Buyer’s Home Inspection
It is a visual inspection of the structure and components of a home to find items that are not performing correctly or items that are unsafe. If a problem, or a symptom of a problem, is found I will include a description of the problem in a written report and may recommend further evaluation. Before you close, you need to consider whether or not repairs are needed now and who’s going to pay for them.
Pre-Listing Home Inspections
A Pre-Listing Home Inspection could be the most important thing you do to prepare your home for sale. For what amounts to a small fraction of the cost of selling your home, have the peace of mind that your home is in good condition and maintain your selling price from a better negotiating position. Most buyers are not in the market for a “fixer-upper”, so having your house marketed with everything fixed ahead of time is a very strong selling point and will often successfully set your house apart from others on the market.
Most people who are content to stay in their current house can benefit from a home inspection. I will go through your entire house and let you know the present condition and identify any possible unseen problems. Many of these issues are minor problems that can be caught before they turn into major ones. I will advise you on important maintenance and care items that will help you maintain your home for years to come.
