Home Inspections for Home Buyers

When purchasing a new home for you and your family to live in for years to come, you need to know all the risks involved. Buying a home is a big investment, so don’t let that investment turn into thousands of dollars of repairs in the near future. By hiring a professional home inspector to perform a comprehensive inspection of the property, you will be able to identify any major issues before making an informed offer. Our real estate inspectors are trained to ensure that your dream home is safe to live in, and something that will increase in value for years to come.

Home Inspections for Home Sellers

A pre-sale home inspection is a smart investment for sellers that want to get ahead of any issues that may arise during a home sale. Straight Answer Home Inspections can identify any and all issues with home before it goes on the market. Having your home inspected before you sell can help you avoid potential buyers backing out of the sale after they inevitably perform an inspection of their own. This will allow you to repair and upgrade the necessary components on your own time with contractors of your own choosing, and can end up increasing the value of your home pre-market.

Pre Home Warranty Expiration Inspections

Pre-warranty expiration home inspections should always be done a month before your new home’s warranty ends. Not all issues will be prevalent to you in the first year of living in the home, so it is smart to have a professional make sure that nothing has gone wrong with your beautiful new home. We recommend keeping a list of small issues that you have noticed during your first year in the home so our inspectors can take a closer look during the warranty period. Not all issues will be obvious and some can end up being costly if they are not taken care of during warranty. Give us a call today to schedule your pre-warranty expiration inspection.

Home Inspection Cost

The cost of your home inspection depends largely on the size of the home, the age, and the services requested. Older homes may require more of an in-depth look than new construction homes, and larger homes obviously take more time to get through. We strive to keep our rates as low as possible and remain one of the best companies in the area in terms of service and value. Give us a call now to discuss our competitive pricing!

A quality home inspector will be able to detect and document any and all defects with the property that you may not see on your own. Knowledge is power during negotiations for a home sale and a good home inspection can end up saving you thousands of dollars. Additionally, the majority of mortgage companies require that an inspection be done prior to approving any loan.

It isn’t required to attend the inspection, however it is a good way to learn more about the home and the possible repairs it may need. We welcome anyone that wants to learn during our inspection process.
Every issue with the property during inspection will be documented in the inspection report. Once you have received the report, it is up to you and the other party in the real estate transaction to negotiate a deal based on the findings. Home inspections are not “Pass” or “Fail”, they are simply to help you make an informed decision on the purchase or sale of the property.
In most cases during a real estate transaction, the buyer will pay for the inspection to be performed as it is designed to protect the buyer’s investment.
