At least 85% of the residential and recreational properties bought in Muskoka have a home inspection clause as a condition in the Agreement of Purchase and Sale. While a home inspection is not a guarantee that every defect in a home or cottage will be found, there is a compelling argument for having an objective 3rd party look at the property from a technical perspective.
It's important to hire a knowledgeable, independent home inspector for advice on the overall condition of the property. Your Agreement of Purchase and Sale will usually grant a specific time period for each inspection, and it's critical that these time frames be met. Usually the cost for any and all inspections and re-inspections are paid by the Buyer. The typical cost of an inspection will range between $375 - $525 in this area, depending on the size and complexity of the structures being inspected.
There are various types of inspection available:
Many companies specialize in only one area of inspection, and others will group several together and offer a package price. Whichever route you go, assure yourself you're getting the inspections you need.
Here are some of the inspection companies my clients have used in the Bracebridge and Gravenhurst area:
