Home Buying Guide - Home Inspection

Step 7: Assuming you come to an agreement on price, get a home inspection.

​Once the offer is accepted, you will need to get a home inspection. A home inspection is an assessment of the home’s condition. It typically takes about an hour and a report will be generated for you. The analysis will report whether the home is in good condition with minor or no repairs, or that the home needs major repairs. You can continue your negotiations based on the home inspection report. TIP: We recommend that you go to the inspection. Your realtor typically goes to the home inspection as well. You can schedule a home inspection or your real estate agent can schedule one for you.
