Additional Home Inspection Services

Investor Property Inspections

Includes Multi-Unit Housing

Investor property inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant's departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.

Seller Certified Home Program (Pre-Listing Inspections)

Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.

 

Residential Construction Draw Inspections

Our services are primarily tailored to meet the needs of our construction lender clients; with independent solutions that are tailored to their unique needs.  We provide residential construction consulting and draw inspections services to individual project owners, banks and other financial institutions. We know that sound business practices are critical and include obtaining independent specialized advice.

 

During the construction process we will inspect the residential job site and furnish a report on the status of the project. Our report includes percentage complete of all phases of construction and the total percent complete.  We also provide comments concerning any job site hazards, safety issues and/or cleanliness problems noted and pictures.

 

Most of our residential inspections are made on pre-designed forms using percentages of construction based on industry averages.  We can use your forms or ones designed by our company.  The percentages on our forms are based on actual local averages for your market area and national industry averages. 

 

On larger residential or remodeling projects we can also work from the contractor's original cost projections and create an inspection form based on their numbers.
