We offer a multitude of services and inspections. Our two most common inspections are Pre-Sale Inspections and Pre-Purchase Inspections.
It is becoming increasingly common for sellers to have a home inspection conducted prior to pricing and listing their home for sale. An inspection can provide a seller with an objective evaluation of their property by a skilled professional.
A Pre-Sale Inspection offers sellers the opportunity to uncover any potential issues or problems with their home. If problems are uncovered, the sellers have the option to perform repairs or not and set the price accordingly. Many home owners choose to make the Pre-Sale Inspection report available to a potential buyer which could help attract buyers.
Pre-Sale inspections are like heading someone off at the pass! Rather than wait for a buyer to uncover a serious issue during their due diligence period, the seller can go into the sale with full disclosure. The seller can list their home fully confident that there will be no surprises if the potential buyer conducts their own inspection! It can help avoid a potential buyer renegotiating their initial offer.
For a buyer, the Pre-Purchase Inspection can be a crucial part of the decision to purchase a home. It allows the buyer to enter into the transaction fully informed of any current or potential issues with the dwelling. It lessens a buyer’s risk when making the decision to purchase the home because it can uncover issues which could affect the purchase price/offer.
Not performing a Pre-Purchase Inspection is akin to entering into a transaction blindfolded! Given the choice, a buyer should have as much information about a dwelling prior to closing the purchase! Whether you are building a home or purchasing an established one, an inspection by one of our inspectors will provide you with peace of mind.
Our inspectors will always perform an objective, thorough evaluation of the dwelling and provide you with an equally thorough and detailed report following the inspection. There will generally be an inspector for the buyer as well as another home inspector for the seller. We will always work within your timeframe or we won’t accept the project.
For a new construction project we can provide inspections throughout the construction of your home including: foundation footing inspections, appropriate waterproofing, framing inspections prior to drywall, inspection of materials, and a final walk-through inspection prior to closing. In some cases, homeowners want a second home inspection just prior to the end of their one year warranty period.
The inspection will help uncover any problems or safety concerns with the dwelling. If a problem is found, the inspector will summarize the issue, detail recommendations for potential solutions. When appropriate, pictures are also provided in the report. Our reports are well written and informative to you as the buyer.
All of our inspections will examine and evaluate the house from top to bottom including all its rooms and living spaces, the envelope of the house, including the framing and structure interior & exterior. All of the home’s systems are examined: electrical and plumbing included. Windows, doors, foundations, attics, crawl spaces, and outdoor hardscape are evaluated including driveways, decks, and garages.
Basically, as professional inspectors, we will conduct the best possible inspection of your dwelling! If something is in good condition, we will tell you. If it’s of concern, we will definitely tell you!
