Types of Properties Inspected
Homebuyers are on the verge of making one of the largest and most important investments of their life. Don’t make the mistake of jumping in head first, always have a Certified Home Inspector perform an exhaustive inspection before making any final decisions. A Certified Home Inspector executes an in-person walkthrough and inspection of all of the property’s structures, components, and appliances. The Inspector will provide a full report listing any faults, needed repairs, or potential risks, making sure you have all the information you need before you purchase the property.
Pre-listing / Seller's Inspection
The true value of your current property is important information to have in the world of real estate. Homeowners and real estate agents alike need to know the condition of their property before attempting to sell it. With a Home Inspectors thorough report the seller is able to make all the needed repairs and be informed of any major issues. Having a Certified Home Inspector provide an unbiased report shows potential buyers that the seller has taken the necessary steps to assess the true value of their property. Buyers will feel much more at ease knowing the property is safe and the price is an honest one.
Many Homebuyers neglect to hire a Home Inspector for new construction. Sadly, many builders will rush construction by cutting corners to save time and money. It is not uncommon for incorrect or sub-par material to be used during construction. Having an Inspector evaluate the new construction will ensure that it is up to code with all structures, components, and built-in appliances. New Construction also allows the Inspector to have much better access to many of the home’s appliances and structures, allowing for a more thorough inspection.
Home Maintenance Inspection
Most homeowners wish to maintain, if not grow, the value of their current home. With an Inspector’s detailed report you can properly address any of the problems uncovered during the inspection. Carrying out repairs and being made aware of any potential issues will help keep your home’s value and prevent you from paying much higher costs at a later date.
Radon is a harmful gas that can be present anywhere. Radon is both invisible and odorless. It is important for your safety to have a professional inspector perform a radon test and alert you if there are any harmful gases present at the time of inspection.
11 Month / Builder Warranty
When Construction is complete many contractors will provide a 12-month warranty. Having a Certified Home Inspector perform an inspection before the warrant expires helps you avoid paying for anything that has not been property constructed or installed. Don’t pay out of pocket for these costly repairs and make certain that the builder is financially responsible for any of these issues.
The knowledge of the harmful hazards of mold has been steadily increasing. Don’t put your safety in jeopardy and have a well-trained professional carry out a comprehensive inspection for the presence of mold in your home. Mold testing will alert you to current existing mold in your home and areas that could be a problem spot in the future.
