Inspection Times Vary
Inspectors take just a few hours to tour the home and perform the inspection, but it may take a few days to receive the report.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development says most home inspectors provide their reports within 24 hours.
Can the seller be at the home inspection?
The sellers should not be present during the home inspection for all the same reasons the sellers aren’t present for showings. Buyers will often have questions about defects during the inspection which can only be answered out of earshot of the seller, as the buyer owns the information from the home inspection.
How long do you have to get home inspection?
two to four hours
What happens when home inspection fails?
A home inspection is an integral part of the house-purchasing process. Buyers are able to withdraw their offer if they don’t like the findings. If the house inspector discovers a leak in the plumbing that resulted in mold growth, numerous purchasers might want to bail even if the seller fixed the issue.
Do I have to fix everything on a home inspection?
And rest assured, there’s no need for you to fix everything a home inspector thinks could stand for improvement; a home inspection report is not a to-do list.
Who is present for a home inspection?
The Buyer. In many cases, the buyer or the buyer’s real estate agent will be present for the inspection. It is typically to the buyer’s benefit that he or she is present.
