Buying a home in beautiful San Diego is a potentially rewarding opportunity. For most people it’s a big stepping stone towards fulfilling the American dream. However, home buying is a large financial investment and brings with it a certain degree of risk. Finding the right property in such a competitive market is difficult and buyers are often faced with making a quick decision to purchase or risk losing out on their dream home. On top of that, many sellers demand a fast closing, less than the traditional 17 day contingency period. In many cases the buyers have only seen the property once or twice. They may have a general feeling about the property condition, but in many cases have no idea what’s “under the hood”. In an environment like this it’s imperative to have a top notch home inspection report completed.
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 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 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.
COVID-19 UPDATE: As real estate sales have been designated as “essential services” by government agencies, we are cautiously continuing with our operations. However, we are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and encouraging clients NOT to attend the inspection. We promise every client a remote consultation after the report is delivered, we can even include the real state professional on a 3 way call. Our amazing inspection reports are packed full of details and photographs, it’s almost like being there in person!
