvious flaws and trying to inflate the asking price of said property. To ensure that both parties are protected an inspector with a valid home inspection license in Las Vegas, NV can look at your home, determine if it is up to code and sign off on the sale and purchase of the property.
Now that you understand what is going on, how can we ensure that we pass an inspection on the first try? Well, that is a good question. What you could do is call and pay for a private inspection beforehand and with the results make any improvements and changes before the final inspection is made. This can cost a little bit of extra money; however, it can save you in the long run.
You can do a self-inspection where you look at the windows, doors, walls, electrical and plumbing yourself and see if there are anything that stands out to you. If so, you can then hire a professional to come in, do a detailed inspection and again have those areas fixed.
When it comes to an inspection and passing on the first try just keeping up with your home repairs, maintenance and improvements will help you pass. If you do any work on your home, make sure that you have all the proper paperwork and permits filed with the city. If you don’t and it is discovered, you may have to tear it out which can cause delays and even reduced value to your home.
