- Buyer's Home Inspections
In both new and
older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about
the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to get 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. This is the most
common inspection performed typically for the real estate
- Seller's Home Inspections
Seller Inspections (or Pre-Listing
Inspections) are normally performed by the Seller prior to listing
the home on the real estate market, but it can also be performed
while the home is actually listed. The earlier the Seller has this
inspection performed, the more time they will have to make needed or
wanted repairs. This will reduce the likelihood of a long list of
repairs from the Buyer, which in turn will speed up the sale and
closing process. All Pre-Listing inspection reports are completed
the same day as the inspection and e-mailed or faxed to the client.
- New Construction (Phase) Inspections
In a new home, many
things can go wrong during construction and get overlooked.
Therefore many buyers have independent reviews of their properties
during various stages of the construction process. There are 3 very
important phases of home construction that need to be thoroughly
inspected. The first phase is the foundation inspection. This is the
very base that your house is built on. If there are issues relating
to your foundation, your home's structural integrity will be
compromised and will cost thousands of dollars if you find defects
at a later date. The second phase is the pre-drywall inspection.
This allows the inspection of everything that will soon be hidden by
the walls and ceiling finishes. You want this inspected now, because
any issues in these walls that is discovered later, will require the
walls to be removed. The third and final inspection is performed
when the home is complete.
This relatively inexpensive phased
inspection protects your purchase, ensures current codes are being
met, and guarantees the quality home that you've dreamed about by
inspecting the structure before the walls are covered. My complete
and detailed new construction inspection will provide an unbiased
professional opinion of defects that should be corrected by the
builder. Costs for these particular inspections will vary according
to the number of visits, so please call for pricing. All reports are
completed after each phase and will be completed the same day as the
- New Home Warranty Inspections
provide a one-year warranty for new home construction.
A warranty inspection is performed prior
to the expiration of your newly built home warranty. It is used to
take advantage of the features and benefits of your home warranty to
assure that necessary repairs guaranteed under your builder's
warranty are executed, should I discover any issues or problems.
Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. You will be reassured
knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into
something that could cost you out-of-pocket later.
- Commercial Inspections (under 6,000 sf)
A Commercial inspection is a detailed
visual inspection of the building's structure and mechanical
systems. I will be performing an objective examination of your
prospective building and property to assure you that its existing
condition meets your approval. Knowing the condition of a commercial
building will allow you to budget more accurately and provide for
expenditures down the road -- whether it's a new roof, HVAC or
simply maintenance or safety-related items.
Chances are you've either already
made a large investment or you're about to and if you didn't have
the building inspected before you finalize your closing, you may
have to dig further into your pocket later in order to bring the
building back up to today's standards. I fully understand that you
have a business to run. The last thing you need (as a Buyer or
property manager) is surprises. Whether you own, are about to lease,
or are purchasing a commercial building, don't wait until you move
in to find out what condition the building's systems and components
are really in.
I will slowly walk you through any
commercial property and show you what you are actually getting into
and what might be required to bring your property into current code
- Bank Loan (Draw)
Bank Loan Inspections are required by
most all Lending Institutions to determine the amount of work that
has been completed at a construction site so that the Borrower (a
Construction Company or Home Builder) can draw on their loan. I
provide this inspection service to construction lenders. I act as
the eyes and ears for Lending institutions that are prepared to
commence on a partial payment of a construction loan for residential
and commercial buildings. I basically report on the current
condition of a construction site by providing Lenders with an
accurate snapshot of each building that is under construction or
ready for renovation.
