The home buying process can be confusing and stressful. Not only do you need to consider things such as price and location, you also have to worry about whether the house itself has any problems that could become costly surprises down the road.
An Advantage Inspection is an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the house. It provides you an expert opinion and professional report on the condition of the physical structure and various systems within a house. Giving you peace of mind on what is likely the largest purchase you will ever make.
In order to prepare the report, an inspector must conduct a visual inspection of the house. The inspection process typically takes about 3 hours to complete. This of course may vary, according to the size and condition of the home. Advantage strongly encourages you to attend a Post Inspection Review and Walk Through toward the end of the inspection. Arrangements can be made to have the post review by phone if you or a representative are unable to attend. This will give you a chance to ask questions and become familiar with the systems of the home.
We will inspect all the structural elements and systems of the home. Items that will typically be included in an inspection are:
- Framing (structure)
- Roof and attic
- Electrical system
- Plumbing system
- Heating and air conditioning systems
- Additional items and systems unique to a particular home can also be inspected.
When the inspection is complete, we will tell you of any problems that were discovered and discuss them with you. We will also tell you about any routine maintenance that should be performed, as well as answer any questions you may have. You will also receive a full electronic report of the inspection shortly after the Post Inspection Review.
