A buyer’s Inspection is the most common type of home inspection and is highly recommended if not required most times. By having a professional home inspector that works directly for you, your home can be properly inspected and you will receive a final report you can trust. This professional inspection will examine all of your potential homes, visible structure, appliance, components, and major systems in order to uncover any damage, needed renovation, hazards, or potential issues. The inspector will provide you with a comprehensive report within 24 hours of the inspection detailing his finding. By collecting all the knowledge you can from a professional you give yourself a huge leg up when protecting your potential home investment.
Pre-listing / Sellers Inspection
Sellers can often overlook how important it is to be aware of the home or property’s current condition before placing it on the market. By having a licensed home inspector perform a thorough examination you can recognize and address any issues before they are uncovered by potential buyers. This reporting allows you as a seller to fix any issues or disclose any problems to the buyers before entering any negotiation helping you to close quickly.
Just because something is newly constructed does not mean it’s perfect! Contractors can often rush construction or use subpar material along with many shortcuts and corner cutting. It is just as important to have a new construction home inspected as it is an older home. Make sure that you don’t pay out of pocket for the contractor’s mistakes and make sure the builder is liable for any needed changes to the home’s new construction.
Home Maintenance Inspection
By having a licensed inspector perform semi-regular home inspections you can stay ahead of any potential disasters that could end up costing big. These routine inspections will help make you aware of any raising issues or renovation so your home stays in great condition and your investment can grow!
After performing the initial inspection and adding all the requests to your repair addendum, the original inspector will return to check over any repairs or renovations that were implemented. This helps to guarantee that all the repairs have been done properly and to a level, you can be satisfied with.
Before moving into a property it’s hugely important that you have a licensed professional test for radon. Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can be found throughout your potential home. Radon can be very dangerous and potentially very harmful to you and your family’s health. By having this test performed you can ensure that your home is a safe and secure living space.
A water test will allow you to rest easy knowing your drinking water is safe and potable. After having the sample tested in a lab, the inspector can provide you with a report listing the complete makeup of your drinking supply and make you aware of anything potentially harmful or damaging to your home or your family.
Wood Destroying Insects
The wood components of a house can be slowly and covertly destroyed by termites, carpenter ants, and other wood-eating insects. Termites are hard to find until the infestation is well established because they consume wood from the inside out. Most of the time, an infestation doesn’t become apparent to homeowners until it reaches this level. Termites are frequent intruders in New York. To be sure your potential home isn’t affected by termite damage, schedule our inspection service before making an investment.
