What is a good or bad inspection

What is a good home inspection or a bad home inspection? An inspector can never say whether a home inspection is either good or bad because there is no perfect home in relation to whether the home has defects. Even a brand new construction home has at least some defects. When you have human interaction in the process there is a higher chance of errors than if it was generated by a machine and homes are built primarily by people so expect some issues.

There is no such thing as a good or bad house inspection; rather, there is a good and bad risk in not having a home inspection conducted. A few hundred dollars can save you thousands of dollars in the long run if you avoid a safety/health concern that may arise on the property. I'd gladly pay a few hundred dollars. I mean, these are the largest transactions most people will ever make in their lives. Why not pay a few hundred dollars for peace of mind on a purchase worth hundreds of thousands of dollars?

So if I had to really say what is a good home inspection, it would meet the following requirements:

  1. A qualified home inspector is hired to perform the home inspection when the contract is executed

  2. The home inspector shows up on time, performs the inspection, and gives a debrief of the property to the clients at the end of the inspection

  3. The home inspector is available for follow up questions after delivering the report in a reasonable time

  4. The client feels that they have received a sufficient amount of information to be able to make the decisions they need to move forward with the purchase.
