What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is a visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from the foundation to its roof.  An inspection is the equivalent of a physical examination from your doctor.  When problems or symptoms of problems are found, the Inspector will recommend further evaluation using a contractor or specialist.

Back to Top

Why do I need a home inspection?

No home is perfect!  A home inspection summarizes the condition of a property, points out and identifies areas that may need attention now or in the near future.  An inspection helps buyers and sellers to maximize their knowledge of the property in order to make informed and educated decisions before executing an agreement for sale or purchase.  After an inspection, both parties will have a much clearer understanding of the value and needs of the property.

For long term homeowners, an inspection may be used to identify problems in the making and to learn about preventive measures, which might avoid costly future repairs.  If you are planning to sell your home sometime in the future, an inspection prior to placing your home on the market provides a better understanding of conditions which may be discovered by the buyer's Inspector, and provides you an opportunity to make repairs that will make your home more desirable to potential buyers.

How do I choose a Home Inspector?

There are some good Home Inspectors out there, but there are some that are not.  Some lack the education, experience, are not licensed, and only do the minimum.  Home Inspectors must follow requirements that are established in the Standards of Practice of the NC Home Inspector Licensure Board.  These requirements are minimum standards meaning that a Home Inspector is not required to inspect everything in a home (example:  All electrical outlets, windows, doors to name a few). 

At Chosen Home Inspections, we go beyond the minimum by inspecting systems and components that are accessible and visible.   It's important for us to know that your inspection is thorough.  After all, you are paying for a service and we want to make sure that you are getting your money's worth. 

Having PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE as a Home Inspector is essential in the home inspection business.  Having a license in other fields such as building or contracting doesn't necessarily mean he or she knows how and what to look for as a Home Inspector.

Can a home fail an inspection?

No.  There is no 'pass or fail' during an inspection.  A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of the home.  It is not an appraisal, which determines market value, or a municipal inspection, which verifies compliance to local codes and standards.  The Home Inspector will describe the physical condition of the home and indicate what may need repair or replacement.

Back to Top

When do I get the report?

We will email the report within 24 hours of the inspection.  If you don't have an email address, we will either deliver or mail the report to you.  If you are present at the inspection, we will discuss the findings at the completion of the inspection.

Back to Top

What kind of report can I expect?

Your report will be computer automated and it will come with digital pictures under the discrepancies to help illustrate problems.  Your report will be detailed yet easy to read.

CLICK HERE to review a sample report.

When and how do I schedule an inspection?

You can call us 7 days a week with no restrictions of the time you call.  You can also request your inspection online through our website.  We do not have company set times to perform your inspection and we only do two inspections a day so we can spend sufficient time doing the inspection and spending time with you, the client.  Let us know what time is good for you and we will accommodate you the best way we can.   

CLICK HERE to request your inspection.

How much does an inspection cost?

How do I pay for the inspection?

You can pay at the inspection by cash, check, or credit card.  If you wish to pay by credit card and you can not attend the inspection, you can call us with the information.  We offer a few discounts.  Click on the link below to see how "Chosen" can save you money!

Back to Top

What will the inspection cover?

A thorough inspection covers everything from the foundation to the roof and things in between. 

CLICK HERE to see the inspection process.

Back to Top

How long will the inspection last?

Inspections take a minimum of 2 hours to perform.  Time is based on the size, age, and condition of the home. 

Back to Top

Should I be present during the inspection?

We know your time is valuable.  Based on the time it takes for us to inspect a home, we recommend that you be present towards the end of the inspection so we can discuss any issues with you.  If you like to be there for the entire inspection or you are unable to attend, that will be okay too.  Please let your Inspector know what your plans are.

Back to Top

Will weather conditions be a factor when performing an inspection?

It can depending on the type of inspection and how bad or what type of weather it is.  During an Indoor Air Quality test, weather should be good with minimum wind because an outside sample must be taken.  Light to moderate rain is okay during a home inspection but ideally, good weather conditions should be present so the roof covering can be thoroughly inspected.  Snowy conditions tend to be an issue because we can't perform a thorough inspection of the roof covering.  If bad conditions won't warrant an inspection, we will call you and ask to reschedule.

Back to Top

Is a home inspection a guarantee or warranty?

During a home inspection, components and systems are checked at the time of the inspection.  No inspection company or Inspector can guarantee that a component or system won't fail in the future no matter how long ago that inspection took place.

Back to Top

What if the report reveals issues or problems? 

No home is perfect!  I have never found a perfect home (even new construction) in my years of being in the business.  Your report most likely will address issues or problems with the home.  Fortunately, most of the issues will probably be minor in nature.  I will ensure your report provides direction in what should be done and I will also help you verbally on this matter.  The important thing to remember is that no home is perfect and to keep things in perspective. 

CLICK HERE for inspection process.

Back to Top

Is there anything I need to do prior to the inspection?

Yes.  We need for you to review and sign a company contract before we can do the inspection.  Having a contract is a requirement from the NC Home Inspector Licensure Board. 

CLICK HERE for inspection process.

Back to Top

Why can't I have someone in my family who is very handy or a contractor, inspect my home or a new home I'm buying?

Although the person you are considering to do your inspection may be very skilled, this is one of the biggest mistakes some potential new homeowners or owners make.  The home inspection business is a unique profession like no other and requires extensive training and experience.  Home Inspectors often see issues that others may not see or others may not think is a problem or concern.

Back to Top

If the house proves to be in good condition, did I really need an inspection? 

Yes.  As a buyer, seller, or even a long term owner, you can now have confidence about the condition of the property.  From the inspection, you will have learned many things about your home, and will want to keep that information for future reference.

 Back to Top

Can I call you after the inspection if I have questions?

Absolutely!  You can call us whenever you like.  We are always here to help you anyway we can!
