“Buyers should know that a home inspection report isn’t a check list for sellers of things to do,” says Wayne Turner, Broker/Owner of Turner Real Estate Group.
The home inspection is done once a buyer finds a home, submits an offer that’s accepted, and the home goes under contract. The purpose of the inspection is for the buyer to get the report showing the condition of everything in the home. The summary page is where everything in the full report is summarized. The length will depend on the age and condition of the home.
The report will tell you when things like your water heater or AC are “running past their life expectancy” which means that it’s older, but doesn’t necessarily mean it’s broken. It’s more like just a heads up that this item could potentially go out at some point as it’s running past it’s life expectancy.
However, don’t fret! There are many items that run way past their life expectancy for a long period of time before giving out. We at Turner Real Estate Group can also negotiate for the seller to provide you a home warranty on the home you purchase, to help cover these types of things should they happen to go out after the home sale.
