Have Peace Of Mind

A home inspection will provide the buyer peace of mind and put the buyer’s mind at ease that the home is in good shape. A home inspection is an all-encompassing examination of the condition of a home.   The home inspection process is often but not always performed at the time of the sale of the home. A home is one of the most important purchases one will ever make.  A home inspection is an inexpensive way to discover the universal condition of a home and assist you in knowing the health and safety of the home you are about to purchase.

Our certified home inspectors are professionals who will conduct an inspection of the general condition of the home.  Our home inspectors will cover features of the house such as structure, exterior conditions, roof, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, ventilation, interior and ensure all appliances are in good working condition.

If at all possible, it is recommended you attend your home inspection process.  This is a valuable educational opportunity. Never pass up the chance to see your forthcoming home through the eyes of an expert.   A home inspection will take anywhere from 2-5 hours, depending upon the size and age of the home.  Once the inspection is completed, our inspectors will provide a professional, detailed report and review it with you to ensure you do not have any questions regarding the condition, health and safety of the home.

A radon inspection is also important when purchasing a home.  Radon is a radioactive gaseous element formed by breakdown of radium, that occurs naturally especially in areas over granite, and is considered hazardous to health.  Radon gas from natural sources can accumulate in homes, especially in confined areas such as attics and basements.  Radon levels fluctuate naturally, therefore testing for high levels is important. A radon test consists of using radon detection equipment that would be placed in the lowest habitable floor of the house for 48 hours.  Understanding the home has safe levels or no signs of radon provides additional peace of mind to the prospective buyer.

 

The Bottom Line
A home inspection will cost you a little bit of time and money, but in the long run you’ll be glad you did it. The inspection can reveal problems that you may be able to get the current owners to fix before you move in, saving you time and money. If you are a first-time home buyer, an inspection can give you a crash course in home maintenance and a checklist of items that need attention to make your home as safe and sound as possible. Don’t skip this important step in the home-buying process – it’s worth every penny.
