Does a home “pass” or “fail” a home inspection?

A home inspection is not like a pop quiz as in there’s no pass or fail. In fact, a home inspection doesn’t give a score to a home at all. Instead, a home inspection is an examination of the property and its condition. It will give you a report on all of the systems and components of the home and note anything that needs repair.

No pass or fail here!

That being said, sometimes an inspector will find problems with the property that need to be fixed before a lender will fund the mortgage.

If the repairs don’t get fixed, the deal could fall through because the buyer would be unable to pay for the home. That’s why home inspection contingencies are so common!
