Fireplace Inspection

Today I had the opportunity to be at a fireplace inspection for one of our listings and witness first hand what exactly goes on. During the buyer's inspection contingency period, the buyer has the option to opt for various inspections besides just the regular home inspection. Many times the home inspector will recommend a specialist for things such as a fireplace or roof to be inspected further. It turns out this fireplace needs to be replaced and could end up costing $20,000. Now the buyer will have to determine if he is willing to replace the fireplace on top of all of the other costs. It's a good idea to hire additional inspectors to make sure the home you are thinking of buying is not going to fall apart or cost you more in the long run later.
