Home inspections can help you buy or sell your home with confidence. As trained professionals, we have seen it all, and we'll provide invaluable help in turning you into a knowledgeable consumer. 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.
In both 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 us provide you with a professional home inspection. We are 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.
Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, it’s always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses. We can help you answer how serious the problems are and which may need immediate attention and which can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation during the sale of your home.
Condos & Townhouses
All condos and townhouses are treated and inspected in the same manner as house inspections. Not only is the interior of the unit inspected, but all the exterior and common areas are inspected, as well, where readily accessible. The roof, exterior cladding/siding, decks/porches, windows, and garages (where applicable) are also inspected. Many home/building inspection companies do not provide this service.
The only limitations in some buildings would be accessibility to the roof if the building is too tall for standard ladders or the Building Association/complex does not provide roof access. Although these areas are considered common areas and may not affect you directly at this time, assessments can be placed on the homeowners if problems arise.
Most homeowners are told about common expenses (roof replacement) and standard maintenance, but sudden and unexpected dues and assessment may occur when it is discovered that the building’s exterior needs replacement (siding, decks, etc.) without any warning. A complete inspection of the unit and building may reveal future expenses and help with the home buying decision.
