“Getting Your Home Ready for Sale”
ProSpec has the experience to help you understand what will help you get your home sold and what items will typically hold up a sale. We work with our sellers and their agents to help them with a list of repair items and provide approximate costs. We even have referral contractors if they need help with the repairs. Your real estate agent can also provide a list of qualified contractors if major items are discovered during the inspection. Having all maintenance items inspected and repaired gives you confidence when negotiating the sale of your home.
Construction Phase Inspections:
If you are buying a new home or having a home built it is important to know that even the best contractor can miss items that can show up later as costly to you as the homeowner. We all know that the quality of construction materials is often not what it used to be. This now leads many buyers to have independent inspections of their construction projects inspected during various stages of the construction process. These inspections are beyond what the city or county building inspector will be able to conduct. Our Phase inspections include foundation or slab, frame, rough electrical, mechanical, plumbing and seismic anchors. We follow up with roofing and exterior finish and eventually final inspection.
These inspections are relatively inexpensive and they protect your purchase, preventing unpleasant surprises, ensures conformance to industry standards, and helps provide the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.
New Home Warranty Inspections:
Many builders provide a very limited warranty for a new home. Some California laws require certain warranties. Often, after the project is completed, it is difficult to get someone from the company to respond to a warranty item after the first 12 months. During this 12 month period, it is important that a buyer develop a list of items for the contractor. There are many defects that will not be obvious to a homeowner. This is why you should consider obtaining a property inspection and allow us to assist you with the list of issues that will likely be addressed by your builder at no cost to you.
Consider your attic space for example. Have you crawled into your attic area to see the condition of your Heating and Air ducts? Would you know what to look for? This is just one of a dozen items we look at in an attic space. We will take digital photos of all defects and provide a report that you and the builder will understand.
