Purchasing a home is perhaps one of the largest investments of a lifetime. To ensure that you know the true quality of the property before you commit to buying it, hire a professional to inspect it. An inspection will bring to light any defects or needed repairs. Having this knowledge will not only inform you of the property’s condition, but may also give you more price negotiating leverage.
Pre-Listing / Seller’s Inspection
Before putting your home on the market, it is also beneficial to hire a professional inspector. Likewise you can find any areas of concern and have them fixed prior to listing, or you can adjust your price based on the findings. Furthermore, if your property has a clean bill of health, you may be able to increase the selling price. Either way, potential buyers will appreciate that you put the work in beforehand.
New Construction Phase Inspections
This ensures that a home is being built properly every step of the way. The homeowner will be made aware of the state of construction of the new home, what has been satisfactorily completed and any issues that have arisen during construction. These issues can be repaired before moving onto the next phase of the building process.
