We are thorough in our home inspections and use the latest equipment and techniques to provide a detailed report to aid your property buying decisions. Regardless of the age of the home, there are always things that need to be repaired, fine-tuned and dialed-in. Protect your savings, let Rough Country Home Inspections ensure you don’t fall into a money pit.
A standard home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. The scope of work may be modified by the client and inspector prior to the inspection process.
“Before the home inspection, buyers should write down observations they have made when visiting the house that they want the inspector to review,” says Dan Steward, president and CEO of Pillar To Post Inc. in Tampa, Fla. This helps inspectors address any concerns buyers may have.
Attending your home inspection is just the first step. Reading your inspection report generated both by our home inspectors and any reports and disclosures provided by the seller is key to avoiding a money pit. Money pits often occur when buyers take a place not knowing how much work truly needs to be done.
Some home sellers elect not to correct every defect found in the home inspection report. Instead, they acknowledge the defects to buyers and explain that the asking price has been adjusted to reflect the estimated cost of repairs. However, the defects still need to be addressed and corrected.
