They continuously update their knowledge base on industry best practices, guaranteeing a thorough and reliable evaluation of your potential new home.

We are readily available to answer any questions you may have in a clear and concise manner, ensuring you feel confident and empowered throughout the process.

Real estate inspection checklists are crucial tools for ensuring a comprehensive evaluation. Our inspectors utilize a rigorous and industry-recognized checklist, carefully examining all critical aspects of the property, from the foundation and roof to the electrical wiring and plumbing. No area goes unexamined, ensuring you receive a clear picture of the property’s condition.

Not a Buyer? You Too Can Benefit From Our Seller’s Home Inspection Service

While a pre-purchase home inspection is an essential safeguard for buyers, a seller’s home inspection can also be a valuable asset. By proactively identifying and addressing potential issues before listing your property, you can gain a significant advantage in the competitive housing market:

Attract Serious Buyers: A seller’s inspection report demonstrates transparency and can give potential buyers confidence in the property’s condition. This can significantly reduce the number of lowball offers and time spent on the market.

Potentially Command a Higher Asking Price: Knowing about and addressing any issues upfront strengthens your negotiating position. Buyers appreciate a well-maintained property, and a seller’s inspection report allows you to confidently showcase the value you’re offering.

Avoid Costly Repairs During Closing: Identifying potential problems early allows you to address them before they become deal-breakers during closing negotiations. This can save you thousands of dollars in repairs and prevent the emotional rollercoaster of a collapsed sale.

Investing in Confidence: Understanding the Cost of a Home Inspection

The cost of a home inspection is a small investment compared to the potential financial headaches a hidden problem could cause down the road. Think of it as an insurance policy for your future home; a proactive measure that safeguards your investment and provides invaluable mental peace. At Alternate Disputes, we offer competitive rates for our services, ensuring a valuable return on your investment. 

Real Estate Inspection Checklist – What Does a Typical Home Inspection Include?

Our inspectors follow a comprehensive real estate inspection checklist, ensuring no stone is left unturned during your pre-purchase home inspection. This detailed evaluation provides a clear picture of the property’s condition, empowering you to make informed decisions about your potential investment. Here’s a closer look at the key areas we examine:

  • Foundation and Structural Components: The foundation is the backbone of any home, literally. Our inspectors meticulously examine the foundation for cracks, signs of settling, water damage, or any other issues that could compromise the structural integrity of the property.

  • Roof and Exterior Walls: The roof and exterior walls are your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Our inspectors will assess the roof’s condition, including shingles, flashing, and overall structure. They will also examine the exterior walls for signs of water damage, cracks, siding issues, and proper ventilation.

  • Electrical Wiring and Plumbing Systems: A safe and functional electrical and plumbing system is crucial for any home. Our inspectors will examine the electrical panel, wiring, outlets, and fixtures for any potential safety hazards or outdated components. The plumbing system will also be thoroughly inspected, checking for leaks, functionality of fixtures, and drainage.

  • Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems: A comfortable indoor climate is essential. Our inspectors will evaluate the functionality and efficiency of the HVAC system, including the furnace, air conditioner, ductwork, and thermostats. They will also check for proper ventilation to ensure good air quality.

  • Kitchen and Bathroom Fixtures and Appliances (Functionality, Not Cosmetic Condition): While a sleek, modern kitchen and bathroom are aesthetically pleasing, a home inspection focuses on functionality. Our inspectors will examine the functionality of sinks, faucets, toilets, showers, tubs, and garbage disposals. They will also check appliances like dishwashers, ovens, and range hoods to ensure they are in working order.

  • Interior Features Like Doors, Windows, and Flooring: Our inspectors will examine the functionality of doors and windows, checking for proper operation, weather sealing, and any potential security concerns. Interior features like flooring will also be assessed for signs of water damage, unevenness, or potential safety hazards.

  • Presence of Termites or Other Wood-Destroying Insects (Additional Service Fee May Apply): While not included in our standard inspection, we understand the concern for potential termite or wood-destroying insect infestation. We can provide a separate inspection for these pests for an additional service fee. This specialized inspection can give you peace of mind regarding the structural integrity of the wood components in the property.
