HOME & PROPERTY INSPECTION

A home inspection is a comprehensive visual examination of the home’s overall structure, major systems and components. A home is the largest purchase most people will ever make. It only makes sense to find out as much as you can about the house you are interested in before you buy, to avoid surprises resulting in costly repairs and problems with your new home.

A trained and qualified home inspector will review your house as a system, looking at how one component of the house might affect the operability or lifespan of another. Components that are not performing properly should be identified, as well as items that are beyond their useful lifespan or are unsafe. The purpose of the home inspection is to provide our clients with a better understanding of the property conditions, as observed at the time of the inspection.

 

SELLER’S HOME INSPECTION

It is generally estimated that 40 – 50% of all homes in the resale market have at least one significant defect, and almost all homes need some maintenance and repair work. A pre-sale inspection can alert you to problems that could make a potential sale difficult. Fixing the problems in a home before listing not only makes the property more attractive and desirable, it also simplifies the negotiation process when the time comes for the buyer’s pre-purchase home inspection. In many cases, the buyer will waive inspection condition due to the fact that pre sale inspection was carried out.

 

Common areas with potential issues are:

·Improper lot grading and resultant basement water penetration

·Roofing issues

·Windows and doors that need new caulking and weather-stripping.

·Furnace/Water heater issues

·Bathroom caulk or grout that is crumbling and needs replacement to prevent seepage and improve appearance.

·Looking after even minor problems can improve a prospective buyer’s impression of the home.

·Safety improvements (Smoke and CO detectors, GFI, railing, ARC)

·Buyer’s home inspection

·You went through many houses for sale and came across the one – your dream home ! This is probably be the single largest investment that you will make in your life. Now next step is to find what condition it is in.???
