The buyer typically pays for a home inspection because they are doing due diligence on their end.

A home inspection typically lasts two to two and a half hours, but the actual time can vary depending on the size of the home and its components. Smaller properties, like condos, can take half the time of a house. Inspection reports usually take one to two days to complete.

No. The primary task of the home inspector is to look for and discover defects in construction, materials, and installations. 

Home inspectors are not allowed to move large equipment and furniture or items inside drawers, cabinets, or closets to avoid liability in the event of damaged property.

If You Are a Home Buyer: Yes, absolutely! A home inspection reveals the flaws of a property, and can save you from buying a poorly maintainted home.

If You Are a Home Seller: Not really. But, a pre-listing inspection report can be used as a home improvement guide. You can fix identified issues and stage the property to get maximum cash for your house.
