8 Problems That a Typical Home Inspection Could Miss

Roof Woes

If you read your home inspection report carefully, you might spot a disclaimer about the status of the roof and a recommendation for an additional inspection (which should be completed by a certified roof inspector). Inspectors who are licensed with the NRCIA may also issue a roof certification guaranteeing the life and quality of the roof. While this service may cost a few hundred dollars, requesting that the seller address any issues with the roof before closing could make it well worth the cost.

HVAC Problems

While an inspector should confirm the unit is functional at the time of inspection, they will make no guarantee that it will keep working once you purchase the home. An HVAC specialist, however, will not only give a status of the unit but also will certify the findings of their inspection. If the HVAC unit of the home you're considering is old or the sellers can't tell you when it was last serviced, an inspection or presale tuneup could pay off (and give you peace of mind).

Water damage

External water damage is pretty easy to spot with a visual inspection; it's the damage hidden within a home's walls that can be difficult to detect. Unless your inspector is using an infrared (IR) camera to locate and document any moisture intrusion, you may not know your dream home is waterlogged. For a more thorough inspection, seek out a home inspector who knows how to wield an Infrared (IR) camera. If they spot hidden problems, they can potentially save you thousands.

Flooring Trouble

Inspectors check for obvious signs of wear and tear and any potential issues in plain sight.But what about flooring problems that are covered up with carpet, tile, or laminate? If floors and subfloors are warped or spongy, the home may have a moisture problem and a costly one at that.Use your feet to detect an issue; soft spots where the wood is weak will give way as you walk across the floor. But you can also use your sense of smell: A weak subfloor will have a moldy, musty smell a clear indication of wood rot. If you spot the signs of a potential problem or just want to be sure you can find local experts through the National Institute of Certified Floor covering Inspectors.

Appliance performance

While a home inspector can verify that appliances are in good working order, they won't be able to guarantee how long they will last. Understand the health of your big-ticket appliances by asking the owner for warranty manuals, original purchase receipts, and maintenance records.

Disturbed Asbestos

Sellers are required to disclose any known presence of asbestos. However, the presence of asbestos-based building materials in a home isn't necessarily a reason to call off your purchase: Asbestos is not dangerous unless the material is damaged and fibers are released and inhaled.

Spring 2018 Homebuyer Tips

Arrange your financing.

If you wait until after you've found a home to start the mortgage pre-approval process, you might lose the home in this market to someone who already has their financing ducks in a row.

Act fast.

To be successful and not make a rash decision, be as prepared as possible before you start looking by knowing the type of home and neighborhood you desire.

Put down a decent amount of earnest money.

The more earnest money you contribute, the more serious you look to the seller.

Be prepared for bidding wars.

In hot markets, buyers should be prepared for bidding wars. Fortunately, bidding wars aren't always just about money. A shorter closing, willingness to rent the house back to the seller, a super-quick inspection period, and offer letters can help make a lower offer the best offer.
