Have a Question?
We’ll Give You An Answer
The residential home inspection is a snap shot of the condition of the home and its systems. The inspection is designed to look at the home from a functional point of view. We inspect the property from roof to foundation. Our reports explain the condition of the home, the defects noted and warn you of future maintenance responsibilities.
The residential pre-inspection is a useful tool for both the agent and the seller. A pre-inspection points out what repairs may be requested during the buyer’s inspection and allows the seller to make some repairs before the home goes to market. This can take the pain and stress out of arranging for repairs when the seller is trying to prepare their move out of the home. A pre-emptive repair can also make the difference in costs between a homeowner or handyman repair compared to a licensed contractor. Finally, the report is an unbiased opinion of the condition of the home which can be used as a tool to assist the agent and seller when pricing the home. .
There are two types of new home inspections. The first inspection is a typical residential home inspection that have some limitations due to the builder’s rules. The second type home inspection is gear toward inspecting the home at various stages of construction to ensure that it is being built using the latest construction standards and that defects or poor building practices are not getting hidden within the walls. This home inspection needs to be considered at the bargaining table when you are making your offer since some builders are reluctant to have a trained eye looking over their shoulder.
Final Walk-thru Inspection
A final walk-thru inspection is an inspection to confirm that requested repairs made to the property have been completed in a workman-like-manner. This inspection is conducted three days before the close of escrow and is charged at a reduced rate.
