What is a home inspection?
In short a home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation.
Why You Should Have A Home Inspection:
“The fact is, you should get a home inspection because buying a home may be the single largest purchase and investment you will make during your lifetime and you need to do everything in your power to protect that investment”.
The average buyer pays between $150,000 and $350,000 for a home. The inspection fee is not only the single best value of all your home purchasing costs, it is the best way to determine if you are making a sound decision that makes financial sense.
Every home will have somethings that need repair and maintenance, that’s just a fact of ownership, the question is what items, what are their costs and when do they need to be done. Knowing there are going to be costs for maintenance and non-critical repairs is understandable, but thousands of dollars of costs to replace roofs, equipment or structural repairs in the near future may seriously tax your ability to own the home. People default on their homes this way or at the least end up living under sub-standard conditions because they can’t afford the repairs.
You should never give up your right to walk away from a home purchase, because the seller’s disclosure can often be inaccurate, misleading or missing critical information. Having a home inspection is always in your best interest, don’t ever let anyone make you believe otherwise.
What really matters in a home inspection.
Are you buying, selling or refinancing a manufactured home? Then you may need a manufactured home engineering certification:
If you are selling or buying a manufactured home, then most likely a foundation certification will be required. For all FHA and VA loans, an engineer’s foundation certification is required that states that the home is placed on a permanent foundation that complies with the “HUD Permanent Foundation Guide for Manufactured Homes”, dated 1996 by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
What is a HUD Permanent Foundation Inspection?
The purpose a HUD engineering foundation inspection is to conduct a structural inspection for determining:
If the manufactured home is permanently tied down.
That the manufactured home would not move off the piers or foundation.
That the drainage around the manufactured home will not flood the crawlspace or basement.
