SELLERS PRE-SALE INSPECTION

Having your home inspected before you place it on the market will benefit you greatly because:

 

It helps you to price your home realistically.

It permits you to make home repairs before they become stumbling blocks at the negotiating table.

It gives you time to check out reasonably priced contractors to make the repairs.

It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.

PRE-WARRANTY EXPIRATION INSPECTION

Home owners who receive a builder's 12-month home warranty should contact me to inspect or re-inspect your home 1 or 2 months before your warranty expires. In most cases I can point out concerns that may be covered under the original builders warranty. These concerns may be repaired for you at little or no cost.

For a complete list of what is inspected, please read Buyer's Inspection.

For a smaller fee, I will return to the home to verify that all requested repairs have been performed correctly

INDOOR AIR QUALITY INSPECTION

Most of us spend much of our time indoors. Four basic factors that influence Indoor Air Quality: 1. The occupants. 2. The HVAC system. 3. Possible pollutant pathways. 4. Possible contaminant sources. The air that we breathe in our homes can put us at risk for health problems. Some pollutants can be chemicals, gases, living organisms like molds and pests, home furnishings, cooking, heating, water vapor and tobacco smoke. Studies have shown that indoor air can be as much as 100 times more polluted than outside air. People with chronic respiratory and immune system ailments are more susceptible to these pollutants. The majority of ailments diagnosed by physicians are related to bad indoor air.

SLAB ELEVATION MEASUREMENTS INSPECTION

A standard home inspection is a visual one. But when it comes to possible foundation issues, a visual inspection sometimes is not enough. That is when a professional grade foundation level can come in handy. A ZipLevel measures a homes foundation elevations with a high degree of accuracy. It measures how much different sections of a foundation have either settled or heaved. This additional inspection can be performed at the time of the standard home inspection. You will not have to wait the 2-3 days extra that foundation contractors or structural engineers will take to arrive. This is also a great tool to help determine if the seller will have to address a foundation issue. There is an extra chare of $125 for this additional service.
