Pre-Purchase Inspections

Pre-Purchase Inspections

When you’re interested in putting an offer in on a home, a buyer’s home inspection is one of the best ways to protect your investment. A home inspection consists of a thorough, step-by-step examination of the different elements of the home.

This is done to determine if there are any serious safety issues, undisclosed repairs, or code issues with a home that you may be interested in buying. Hiring a home inspector helps you uncover issues that you may not notice on your own, even when you look at a home thoroughly.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Pre-Listing Inspections

A pre-listing home inspection is a home inspection that is requested by the seller once they decide to list their home on the market.

This is relatively uncommon – while most buyers will hire their own home inspector before purchasing a home, far fewer people invest in a pre-listing home inspection, as it is not required when selling a home.

However, a pre-listing home inspection can be a valuable tool to help you learn which parts of your home may need to be repaired in order to sell it quickly.

End of Warranty Inspections

End of Warranty Inspections

This is also called the 11 month inspection or the one-year inspection for some builders, which allows the homeowner to have any blemishes, flaws, or issues remedied. Before that one-year is up, you would want to hire a home inspector to investigate the home for anything you might not have noticed or see is happening.

This kind of inspection is a full look at your home from foundation to flue, and everything in between. Some inspectors only look at individual items or offer limited inspections. Make sure you know what you’re getting and opt for a full evaluation of the house.

What to Expect From Your Inspection

Whether you are buying, selling, or maintaining your home, Tideland Inspections provides professional and quality service from the moment you call us. Our licensed home inspectors will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, the leading home inspection association.

After we walk through the home together, we will personally explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in my easy-to-read Spectora report, that will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
