Description of Services
Home owners can identify problems in the making and take preventive measures to avoid costly repairs. Sellers can understand conditions the buyer’s inspector may point out and put the property in better selling condition by making repairs.
Buyers Inspection – In new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have a professional home inspection. I am trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention.
Sellers Inspection – When selling your home, it’s prudent to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: I help you answer how serious the problems are, which must be immediately addressed, and which ones can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation.
Phase Construction and New Construction Inspections – With homes being built in as little as six weeks, the quality of construction is often not what it used to be. It is important for “new build” buyers have work inspected at critical phases, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.
Warranty Inspection – Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a “punch list” of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye, so obtaining an inspector’s list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you is helpful. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something more expensive.
