As mentioned above, there is always risk associated with purchasing a home or condo. Having homeowner’s insurance, a home warranty protection plan, or claims by a certain international home inspector organization that they will “buy the house back if their inspector members misses something” will never change that fact. After all the hoopla and wild claims, the fact is that you only get one chance to get your home inspection done. Hiring the cheapest company rarely equals getting the best job. If there’s a serious problem that comes to light after the sale, you don’t get the option of a “do over”.
Hiring a competent real estate home inspector is a critical, and often overlooked step in the home buying process. In our experience, most of the homes for sale have a number of undisclosed material defects. These include life safety, foundation, plumbing, electrical, roofing, moisture intrusion, heating & cooling issues, all sorts of installation errors, just to name a few. Sometimes they are relatively minor and easily fixed, but not always. Sometimes we discover major issues that are expensive to remedy. So don’t be fooled by curb appeal or fancy staging. There is always a chance that hidden defects exist. Luckily, our state of the art real estate home inspection service will uncover many of the defects mentioned. We have been leveling the playing field for our clients for over two decades. All you need to do is call us and we will help you dramatically reduce your risk.
