What to Expect


Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take from two to three hours.
Ideally, you will accompany your inspector during the consultation.

Your professional home inspector should provide you with both a verbal report,
as part of a whole house walk-through, and a written report after the inspection is completed.

Many home inspectors also provide free telephone consultations for as long as you own your home.
