If you’ve decided to purchase a home, you likely already know that a home inspector will check everything out and make sure the structure is in great shape. Getting to know your new home, however, means that you should take the time to ask some important questions to the home inspector.

The best time to ask an inspector any questions is right when the inspection itself is taking place. This means that you will want to be present during the entire process.

Here are three important questions that you should always consider asking a home inspector:

Is This a Huge Deal, or is it a Small Issue?

If your inspector tells you something along the lines of there being a foundation issue with the home or the roof needs to be repaired, you should always remain calm. Ask the inspector if they believe the issue is huge or small. Many homes have similar issues and even though they may sound big, they aren’t necessarily deal breakers.

What Are Some of the Biggest Concerns Regarding the Property?

When the inspection ends, you will receive a summary of what the inspector found. You will also receive a written report later on; however, it’s a good idea to be clear on what they believe the biggest issues with the home are, as well as whether or not they should be investigated further.

How Do I Maintain a HVAC/Boiler/Basement?

Your inspector will always take the time to show you how to properly maintain something like this, meaning you won’t have anything to worry about. However long it takes to explain everything, it will be done.
