Purchasing a home can be a huge risk, take the guesswork and stress out of buying a home by consulting one our Experts. Our inspectors are unbiased; highly customer-service oriented, friendly, meticulous, and will take the guesswork out of the home-purchasing process. Our Experts are vastly knowledgeable and can help you with tips on home maintenance, improving safety, potential future costs that may arrive down the line when purchasing the home, and they can even help improve your negotiating power with the seller with their findings.
Expert Home Inspectors will provide you with a complete understanding of the condition of the house and help you in making an informed decision whether to buy or not.
All Expert Home Inspectors will usually cost a few hundred dollars, but it could end up saving you thousands. It is better to be safe than sorry. It is far better to spend a few hundred dollars on the Home Inspection, rather than hoping for the best and ending up with a home you aren’t satisfied with.
Your Expert Home Inspector has years of experience and a wealth of knowledge. Use this resource to its fullest, ask questions. Your Home Inspector will gladly offer tips, maintenance ideas and give advice on repairs.
Pests and rodents such as termites, carpenter ants, and rats can cause terrible damage to a home. The house you are eyeing may look appealing from the street but underneath it all, these unwelcome guests could be doing thousands of dollars worth of damage.
Structural issues can be very expensive to fix, and without the trained eyes of a Home Inspector, it is very easy to overlook the problem that will end up costing you more than you planned. Certain large cracks in the walls, door frames or ceiling, which were quickly explained away by the home seller at the time of mandate signing, might actually turn out to be a serious structural problem, where some handfuls of spackling paste won’t do the trick to make it all go away. A Home Inspection will discover such any potential red flags such as structural issues.
Bypassing a Home Inspection is a financial gamble but it is also a choice that could lead into more serious consequences. A faulty electrical system that is ignored could easily turn into a fire hazard. A leaking faucet could turn into hidden mold, causing health problems. Lead paint is found in some homes built before 1978. If the paint job is in good shape—no flaking or peeling—you’re generally in good shape. But if children nibble the paint job or eat paint chips, the health cost could be high. A Home Inspection can help find out what you’re dealing with.
Expert Home Inspectors will provide you with a full detailed report outlining any issues with the home. With this report, you can negotiate with the seller to either fix any issues or adjust the price accordingly.
Knowing the problems that the house has, before buying, will give you a good idea of any costs you may have to deal with in the future. Our Expert Home Inspectors will be able to diagnose the situation of the individual component or installation, and determine whether maintenance is long overdue, or has been taken care of quite recently.
