    The Benefits of a Wells Home Inspection for Home Buyers

    Finding the right Home Inspector is critical when buying your home.  You need one who can deliver accurate, unbiased professional results.  The Home Inspection is intended to provide you with an accurate assessment of the homes interior and exterior areas.  It is intended to allow you to enter a huge financial commitment with peace of mind and confidence. 

    A good Home Inspection can provide you with peace of mind, knowing you’ve made a sound buying decision.  A good Home Inspector will find the items in need of repair and discuss these with you, explaining in detail the implications of each item.  The Home Inspector will also provide you with critical maintenance tips and provide you with books for future reference related to understanding your home and the maintenance and care it needs.

    A good Home Inspection will reduce the risk of unwanted “surprises” after you move in.   

    When hiring a Home Inspector, ensure you look at their Standards of Practice to understand clearly what is inspected as this can vary from one Inspector to another.

    With the Multiple Offer Sales all the rage, you as a buyer may be put at a huge disadvantage and be told to not place any conditions on your offer.  To meet this unique situation I provide a  Walk Through Home Inspection that is custom tailored to meet these specific needs.  
    What is a Walk Through Home Inspection, And Does It Replace A Regular Home Inspection?
    During the walkthrough you are focused most often on architectural design, floor coverings, new conveniences and many cosmetic items which are important to comfort and living in the home with your family.  However, you neither have the education nor the time to focus on the structural, mechanical and electrical conditions of the property.  The Walk Through Home Inspection is designed to focus on these areas and to offer the real estate agent or potential home buyers a system to spot a few of the promptly available main imperfections or deficiencies in the major components and systems of a home. 
    The Walk Through Home Inspection however is not intended to, nor does it have time to provide the ability to detect all flaws, problems and/or occurrences that may live in a certain home, but is designed to attempt to uncover at least the critical ones.

    Do I Need a Walk Through home Inspection?

    The Walk Through Home Inspection will provide the expertise of a trained professional to take a look at the home and attempt to uncover major deficiencies.  It however is unable to find them all due to time constraints, which sometimes are limited to an hour or hour and half.  Practically it is impossible to perform a proper Home Inspection during that timeframe, and the client must understand this.  It is intended as a solution which attempts to reduce risk but can not eliminate it. 

    Obviously a full Home Inspection is better, but the Walk Through Inspection is intended to eliminate as much risk as possible when market is hot.

  • The Benefits of a Wells Home Inspection for Home Sellers

    A pre-listing Home Inspection will allow you to realize the full potential of the home, the strengths and weaknesses.  Allowing you to price the home appropriately or fix the items in advance, providing an increased value and price point. 

    The Move In Certified Home allows potential buyers to download the Home Inspection report beforehand, allowing potential buyers to view the home with confidence.  By providing a professional, unbiased report the buyers can have the full assurance they need to move ahead quickly.  

    The added value in having a Certified Master Inspector, with the strong Code of Ethics helps to provide the additional level of confidence buyers need.  Furthermore, for a small fee to the buyer, I am able to visit the site with them, review findings from the report and discuss any items in detail. 

    A thorough Move In Certified Home Inspection before you put your house on the market provides you and your buyers the complete peace of mind from knowing the true condition of your house.

    A thorough Move In Certified Home Inspection before you put your house on the market allows you repair items which could pose a problem during negotiations or even mean a reduction in your asking price. 

    A thorough Move In Certified Home Inspection before you put your house on the market reduces the chances of any last minute “surprises” which could delay or derail a sale.

    When hiring a Home Inspector, ensure you look at their Standards of Practice to understand clearly what is inspected as this can vary from one Inspector to another.
