As home inspectors we are perform a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. We prepare and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase.
We describe the condition of the home at the time of inspection but do not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components. We determine the condition of a structure, whereas an appraiser determines the value of a property.
