Types of Inspections

 

Home Buyers
 
Pre-purchase Inspections:
 
Buying a home is probably the most expensive purchase you will ever make.  This is no time to shop for a cheap inspection.  The cost of a home inspection is very small relative to the home being inspected.  We are determined to perform inspections of the upmost quality, with integrity.  For a buyer, we make sure that they know and understand every fact about the property that they are purchasing. 
 
Anytime that you are purchasing a property, we understand that it is a HUGE investment.  Everyone involved needs to know every aspect of the property.  We take pride in providing this service.  The majority of our business is from client referrals and from real estate agent recommendations.  We work directly for the client.  Our job is to insure that the client understands every item that may be reported.  Our job does not end after the report is completed.  Should you have any questions months down the road, you are encouraged to give us a call and we will do whatever it takes to insure that you are completely comfortable with the property.
 
New Construction Inspections:
 
"What could possibly be wrong, this is a new house."
 
Building a new home is a tremendously complex endeavor and the city/municipal inspector cannot check everything in your home. With current city and municipal budgets under financial stress it is not unusual for the average city Inspector to have a workload of 25-30 inspections in a single day. Even for the best builders, it's nearly impossible to complete the building process without missing something.
 
We are here to assist you in making a confident decision about your property.
 
 
 
Home Sellers & Real Estate Agents
 
Pre-lisitng Inspections:
 
There are many advantages to having your house/listing pre-inspected before it is listed
 
* The seller/agent can choose a certified NACHI inspector to inspect the home properly before the buyer's inspector  arrives.
* The seller/agent can schedule the inspection at the seller's convenience.
* It might alert the seller/agent of any items of immediate personal concern.
* The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.
* The seller can have the inspector correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is generated.
* The report can help the seller/agent realistically price the home if problems exist.
* The report can help the seller/agent substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.
* A pre-lisitng inspection reveals problems ahead of time which:
            * might make the home show better.
            * gives the seller/agent time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors. 
            * permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
            * removes over-inflated buyer procured estimates from the negotiation table.
* The report might alert the seller/agent to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.
* The report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers.
* A pre-listing inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
* The report might relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.
* A pre-listing inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
* The report might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
* The deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's inspection unexpectedly reveals a problem, last minute.
* The report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
 
 
 
Home Owners
 
Warranty Inspections:
 
Don’t let your Builders Warranty expire without having a professional home inspection.
 
Traditionally most builders offer a new construction one-year warranty which covers many aspects of repair and replacement throughout the house. Now more than ever, smart homeowners of new construction properties are taking advantage of having a professional home inspection to assist in discovering unforeseen pitfalls affecting their home.
 
There may be defects that have not revealed themselves – yet.
 
There is no such thing as a perfect house. Beyond your own request for repairs, there are components that should be repaired that can only be discovered by a skilled home inspector (improper wiring, attic framing, furnace & A/C concerns, etc.).
 
"What could possibly be wrong, this is a new house."
 
Building a new home is a tremendously complex endeavor and the city/municipal inspector cannot check everything in your home. With current city and municipal budgets under financial stress it is not unusual for the average city Inspector to have a workload of 25-30 inspections in a single day. Even for the best builders, it's nearly impossible to complete the building process without missing something.
 
Have defects discovered and corrected at the builders expense, rather than at YOUR expense.
 
When you consider the investment you have made in your new home, a professional home inspection is a relatively inexpensive safeguard. We believe your investment in a new construction one-year home warranty inspection will prove to be of significant value. Be a smart homeowner - get the facts and secure the ““peace of mind”” you deserve!
 
 
Maintenance Inspections:
 
Maintenance inspections should be performed every year to assure the integrity of the building / house (your real estate investment) and the health of your family .  Maintenance inspections can, besides pointing out large issues, point out small preventative maintenance issues that can, over time, lead to big problems.  Maintenance inspections can help the home owner protect their investment, family and help save them money from huge repairs.
