Why should I have a home inspection?

A home purchase is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. A home inspection provides you with the information you need to feel more confident in your decision. An Apple Tree Home Inspection will provide you with a detailed, objective report of the home’s condition so you can be aware of what you are about to invest in.

Do new or recently built homes need to be inspected?

Absolutely. Defects in workmanship, improper use of building materials, appliance recalls, inadequate home improvements and non-professional repairs are just a few of the problems that can be detected in any age home.

How should I prepare for an inspection?

Make sure the inspector can access all areas of the house. Clear all furniture, boxes, etc., and other items that may block access to the furnace, water heater, electrical panels, attic crawl spaces, under sinks, etc.

How long does the inspection take?

A typical inspection of a single-family property lasts approximately two to four hours (less for townhouses and condominiums).

Do I need to be present at the time of the inspection?

Yes, we strongly encourage all of our clients to accompany us during the inspection. You should feel free to ask the inspector any questions you may have during the inspection process. The inspector will point out problems and explain them to you. The inspector will also show you the good points of the home as well. Plus, we will explain what routine maintenance is needed to keep the home in top condition.

What is included in the home inspection report?

Your home inspection report is narrative, detailed, informative and extremely thorough. The report outlines all major areas of the home including heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roofing and more.

Can a home/ building fail inspection?

No. A professional home inspection is an evaluation of the current condition of your prospective home. It is not an appraisal, which determines market value, or a municipal inspection, which verifies local code compliance. A home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but rather describe its physical condition and indicate any deficiencies found.

What if the report reveals problems?

No house is perfect. If the inspector identifies deficiencies, it doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't buy the house, only that you will have knowledge of existing issues before you close instead of afterwards. A seller may adjust the purchase price or contract terms if major problems are found. If move-in condition and minimal maintenance are important factors in your purchase decision, this information will be helpful to you as well.

How and when will I receive my report?

In most cases your report will be ready within 1-2 days  of  the inspection.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We currently take cash, check, and PayPal (for credit cards usage)
