Should I hire a retired or unemployed code official or building contractor?
It is common for out of work and unemployable building contractors, building inspectors and code officials to get into the home inspection business due to the ease of entry into the business. These are probably the worst type of inspectors to hire because of their limited focus. They concentrate on what they are experienced at but are not aware and educated like a Certified Master Inspector®. Also, why would you want to hire someone who couldn’t hack it in their original profession? They should be able to make a lot more money building homes than inspecting them. This should raise many red flags about this type of inspector.
What is the Accurate Inspections Buyer’s Protection Guarantee?
We understand that buying a house can be stressful! We understand and offer a $100 discount on your next home inspection in the unlikely event you do not purchase the first house we inspect for you.
Can I attend the inspection?
Absolutely! We recommend meeting the inspector at the end of the inspection if you have time. This is a valuable opportunity to hear from the inspector directly what safety issues or deficiencies were found as well as any useful maintenance tips. It is not recommended to bring children or pets, if possible. Our insurance and Standards of Practice do not allow anyone to follow us during the inspection as some areas of the inspection may be dangerous, but you may want check out the house while we are inspecting. If you cannot be present at the inspection, no problem! Our reports are very thorough and easy to understand with many pictures included. The inspector will call you to go over report after you have received it.
How long does the inspection last?
Most home inspections last 2-3 hours but vary based on square footage, age, exterior buildings/guest houses, crawlspaces, amount of deficiencies and other factors. On average, a home inspection lasts 1 hour/1,000 square feet.
Should I Perform My Own Inspection?
Inspecting your own home is not recommended. Home Inspectors are professionals who are trained to look for things you may miss. You need someone who is unbiased and not emotionally or otherwise attached to the home or sale of the property.
When Will I Receive the Inspection Report?
We guarantee the report the day after inspection but normally have the report by the end of the day the the inspection was completed. If you need report in a hurry, please let us know. You should be cautious of inspectors offering inspection reports on site or very soon after inspection as those reports are not thorough and normally only meet the minimum standards.
How much does the inspection cost?
“Home inspections are an indispensable part of the home-buying process. Buying a home without one is the same as buying a car without even kicking the tires. Considering how much an inspection can save you by avoiding potential disasters, it’s money well spent.”
Choosing an inspector based on price is one of the worst reasons to hire an inspector as there is always someone willing to be cheaper. These types of inspectors only meet the minimum standards of a home inspection which could mean a lot will get missed. Prices for home inspections vary greatly, not only locally but regionally. An Inspector that has a long and verifiable history of exceeding their clients expectations commands a higher fee than an inspector who is less qualified. The inspectors length of time in business, reputation, variety of services offered, qualifications such as Certified Master Inspector®, verifiable customer reviews (not google which can be faked easily), Better Business Bureau® ratings and reviews, any guarantees or warranties the inspector/inspection company offers, should all be considered before deciding on an inspector or inspection company. Some inspectors hire assistants that are not licensed inspectors which may result in something being missed on your inspection. CMI® Toby Kilgore completes your inspection from start to finish. Accurate Inspections of NWFL home inspection fees start at only $317, but vary based on square footage, age of home, presence of pool, exterior buildings/guest houses, pier/seawall, crawlspace, pier/pylons, and other considerations. Please call us today for an individualized quote. Unlike other inspection companies we do not “nickel and dime” our customers with hidden fees or upcharges after inspection.
Is the Home Inspection a Pass or Fail Inspection?
The inspection is meant to show you what needs to be repaired on the house and any safety issues that may exist. A home inspection is not a pass or fail type of inspection.
What Do I Do If Any Repair or Safety Items Are Found?
There is a possibility that repair and safety items may come up as a result of the inspection, this is normal. The seller of the home is not required to repair any of the problems that an inspector finds. The repair items can be negotiated before the home is purchased. We recommend hiring a realtor to help with this process as they are an invaluable professional resource (just like a home inspector) during any real estate transaction.
