Before buying a previously owned home, or even an new home, a buyer can follow humorist Dave Barry's home inspection checklist from his "Homes and Other Black Holes" guide, which includes testing for "floor levelness: by suspending a rock from the end of a string."Ideally, it will point toward the floor," says Barry." If it points somewhere else, such as toward a wall, this is often an indication of nonlevelness."No use checking the plumbing, he adds. "It will work perfectly. It always does when you inspect it, because plumbing is one of the most intelligent life forms on the planet. ... It will wait until after you have bought the house [to break down]."
IMHO: If you are buying a home, and have decided to let your friend or family member (who may even have experience in the construction/contractor trade) "take a look at it" or "check it out"...you have made a conscious decision to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on an uninspected building.
BUYING A HOME?
ELIMINATE UNPLEASANT SUPRISES:
Your A.P.E. Home Inspector works for you, the home buyer. Not the seller, not the realtor, but only for you. Because of the home inspector's lack of involvement for the actual sale of the home, their non-biased evaluation will be beneficial in reporting to you the overall "health" of your potential new home.
SELLING A HOME?
ELIMINATE UNEXPECTED STRESS:
Scheduling a home inspection at the beginning of the selling process of a home, instead of near the end, expedites and makes the whole transaction of buying a home a much easier experience for all.
This inspection would aid the seller. Helping him to know the real condition of his home. If repairs are necessary, they can be made before the home is listed for sale. Sellers liability will be reduced and realtors can be more assured that a major defect down the road won't "kill the deal"! A professional pre-sale inspection report and sign are great sales tools. It sets your home apart from the thousands on the market. The more information prospective buyers have, the more thought they might give to purchasing the property.
Have A.P.E. perform your inspection. Have peace of mind knowing your home inspector performs to the highest standards in the industry.
