A buyers inspection is designed to provide the buyer with a thorough evaluation of the home and property during the inspection contingency time period. A written report is provided in a timely manner to both the buyer and the buyers agent (if applicable). The report details any defects or repairs that may be needed. Buyers typically have a 5 – 10 day inspection contingency written into the contract which should only be lifted once any defects or repairs have been corrected by the seller in a manner that satisfies the buyer. In some cases, repairs needed are assigned a monetary value and may be negotiated off the final purchase price.
This service is designed to inform a seller what a buyers inspector is likely to uncover prior to putting their home up for sale. This service is an invaluable tool to assist you in making the repairs buyers are likely to request and to get the highest price your property. A sellers inspection helps you avoid issues that other inspectors may uncover. Information is key to having a quick sale. Homes with preinspections sell quicker with fewer seller concessions than those without.
We inspectors love to solve mysteries. Forensic inspections are conducted in situations where a specific condition is present in the home where the cause is not known. Maybe other tradespeople have been unable to provide answers. Homework’s will conduct an independent inspection based on the conditions you describe as problematic and find the underlying cause. If necessary we have resources such as the national network of veteran ASHI certified inspector website dedicated to members to share among peers to help solve uncommon problems.
If requested we can perform an inspection of just one area such as the crawlspace to ensure dry conditions, attic to check for leaks and insulation adequacy, etc. Whatever the area of concern or just for peace of mind. See contact page to call or to request a quote.
