When a homebuyer asks seller to make repairs after the initial home inspection, a re-inspection ensures that the agreed upon repairs are completed as specified. The last thing you need is to request additional repairs and close on the house only to realize that the work is substandard and needs to be fixed again. In other words, a re-inspection will give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that things are done correctly and are in proper working order.
A re-inspection also helps when things like electrical work, plumbing, or roof repairs are an issue. Once the work is completed, it is perfectly acceptable to ask the seller for invoices and permits to ensure the work is done well and up to code.
Although a re-inspection is never mandatory, it can really help when a seller has made these kinds of repairs following your first home inspection. After the changes have been made, Ace Home Inspections will revisit the site and assess whether the repairs have been completed as agreed upon and report on the new condition of changed systems and components.
If you think you might need a re-inspection, contact Ace Home Inspections to discuss any areas of concern and schedule your appointment today.
Pre-Listing Inspections are for home sellers who want to find any issues in the home before potential buyers see it. No one wants to learn about problems with their home while they are in the latter stages of selling it. Essentially, pre-listing inspections are a way to uncover unknown repairs before a buyer’s home inspector discovers them. It is the perfect way to avoid unpleasant surprises that may stall negotiations or cause a buyer to walk away. In addition, it may even give you the upper hand in your negotiations.
Ace Home Inspections helps sellers start the process with their eyes wide open. For example, a pre-listing inspection is a useful way to determine the current condition of your home. And knowing the condition of your home will help you make an informed choice about an appropriate asking price. It can also help speed up the sales process because some buyers may no longer feel the need to do their own inspection. This could really help in the case of a motivated buyer or an especially hot housing market. Before your home is listed, Ace Home Inspections will inspect it thoroughly and offer our professional advice about what should be repaired before you put your home on the market. By having your home professionally inspected before it hits the market, you put yourself in position to get the most out of your investment.
A termite inspection is a visual observation of the readily accessible areas of your home for evidence of wood-destroying insects. The main reason for getting a termite inspection before buying a home is that you may not realize there is a problem until visible damage occurs; termite or wood-destroying insect damage may end up costing far more than you anticipated. Although termites are small, the damage that they cause to the structure of a home can be severe. Unfortunately, a professional home inspection may not uncover evidence of previous termite infestation. A termite inspection, however, involves a more detailed investigation of the foundations and structural integrity of your home.
At Ace Home Inspections, we will thoroughly examine your home’s interior and exterior structure for any signs of existing termite damage. Our inspector will look at your attic, basement, and any crawl spaces in addition to the exterior of your property. Because Ace Home Inspections is licensed in Termite Inspection, we are experts at finding signs of an infestation, determining where the termites are living, and offering professional advice about extermination and home repair.
