SELLERS INSPECTION: (Pre-Inspection)
Don't wait for last-minute serious issues to come up during the due diligence
process. Let us do a pre-inspection, so you can be prepared.
Pre-Listing Inspection (Seller)
Eventually, your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:
It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party.
It helps you to price your home realistically.
It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that ...
Defects won't become negotiating stumbling blocks later.
There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy permit.
You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself if qualified.
It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
It may alert you of items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
It may relieve prospect's concerns and suspicions.
It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
Alerting you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.
Pre-Purchase Home Inspection(Buyer)
Our pre-purchase home inspection is a general "top-to-bottom" evaluation of the house structure and the major systems and components, such as the roof, electrical system, plumbing system, and air conditioning system.
On the surface, a home may appear to be in good shape, but our experience from inspecting both new and older homes tells us that structural issues, electrical defects, and other significant problems are prevalent and that minor deficiencies generally affect all properties. Also, major maintenance and repair costs -- such as the need for replacement of the roof or air conditioning system -- may be a near term or immediate concern.
Our intent is to provide you with the facts concerning the real condition of the home so that you may proceed with knowledge and confidence. With this information, you can go about getting any deficiencies taken care of on your own, determine whether proceeding with the purchase of the home is prudent, or perhaps use this knowledge to negotiate the terms of your home purchase.
11-month warranty inspection
Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. This is your opportunity to have a professional make your punch list. Some serious defects are not easily visible and can be very costly.
Our job as your professional home inspector is to alert you to unknown problems and potential environmental hazards in your current or potential house.
POOL & SPA INSPECTION
Selling or buying a home with a pool or spa can be a costly feature.
Asbestos material that crumbles easily if sawed, scraped, or sanded into a powder is more likely to create a health hazard because it can be inhaled into the lungs, increasing the risk of disease. See Asbestos FAQ.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found in soils, rock, and water throughout the U.S. Radon is a threat to health because it tends to collect in homes, sometimes to very high concentrations.
There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture. Molds can produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances.
Lead is a highly toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes. In general, the older a home, the more likely it has lead-based paint.
