Looking for a place to soothe your soul? Look no further. From dawn to sundown, this Pacific Northwest-inspired contemporary offers magnificent views of tranquil Snow Pond, a quiet, private waterway shared only by neighbors and the great blue herons and aquatic birds who make this lovely spot their home. With its own cove, dock, and canoe ramp, the property offers direct pond access for canoeing and kayaking. An 1100-sq. ft. deck and separate princess balcony off the master suite offer panoramic views of this waterfront paradise and its beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens. The dramatic interior has features you won't find elsewhere, including an impeccably finished walkout lower level office with 10' ceilings, granite kitchen, gas fireplace, built-in speakers, and full bath. You'll love having breakfast at the picture window overlooking the pond while the morning sun sparkles into the east-facing kitchen. The exterior was stained and the driveway resealed in 2018. It's a gem.

A home inspection is a vital part of every real estate transaction. Its importance is usually solidified in a purchase contract in the form of a contingency clause.

Whenever you buy or sell a home, the transaction is typically contingent upon a few things being fulfilled. Inspections help protect the buyer from purchasing a home that they believed didnít have any major issues.

For buyers, an inspection can save you thousands in the long run. For sellers, getting a preemptive inspection done (on your own dime) can be useful since it will help you avoid any surprises that could arise when a potential buyer has your home inspected.

Hiring a home inspector

Regardless of whether youíre the buyer or the seller in this instance, hiring a home inspector isnít something you should take lightly. Youíll want to confer with your agent before you pick an inspector.

Itís also a good idea to check out some online reviews and visit the inspectorís website for pricing. Typically, inspectors charge between $200 and $400 for an inspection, so feel free to shop around.

Inspectors are certified, so make sure whoever you choose has the proper licensure. You can search for inspectors in your area with this search function.

Ultimately, youíll want to choose an inspector that can give you the most unbiased assessment of the home, so that you can be assured that you know what youíre getting into when you buy or sell a home.

Preparing for an inspection

Many buyers arenít sure what to expect on inspection day. However, the process is relatively simple.

Youíll want to make sure the inspector can easily access workspaces (like around the furnace, circuit breakers, etc.). This will make the inspectorís job easier and allow them to focus on the service theyíre providing you.

If possible, itís also a good idea to provide them with records of important home maintenance and repairs. Inspectors know what red flags to look for with the home, both physically and on paper.

Finally, make sure pets, kids, and any other distractions are away from home or with someone who can attend to them.

Post inspection

After the inspection is complete, the inspector will hand you a report and be able to answer any questions you have about their findings. They will give recommendations about the timeline for repairs that need to be made soon or even years into the future.

With this report in hand, you can determine if there are repairs you want to negotiate with the seller if youíre buying a home. As a seller, this report will tip you off to issues that potential buyers will likely have and give you a chance to address them in advance.
