Home owners can identify problems in the making and
take preventive measures to avoid costly repairs. Sellers
can understand conditions the buyer's inspector may point
out and put the property in better selling condition by making
Buyers Inspection- In new and older homes, the best
way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and
weaknesses of a property is to have a professional home
inspection. I am trained to identify problem areas both small
and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners
and to identify which require immediate attention.
Sellers Inspection - When selling your home, it's
prudent to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is
power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: I help you answer
how serious the problems are, which must be immediately addressed,
and which ones can wait. The more you know about your home, the
more prepared you will be for negotiation.
Phase Construction and New Construction Inspections -
The quality of construction is often not what it used to be, so
many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during
various stages of the construction process, including slab,
frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive
inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises,
and ensures the quality home that you've dreamed about.
Warranty Inspection - Most builders provide a
one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this
period of time the buyer develops a "punch list" of corrections
for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some
defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye, so obtaining
an inspector's list of items that will most likely be repaired
by your builder at no cost to you is helpful. You will be
reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before
they grew into something more expensive.
