Buyer Inspections (pre-purchase)


A home inspection is a primarily visual, not technically exhaustive, process where of the items typically used within the home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, electrical outlets and main service panel inspected, water heaters inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems inspected. The inspector will run water at the sinks, tub(s), shower(s) and flush the toilet(s). All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested.

The goal of the inspection is to reduce some of the risks involved in your real estate transaction by putting you in a better position to make informed decisions concerning the property. However, it will not eliminate all the risks of purchasing the home. The inspection is a general guide that allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party and provides you with some objective information to help you make your own evaluation of the overall condition of the home. It is not intended to reflect the value of the property, or to make any representation as to the advisability of purchase.

ALLIN Home Inspections, Inc. endeavors to perform all inspections in substantial compliance with the International Standards of Practice of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). As such, we inspect the readily accessible, visually observable, installed systems and components of the home as designated in the Internatioal Standards.
