Investor Property Inspection
Performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. These 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 ensure the identification of needed repairs following a 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.
A home inspection prior to placing a home 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. If 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 sale.
Performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder Warranty. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed
