Home inspection reports can be confusing, but they don’t have to be! Here’s a quick guide from the experts at Big Moose Home Inspections on how to understand your home inspection report.

Reading Your Home Inspection Report

This quick guide can help you get the most out of your home inspection report.

Look at the Condition of the Property

Take a look at the overall condition of the property. The inspector will usually include a general statement about the condition of the home, both positive and negative observations. For example, the home inspector might say that the property is well-maintained and in good condition overall.

Check for Specifc Issues

Take a look at the specific items that were noted in the report. The inspector will list any major concerns, as well as any minor issues that they observed. For each issue, the report will include a description of the problem, as well as a recommendation for how to fix it. In some cases, the home inspector may also include photos of any problems that were observed. These can be helpful in understanding the severity of the issue, as well as the recommended course of action.

Be Thorough

Finally, be sure to read through the entire report carefully. Home inspection reports can be long, but it’s important to understand all of the information that is included.
