A licensed inspector, termite inspector and an OpenReal team member will work together to complete the inspection. We may also send specialists to examine your HVAC system, roof, or foundation. Inspections typically take around 2 hours, depending on the size of your house. The inspector will require access to all rooms in your home, including garage, attic and basement, as well as outdoor areas such as the yard and roof.
Why do we do inspections?
We provide a free inspection to verify the condition of your home before closing. We’ll check for items that need repair or replacement or aren't up to code. Additionally, we’ll make sure that what we see in person matches the information you provided us and that we didn't miss anything.
What if repairs are needed?
If we find that the house is not as we expected it to be, we may ask for a credit for the difference. If repairs are needed, we will provide an estimate of the costs required to make these fixes. We’ll ask that you sign an addendum to the contract that will cover any credits we ask for. If you aren’t willing to cover these credits, you are free to cancel the contract and walk away with no costs or obligation.
