Of course you can do the inspection yourself but, it's not recommended.  Even buyers with significant construction and building experience will find it hard to be impartial about a home they have decided to purchase.   Most buyers are looking for reasons to purchase their prospective home.  

At Home One Property Inspections, we have done thousands of inspections and had hundreds of hours of training and continuing education to help recognize current and potential defects in the systems and components of your future homeNot only are we trained in and familiar with the components of a home, proper installation methods and necessary maintenance routines but we have also developed and perfected a systematic approach in evaluating all aspects of a home.  This way, no stone is left unturned. 

You can purchase everything you need to paint your own automobile, fix your own roof, and even rewire your house.  The one thing you CANNOT purchase is knowledge and experience.  Please call a professional home inspector because
it's just not worth the risk!
What Really Matters?
Buying a home … The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often includes a written report, checklists, photographs, environmental reports, and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do?

Relax … You are about to hire the best home Consulting / Inspection Company in the area. We are Professionally Trained, State Licensed, and Nationally Certified to complete the inspection task at hand. You will be presented a state of the art comprehensive computerized inspection report with many color digital photos that are emailed to you.  Also, you will receive many other materials that you will enjoy and will assist you with in the home buying process and future maintenance of the property.

Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:                     

1.Major defects. An example of this would be a structural failure.
2.Things that lead to major defects. A small roof-flashing leak, for example.
3.Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home.
4.Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel.
Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4).

Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Don't kill your deal over things that don't matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure, or nit-picky items.
