Home inspections and what to expect

Platinum Property Inspections is your expert for thorough home inspections in Prescott and all of Yavapai CountyAt long last you’ve found the perfect home...or so it seems. It has all the features you wanted and it looks like your dream is coming true. But just because it looks like it’s in good condition doesn’t mean there are no problems. Platinum Property Inspections reminds you that before you finalize that home sale in Prescott, you need to have a thorough home inspection. And here’s what you should expect from your home inspector:

Certification: When you choose a home inspector, you should ask about qualifications and experience. If a home inspector is certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors, you can be assured that the inspector has undergone rigorous technical exams and has performed over 250 inspections prior to certification.

What will be inspected: The inspection should include the structure of the home and the home’s systems, including: electrical, plumbing, heating/cooling, walls, ceilings, windows, doors, roof, foundation, floors, basement, attic, and insulation. Keep in mind that if you have the home inspected in winter, there may be issues that are only discoverable during the summer months, such as the air conditioning unit. Inaccessible systems or areas, such as septic tanks or wells, may need an additional inspection by a someone who specializes in those areas.

Ask questions: Your home inspector will provide a thorough report of the home’s condition. The report should give you an idea of the severity of any problems, and an estimate of the cost to repair them. If you are able to be present for the home inspection, you may have a better understanding of any issues that are detected. Being present for the inspection gives you the opportunity to ask questions of the inspector, and learn how to best maintain systems of the home.

The report: A typical home inspection could take two to three hours, and you should receive a detailed report with all the inspector’s findings. Problems that are identified could be minor, and your inspector can advise how to best deal with them. If you find that the problems are more than you want to deal with, discuss with your real estate agent or seller. You may find the seller is willing to make repairs or you may be able to cancel the sales contract.

5 out of 5 stars After a big flooding in my area, I had a lot of standing water in the basement. I called this company for a thorough home inspection, and they found mold contamination everywhere in the house. Thanks to their remediation plan, my home is back to normal now, and I am confident my family is safe!

5 out of 5 stars They were very clear and helpful as soon as they answered the phone. They scheduled us the very next day. When they came, they went right to work. They explain what they will do very clearly and answer all question thoughtfully. They a have a mobile mini-van that has everything in it, including a printer. You get your home inspection printed out immediately. Very competent people. They also take a credit card, which is nice because ALL our cash was wrapped up in our down payment. I would use them again for sure.

5 out of 5 stars They are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. All of them did a thorough inspection on the home we are planning to buy and then took the time to answer all of our questions on the spot. We left the inspection with a notebook complete with a summary of the inspection, color photos and detailed information on everything inspected. The best part though was their willingness to answer more question several days after the inspection. They truly offer superior customer service before, during and after the job is done.
