If you're selling a home, getting a home inspection means you know you're complying with full disclosure laws, and means you can consider selecting contractors rather than waiting for the buyer to do so. If you've just done extensive remodeling, a home inspection can help you make certain the contractors did the job correctly.
New Home Inspection
Because the quality of new construction quality is often not what it used to be some years ago, many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.
Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, it’s always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: I will help you answer how serious the problems are and which must be immediately addressed and which can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation.
1-Year Warranty Inspection
Most builders provide a one year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a "punch list" of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain a home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road.
The best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have a professional home inspection. Home inspectors are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention. Let your inspector spot the problems (new and old), before you commit to a major investment and decision. A trained professional has seen it all and will provide invaluable help in turning you into a knowledgeable consumer. Home owners can identify problems in the making and take preventive measures to avoid costly repairs. Sellers can understand conditions the buyer’s inspector may point out and put the property in better selling condition by making repairs.
My job as your professional home inspector is to alert you to the possibility of unknown problems and potential environmental hazards in your current or potential house. Just because some of these hazards are invisible doesn’t mean they call for less vigilance on your part. Mine is a non-invasive visual inspection of your property. While I may be able to alert you to possible problems, my basic inspections are no substitutes for specialized contaminant testing.
