Before You Buy Inspect

If you are looking to purchase a home in the Henderson or Las Vegas area, there are a number of things that will need to be addressed prior to closing. One of the most important aspects of the home buying process, and one that should not be overlooked is the home inspection. 

Since buying a home is probably one of the most expensive purchases you will ever make, you want to protect this asset and ensure that you are completely aware of all the potential issues you might face once you take ownership of the home.  

As a buyer, it is your responsibility to order a home inspection shortly after your offer has been accepted by a seller. Your realtor can often recommend a good inspector that they’ve worked with in the past. 

You can also conduct your own search for Henderson home inspectors through sites like and to get a recommendation. You want to make sure you find a certified home inspector that has worked in and is familiar with the Las Vegas area.  

During the inspection the inspector will go over the entire structure including the roof, attic, electrical, plumbing, interior, exterior, and HVAC. The process usually takes a couple of hours and it’s a good idea that as the buyer, you are on-site so the inspector can point out any items of note or concern. 

Once the inspection is complete, the inspector will provide a detailed report of his or her findings which will include photos and notes on areas of concern. Your realtor can go over the report with you and answer any questions you may have. The report and its findings can be a valuable tool in negotiating with the seller if anything comes up that needs to be addressed.

Some other inspections that might be necessary to have prior to proceeding with the purchase of a home include a termite inspection, a radon inspection, as well as well water testing and septic tank testing. Your realtor can advise you on what is appropriate based on the home or dwelling you are planning to purchase.
