During a home inspection, two groups should attend —the buyer and the home inspector. It’s best that sellers or agents of the seller not be present during the inspection because it can impede the process. This isn’t to say that sellers intentionally mislead inspectors. In fact, interruptions are usually intended to help the process.
How Long Does A Home Inspection Take?
A typical inspection can take anywhere from 2-4 hours, depending on the size and age of your home. During this time, sellers should allow the trained inspector some privacy while evaluating the home and surrounding property.
