Post Purchase home inspections;

The last two years there has been a shortage of homes for sale (low inventory) as opposed to the number of buyers in the market purchasing homes. We are now seeing in many cases 20 plus home buyers putting in an offer to purchase a home. You may have been advised to wave the home inspection in hopes of being put to the the top of the list for acceptance. This I feel is a risk you as a home purchaser may be taking which may lead to unsafe conditions, health issues and water related issues. In the Northeast there are a lot of old homes and many have undergone remodeling. There are a lot of old homes being flipped as well. If you purchased a home and waived the home inspection, you should be aware there may be unsafe conditions, water related issues and radon in air and water just to name a few hazards and health issues. We have been seeing an uptick requests to conduct post purchase home inspections. 

What we are finding in many old homes live knob and tube wiring, unsafe wiring even with newer branch circuit wiring, underground fuel oil storage tanks, suspect microbial growth, water related issues such as roof leaks, plumbing leaks, heating and cooling issues, exterior siding and trim rot just to name some. 

Having a post purchase home inspection by us with 33 years of home inspection experience as well has having multiple licenses and past licenses in the fields of construction, septic systems ETC may be your best defense on heading off unsafe conditions and health concerns. 

Give us a call, TEXT or email and we can chat a bit about your purchase. We will not pressure you to have an inspection done, just give good solid advise. if you choose to have us conduct an inspection, I would request you wear clothing you don't mind getting dirty and stay with us shoulder to shoulder during the inspection. You will know the property a lot better and be able to go forward making good sound decisions. 

Home Buyer inspections
The better you understand your home the more you may enjoy it
We strongly encourage all of our clients to accompany us during the inspection. I suggest you wear clothing you don't mind getting a little dirty as I may want you to look at an area of concern.  You should feel free to ask the me any questions you may have during the inspection process. I will point out areas of the home that may be an issue and explain them to you. I will also show you the good points as well. Plus, we will explain what routine maintenance needed to keep the building in top condition. This will help you to get the most benefit from the inspection and gain the most understanding of the systems that make up your future home, condo, mobile home and how to maintain it.

You will receive a comprehensive narrative written report typically 50 plus pages (email) with photos and diagrams that is easy to understand. Everything identified during the inspection will be included in the report.

Armed with the information our report will provide, you may make your decision with confidence.

Home inspection for Sellers;
If you are planning on selling you home in the near future you may wish to consider a Pre-listing inspection. This will give you a better understanding of your home and may discover problems which the buyers inspector may find, giving you time to repair them. Armed with a thorough inspection and custom detailed report you may go forward in confidence selling your home.
