PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTION

 

A home inspection  is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home  are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. 

Doors  and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected,  air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The home inspector will  test/look at over 400 items during the home inspection. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. 

Upon completion a detailed home inspection report will be e-mailed to you.

NEW CONSTRUCTION

 

New construction home inspections  are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your  final walk through with the Builder's Customer Service Representative or  Superintendent. 

It  is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and  electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on  the Builder's policy. 

The home inspection  should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through  with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute  items have been completed prior to your home inspection.

Upon completion a detailed home inspection report will be e-mailed to you.

INVESTOR PROPERTY INSPECTION

 

Includes Multi-Unit Housing

Investor property home inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. 

Pre-purchase home inspections are  performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate  repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the  property.

Periodic home inspections  for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the  identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant's  departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or  abuse the property during their tenancy. 

Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership

PRE-MARKETING INSPECTION (PRE-LISTING INSPECTION)

 
Listing home inspections (pre-sale home inspections) are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. 
Sales  are sometimes cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional  condition" of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical,  safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge. 
Using our home inspection services prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either  repair or disclose the issue found in the Home Inspection Report.  Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards  completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the  owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the  home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net  sales price for the owner.
