Are you moving in to a leased or rental property? Are you getting ready to list your property for sale? A Move-In Certified® home has been pre-inspected, which means that the seller can confirm that there are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement, and no known safety hazards. A Move-In Certified® Seller Inspection informs you of any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home pre-inspected now.
Mold Inspection & Testing
Mold is hot topic these days. INSPECTING, in other words, LOOKING for “apparent” mold or biological growth is included in the basic Home Inspection. It must be visible within accessible areas of the inspection. Whether or not a more extensive Mold Inspection or testing is necessary can be determined on-site after the Home Inspection is completed. Testing involves additional costs that include collecting physical and air samples in areas of concern and sending to a laboratory for verification. Read More…
There is more awareness about Radon today than ever before. The EPA reports that smoking, radon, and secondhand smoke are the leading causes of lung cancer. The EPA recommends that testing for Radon should be a standard requirement for EVERY Home Inspection. It doesn’t matter if the home is new or old, small or big; every house should be tested. Radon can enter the house from multiple areas including the garage, basement, crawl spaces, wells, etc. We use a third-party testing agency that specializes in Radon testing and uses state-of-the-art technology and equipment for continuous monitoring.
