Future Land Home Services Frequently Asked Questions
- WHAT IS A HOME INSPECTION?
A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation. Having a home inspected is like giving it a physical check-up. If problems or symptoms are found, the inspector may recommend further evaluation.
- WHAT DOES A HOME INSPECTION INCLUDE?
The standard home inspector's report will review the condition of: the heating system, the electrical
system, the cooling system, the interior plumbing, the roof surface, attic, insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, appliances, foundation, basement, exterior, drainage and structure.
- WHY SHOULD I HAVE A HOME INSPECTION?
The purchase of a home is probably the largest single investment you will ever make. You should learn as much as you can about the condition of the property and the need for any major repairs before you buy, so that you can minimize unpleasant surprises and difficulties afterwards. Of course, a home inspection also points out the positive aspects of a home, as well as the maintenance that will be necessary to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will have a much clearer understanding of the property you are about to purchase.
If you are already a home owner, a home inspection may be used to identify problems in the making and to learn preventive measures which might avoid costly future repairs. If you are planning to sell your home, you may wish to have an inspection prior to placing your home on the market. This will give you a better understanding of conditions which may be discovered by the buyer's inspector, and an opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.
- HOW LONG DOES AN INSPECTION TAKE?
Home inspections take between two and three hours for the standard size home. However, for homes above 5,000 square feet, older homes or homes with additions, the inspection may take longer.
- SHOULD I BE PRESENT FOR THE INSPECTION?
It is not necessary for you to be present for the inspection, but it is recommended. You will be able to observe the property with the inspector and ask questions directly, as you learn about the condition of the home, how its systems work, and how to maintain it. You will also find the written report easier to understand if you've seen the property first-hand through the inspector's eyes.

- WHAT'S THE PURPOSE OF A HOME INSPECTION?
For the Buyers: The main purpose of a home inspection is to give you the information needed to make an informed decision on the purchase. Most home inspectors focus on the major defects that will cost the buyer a lot of money above the purchase price to repair. Cosmetic items are rarely reported.
For the sellers: Our home inspection gives you a powerful marketing tool to set your home apart. we point out repairs that you may wish to make before you put your home up for sale. A pre-sale home inspection can be your competitive edge when it comes to offering the buyer greater peace of mind.
- IS IT OKAY TO PERFORM THE INSPECTION MYSELF?
Inspecting your own potential house is not recommended. Home inspectors are specially trained to look for things you may miss. Unless you are a home inspector yourself, seek out a professional. Some states or financial lenders require a licensed inspector to complete the inspection.
