Know about Potential Problems Before You Buy a Home
Curb appeal is important in the real estate market, however, homebuyers must be careful not to be influenced by aesthetics/cosmetics. The primary intent of a professional Home Inspection is focused on education, and is designed to uncover potential problems with structural or mechanical systems before purchase.
Eliminate Problems Before You Sell Your Home
Most professional Real Estate agents are currently encouraging selling clients to have a full pre-listing Inspection performed prior to putting their home on the market. This affords an opportunity to know about, and address issues before they become a snag during the negotiation process. Statistically, typical buyers feel more at ease observing a professional pre-listing Inspection report prior to ratification of contract.
Engaging in the Inspection Process
We encourage clients to actively engage in the Inspection process. This is your opportunity to review your new or existing home from top to bottom with your Inspector, learn about working systems, and to ask relevant questions.
That stated, we understand challenging schedules all too well. If you cannot personally attend, do not be discouraged. The reporting software is intended to be user friendly to all parties, (i.e. Settlement Attorney, Loan Officer, Underwriter, Processor, Appraiser, Listing Agent etc.) and conveys all essential information relevant to presenting contingency data.
Within 24 hours of the physical Inspection process, Homestar will deliver a custom PDF report to the client, and any other intended user authorized by the client. Should you have questions or concerns after receiving your report, we encourage you to speak directly with your Inspector at any time. Homestar Inspectors are on call daily, and will return correspondence within a 4 hour timeframe if not addressed immediately.
