Why Get A Home


A home purchase is probably the largest and most important investment your family will ever make. Protecting that investment is important, and it is an inexpensive way to learn the condition of your home. If you are planning to buy or sell a home in Jacksonville, FL, we recommend hiring a professional and certified home inspector to conduct the inspection. A good comprehensive inspection will identify any problems such as plumbing, wiring, heating & air conditioning, insulation, roof or structural issues with the home before you buy or sell.

Searching for your home can be an enjoyable experience, but before deciding on one in particular, make sure it’s a worthwhile investment. Buying a home is a process that should be properly planned with seriously considerations.

When you are checking out a home, pay attention to the way it looks, smells, and feels. Anything that seems strange could be a potential red flag. And if there is noticeable damage that isn’t a problem now, it could turn into a very expensive problem later. Things like roof damage or just an old or poorly maintained roof could lead to leaks, water damage, and mold. There may already be water damage in the home that you can’t see visibly but there might be an odor that gives it away.

Problems with the roof, HVAC, electrical, and plumbing issues are something you want to know about before purchasing a property. Current issues with the property and potentially expensive repairs don’t have to be a deal breaker. They can leverage your negotiating power and help you get a lower price for your home. Most home buyers agree that it’s worth spending a few hundred on a home inspection to save a few thousand.

Home Inspection


The cost of a home inspection depends on the size and age of the house, plus any add-ons like pools, external structures, etc. There are new inspectors who charge less but with most home inspection companies, generally you can expect to pay about $350-500 for a basic home inspection, not including any add-ons.

The buyer usually pays for a home inspection because it’s part of the “due diligence” of buying a home. However, the buyer may be able to negotiate for the seller to cover some of the costs of the home inspection as part of the “seller concessions”.

Yes, closing costs are estimated by real estate agents and include every additional cost that goes along with buying a home. However, payment for the home inspection is due when it is done – not at closing.

Yes, home inspectors check all of the major appliances and built-in appliances that will be sold with the home, such as water heaters, HVAC, washers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves, and ovens. Inspectors generally only check appliances for basic functionality.

No. Home inspections are optional and not required for a loan. Home appraisals, however, are mandatory. No bank or lender will give you any kind of loan without conducting an appraisal first.

Home inspections usually take about 3-4 hours depending on the size of the home. For larger homes, this process will take longer. With Inside & Out Property Inspectors, it only takes 1-2 hours because we do team inspections on site.

A home inspection report will be sent to you usually within 1-2 days after the inspection. The inspection report summarizes all of the major findings of the home inspection.

No but it’s always a good idea to get a home inspected before your buy it. Even if you feel confident about the condition of the home, a home inspector can find issues that you didn’t notice. This may give you the ability to negotiate a lower price, which is well worth the cost of a home inspection.

No. An appraisal is conducted by the bank and a home inspection is done by a privately contracted home inspector. An appraisal is required to get a loan, an inspection is not.

Yes, you can. However, you do have to pay for the appraisal so it is generally a good idea to have the inspection done first. That way, if you decide not to buy the home after the inspection (due to major issues found or other deal breakers) you won’t have wasted the money on the appraisal to get the loan.
