Home Buyers Inspection (Pre-Purchase Inspection)

A home inspection is a visual non-invasive examination process . Most of the components typically used within a home are operated with standard controls to determine their condition. Upon completion a comprehensive report is issued.

Seller Certified Inspection

Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are canceled due to the buyer’s shock at the "functional condition" of the home. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. Usually, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can’t make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.

Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections

Warranty inspections can be performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builders Warranty.  The inspection will confirm the proper installation of components. Upon completion a comprehensive report is issues.

Investor Property Inspections (Includes Multi-Unit Housing)

Investor property inspections can be performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant’s departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership. 

New Construction Inspections

New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder’s Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder’s policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before you final walk through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to you.
