Buyers should always perform a pre-purchase inspection of their future home. A home is probably the largest purchase that you will ever make, so it is vitally important to understand the condition of your investment. The purpose of this inspection is to provide the buyer with useful information regarding the condition of the residence, and to identify any deficiencies in the home's structure, systems or components.
My standard home inspection is an evaluation of the visible and accessible interior and exterior structure, systems, and components. Your written report will include my findings of any material defects I discover in an easy-to-read format (see a sample report here). I will also provide recommendations for monitoring, repair, or replacement. And my job isn't finished until you completely understand everything in your report. Additional details can be found at What's A Home Inspection? .
I use state-of-the-art inspection tools and reporting software in order to help my clients make smart decisions about the home that they want to buy. While a home inspection is not a prediction of future conditions and cannot reveal every concern that exists (or ever could exist), it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the necessary knowledge that you and your Real Estate Agent need to make an informed home-buying decision.
On the day of the inspection, it is best if you are present for the entire inspection. Witnessing problems first-hand will give you a better grasp of what is, and what is not an issue. Be sure to read the information at Unique Service to learn more about the importance of attending your inspection, as well as the special benefits of becoming a Golden Arrow client.
After your inspection, you will a receive a FREE copy of 'Now That You've Had a Home Inspection' , the home maintenance manual that includes tips for keeping your home in top condition.
