From your friends at Acadiana Home Inspections!
Don’t tell us you’re busy and you do not have time for home inspection. If you are buying a new home, you should know how vital to us for your soon-to-be property to go through a thorough checking. Since you have a tight schedule, we cannot blame you if you ask, ‘how long does a home inspection take?’ Unfortunately, though, we at Acadiana Home Inspectors, cannot give you an exact and fixed answer as home inspections usually take around two to four hours but it depends on the size and condition of the property you are buying.
The time frame depends on certain conditions
Don’t be so happy if, when you ask, ‘how long do home inspections take,’ and the home inspector you’re talking to tells you, “it won’t take long.” Remember, you are about to make a significant decision of purchasing a property, and this needs time and thorough checking before closing the deal. At Acadiana Home Inspectors, we do not include in the time allotted for a home inspection, the preparation of the report. More so, the time can vary according to the condition and size of the new home.
There is no exact answer as to how long does a home inspection take. As we said, we can only tell how long are home inspections, if we’ve already seen the property’s size and condition. There is one specific thing though that we can guarantee our customers—home inspection is worthy of your time. Nothing else can be more critical when making a home purchase than ensuring the excellent condition of the property you’re buying.
Other than the money you need to spend the time frame the required time to spend for inspection is another primary concern a home buyer like you, has. Therefore, it is understandable if you wonder how long should home inspection take. The same question is the reason why you need to have a checklist. With a list of items to check or inspect, the task becomes uninterrupted and more accessible to accomplish. And, for some abnormalities which our skilled inspectors discover, expect to spend more time there for them to recommend the next step to take.
Indeed, this we do not give any promise we cannot fulfill. That is why, repeatedly, we keep on saying we cannot tell you the exact timeframe for our home inspection services. One thing is sure. With a complete list of items for inspection, not a single minute becomes useless and a waste.
