Featured Business – House Call Home Inspection
The home buying process can be a daunting and arduous task for anyone, from the new homeowner to experienced real estate veterans looking to add to their portfolio. Finding the ideal property that fits your individual parameters and dealing with all of the potential paperwork involved is stressful enough, so one of the last elements that the home buyer wants to worry about is the underlying and often unseen condition of the property itself. The homebuyer wants to believe they are purchasing a property that the previous owner has maintained and kept structurally sound in good faith, but unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.
The job for House Call Home Inspections is to look for all of the potential hidden problems that a property may have prior to your purchase. Their home inspections are an unbiased, honest, and a professional assessment of the condition of the house. When inspecting a property, their experts try to provide as thorough of a report as humanly possible, looking at all of the following aspects: the framing of the house (structurally), roof, gutter, and attic assessment, the foundation of the property, the walls, a complete diagnostic of the electrical system and wiring, a thorough inspection of the plumbing system to make sure it is functioning properly and there are no leaks, an assessment of the heating and air conditioning systems, a complete check-listed examination of the kitchen and bathrooms, an evaluation of the cosmetics of the property (e.g., sidings, floorboards, and paint condition), as well as conditions of the windows and insulation rating for the home.
In addition to a regular and thorough inspection of a home, if there are any other specific or unique items or systems that you need inspected, they are happy to help.
As a part of our customer-friendly service, we strongly encourage all of our clients to accompany our expert team during the inspection of a property. You should always feel free to ask the inspector(s) any questions that you may have during the process so that a professional can best educate you on what they are seeing and what you should know. During an inspection, the team at House Call will show you both the good points of a home as well as any concerning elements that the property may have. On top of this, you will be provided with on the spot suggestions for what may require routine maintenance to keep the home in top condition. Once the inspection is complete, you will get a detailed and comprehensive report in the form of a written document for your own records. With the information contained in the report, you can be sure to make a decision on the property with confidence.
Regardless of whether you choose the courteous and detail-oriented people at House Call Home Inspections or not, you should always have a professional home inspection performed to know exactly what you are getting (or not getting) in any particular property. If you are at the point in the home buying process of making a formal offer and a professional inspection hasn’t been completed, you will want to make sure the contract you are getting ready to sign has an inspection contingency in it. This will ensure that either the seller or yourself will employ the services of a reputable home inspection service. If you aren’t satisfied with what an inspection finds, the inspection contingency will allow you to go back to the bargaining table and negotiate a lower price point or agree on repairs prior to officially closing on the property.
