Pre-purchase inspections include a thorough visual examination of all the
major home systems. Any immediate, major concerns are identified along with general maintenance items and tips. Client attendance during the entire inspection is strongly encouraged, but not compulsory. The inspection is quickly followed with a detailed, 400+ point combination checklist and narrative, computer generated report with diagrams and explanations of issues related to the house systems. The full Pre-purchase inspection process will greatly aid clients in making as informed a decision as possible about the home purchase. Please allow approximately 2.5 – 3 hours for the inspection and 1 hour for the report preparation & delivery.
Pre-Offer inspections are identical to Pre-purchase inspections but are completed before an accepted offer to purchase is received by the client. The benefits of this method is to allow the client to know the condition of the home prior to making an offer to purchase. This can be helpful in a “hot” market when competition for homes is very high.
Pre-sale inspections can help sellers identify issues that need repairs prior to the listing of the home for sale. Benefit of a Pre-sale inspection is to help facilitate a smooth and quick sale.
No, these inspections are not carried out by the CSI’s seen on television, but are quite important in identifying causes of problems for current homeowners. Most problems and issues experienced by homeowners have reasonable and identifiable explanations. These items will be identified and the inspector’s recommendations for proper remedial action are included with the report.
Specialists for laboratory analysis and indoor air quality evaluations can be provided at additional cost.
