List your house with confidence and reduce the time your house is on the market. A pre-listing home inspection will address your house's deficiencies and help you fully understand its current condition.
Homes with a pre-listing inspection often sell more quickly than those without one. A credible pre-listing home inspection report brings more buyers to the table, creates a better negotiating environment, and reduces the amount of time your house is on the market.
Feel confident and informed before venturing in to one of your largest financial commitments. A pre-listing home inspection will help reduce the risk of unexpected and costly surprises, and help you feel completely comfortable with your home purchase decision.
The information obtained in a pre-purchase home inspection report can also provide valuable information for you to use during price negotiations. The home inspector will make you aware of any deficiencies or safety issues of your future home and will provide you with tips and recommendations for correcting deficiencies.
Maintenance home inspections are often overlooked but should be done every 3-5 years to give you a comprehensive understanding of your home's performance and upcoming service needs. This will allow you to rank and prioritize any deficiencies or maintenance needs, allowing you time to receive multiple quotes and adequately plan for financial expenses.
Just like a house, a townhome or condo is an expensive purchase; therefore, you need a professional home inspector to do an evaluation of its condition before you buy it. The inspector will use a rigorous home inspection protocol to identify and evaluate the specific issues that your unit might have. Depending on the access given by the building manager, this may include areas such as: the roof, boiler room, parking garage, and more.
Decks and roofs are two very important, structural components of any home - both of which require on-going inspection and maintenance. Decks and roofs should be inspected, at minimum, every 3-5 years. These inspections will help you understand deficiencies and adequately plan for maintenance or replacement costs.
