What Is A Home Inspection?
When you decide that it is time to sell your home in Gig Harbor, a home inspection will be necessary before any sale can be made final. A home inspection is a part of the closing process where an inspector is hired to come and perform a visual inspection of the house to ensure that there are no major issues that the new homeowners should know about before the sale is final. A home inspector’s main goal is to identify anything that is unsafe, near the end of service life, damaged, or not functioning properly.
Team Aro is here to help you find a trusted home inspector and make your home selling process easier. After all, you’ve got plenty of other things to worry about! Let Cindy Marchand and Team Aro take care of you.

- Water damage

When Does A Home Inspection Occur?
During a home sale, there are two types of home inspections: a buyer’s inspection and a seller’s inspection. A seller’s inspection occurs before the home is listed. This inspection is designed to alert the seller of any issues that they might need to address before their home can be listed. A buyer’s inspection is an inspection that is scheduled after the buyer has made an offer on the home. A buyer’s inspection is designed to find any issues that might have been missed in the first inspection, and to also get an inside look to see if there are any issues that can be leveraged during negotiation.
What Happens During A Home Inspection?
Typically speaking, home inspections do not take very much time — it really should take just a couple of hours. That said, not everyone can afford to take a few hours off during the workday to let them inspect their home. That’s where Team Aro comes in. Let us help you schedule an inspection for your Gig Harbor home and let the inspector in — allowing you to focus on other aspects of your busy schedule.
During a typical home inspection, the inspector will check out the interior and exterior of your home to try and identify any issues, hazards, or defects on your property. Once the inspection is complete, the inspector will write up a report to alert you of any issues or concerns that they might have.
