A thorough inspection by a professional that evaluates the structural, mechanical and overall condition of a property. A satisfactory home inspection is often included as a contingency (or "condition") by the purchaser.
It is strongly recommended that buyers have a home inspection on any property they intend to buy. Often, it makes sense to hire multiple inspectors to inspect different "systems" on the property such as HVAC, roof, pool, well, septic, etc.
Buyers looking to buy in the Sacramento area (or any area) should consult with their Realtor to help determine the most appropriate inspections to have completed. Most inspections are done at the buyer's expense, however, sometimes the cost of inspections are negotiable between buyers and sellers. Again, the buyer's Realtor can provide guidance in this area.
