You have finally found your home! You love many features about it and from the initial walk through the property appears to have had regular maintenance. The next question you now need to answer is if there are any underlying costly issues? This is what a home inspection can help reveal during a professional house inspection. It would be my pleasure to assist you in obtaining objective and important facts about the property. From top to bottom and inside and out, you’ll be supplied with the essential information you need to have any necessary repairs made, to negotiate the price of the home, and to decide whether or not to make the purchase.
With a pre-purchase home inspection you not only learn about the general condition of the home, but you are educated on the specific maintenance concerns that are unique to the home. Where are the water & gas shut offs? Do the HVAC filters need to be changed? Will the gutters need continual cleaning? Do the smoke detectors need to be replaced? Should you budget for large items like roofs, HVAC units, water heaters, or appliances because of their age? I will supply you with this information in the inspection report.
An important part of a buyer's home inspection is to make sure the home is safe. During a thorough home inspection I will be looking at every accessible system and its components for safety concerns which may be due to damage, deterioration, improper installation, or a change in accepted residential construction standards.
With the pre-purchase inspection, you’ll learn the general condition of your potential home’s most important systems, including:
After the inspection and when repairs have been made, I offer a recheck inspection prior to closing. This inspection includes looking at items that were requested to be repaired. The purpose of the recheck is to inform you that repairs have been completed. I highly recommend having a recheck after repairs have been made.
