Buyers (and Sellers) Be Aware!

Top 10 defects found during home inspection*

  1. Foundation and drainage issues
  2. Unprofessional (un-permitted) electrical work
  3. Minor roof leaks
  4. Heat and A/C maintenance issues
  5. Homeowner repairs that are un-permitted
  6. Structural settling
  7. Plumbing problems
  8. Water and/or air intrusion
  9. Crawl space or attic problems like mold or pest damage
  10. Upgrades, remodel, or repair work in which no permit was pulled (like a garage conversion into a bedroom).

Whether you’re buying or selling a home, getting a home inspection is key.

  • For sellers, getting a pre-sale inspection will help you in preparing your home for sale, and help you avoid any surprises that may pop up once you receive an offer from a buyer.
  • For buyers, getting peace of mind, gaining knowledge about the home you plan to invest in, and negotiating repair costs with the sellers can be a huge help!
