Understanding Home Inspections

Home inspections are valuable because they provide an unbiased report revealing the property’s condition. Ultimately they save you money and protect your investment by uncovering dangerous defects and identifying small problems that could lead to major damage if not addressed.  And they recommend repairs according to up-to-date safety standards.

No, you don’t need to be present.  Most clients prefer a brief property walkthrough summarizing the inspection findings. The final report will be delivered digitally.

No. Home inspections are not legally required for real estate transactions in Washington state. However, they’re strongly recommended to protect homebuyers from money pits. Like getting a used car examined by a mechanic to make sure you’re not getting a lemon.

Homebuyers get inspections to uncover defects before purchasing the home.

Sellers get “pre-listing inspections” to identify problems that may prevent the home from selling.

Landlords get home inspections to ensure tenants aren’t destroying their property and to identify repairs and maintenance.

A water test during a home inspection can be the deciding factor. Bacteria and nitrates are the most common contaminations. Other concerns include excessive arsenic, lead, fluoride, and more. The Health Department recommends testing tap water every few years, whether supplied by a private well or public system. See more on water testing here.
