Buying a new home or commercial property can be a stressful time. National Home Inspection & Mold Services is dedicated to alleviating some of that stress by making the buyer home inspections process thorough and straightforward. Our InterNACHI certified inspectors will provide buyers with superior, unbiased reports on the property. If you’re buying a residential or commercial property in the South Florida Region, then let our client focused inspectors make the process a little easier for you.
Why Does a Buyer Need an Inspection?
As a buyer, you want to ensure that the property you are about to purchase is what you expect. Oftentimes, the excitement of buying a new home can make us overestimate the good features of the property while downplaying the trouble spots. Our detailed reports provide you with a clear look at all the features of the home so that you can make a fully informed decision.
You can be confident that the inspection will be done to the highest industry standards. Our inspectors are certified by the InterNACHI and continuously update their training with new methods, equipment, and up to date information. And because our reports are professional and unbiased they can carry more weight than if the inspection was provided by non certified individuals or a well intentioned friend or relative.
The Inspection Process
Depending on the services you request, the property will be inspected from top to bottom, inside and out. We will visually examine each section of the building, including:
- 4 point inspection: This includes the Roof, Plumbing, Wiring, and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning)
- Interior, Exterior, Doors, and Windows
- Wind Mitigation: This tests the building and its components for durability against the wind or for damage caused by the wind
- Water Quality: We test for bacteria, lead, and other waterborne threats
- Mold and Air Inspection: We check the home for mold or risk factors for mold
- Termite Inspection: We look for signs of insects or damage by WDO (wood destroying organisms)
- Pool or Additional Structures: Any additional structures on the property will also be thoroughly inspected
The size of the property and the services requested will determine the length of the inspection process. It may take a few hours so that we can make our inspection report as detailed and thorough as possible. Any trouble spots, or areas that have the potential to become troublesome, will be noted.
We will give you the full, easy-to-read report so that you can continue the buying process fully informed. Once you have the report, we recommend bringing it to your agent or the selling party as soon as possible. Make notes of anything in the report that you would like the seller to consider addressing before the sale is finalized.
Who is Present at Buyer Home Inspections?
During home inspections it is possible that the seller and/or the agent may be present. As the buyer, it can be useful for you to also be present while the property is inspected. This is an excellent opportunity for you to ask any questions while the inspection is happening, keeping you more informed. It’s important to remember however that the inspector may need to concentrate in order to get the most thorough results possible, so we recommend keeping most non-essential questions until they have finished.
The Cost of Inspection
The final cost for home inspections for residential or commercial properties depends on several factors. The size of the property being inspected as well as the services requested can alter the final cost.
