Highlands NC Real Estate Transactions Include Home Inspections


Highlands NC real estate

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands NC real estate

Highlands NC real estate transactions include home inspections.  The home inspection is important, very important.  This will enable a buyer to understand the condition of a home.  This helps avoid finding the unexpected when taking possession.  Choosing the right inspector is important and equally important is understanding what is included in a Highlands NC home inspection.

Your Highlands NC REALTOR will help you find a reputable home inspector.  Your inspector will share a checklist with you that will outline what will be examined.  There are some items that may need further analysis, in which case a specialist may be required.

What is not covered by a typical home inspection? A thorough chimney inspection for one thing.  Your inspector will do a basic check to see that the flue opens and a quick peek looking up.  But, to find out how much creosote exists you will probably need to hire a professional chimney/fireplace inspector.

Another thing an inspector will not do is move furniture.  This may mean a vent won’t get inspected or an outlet won’t get checked. It also could mean that you miss an issue with flooring.  Items that may require further inspection or testing by a specialist include mold, radon, or the foundation.
