We suggest a thorough home inspection before you buy a foreclosed home

Platinum Property Inspections advises a thorough inspection before you purchase a foreclosed home in Prescott.Purchasing a foreclosed home may be a way to get a great deal, but you need to be careful! Platinum Property Inspections suggests a thorough home inspection before you buy a foreclosed home in Prescott.

Foreclosed homes that have been abandoned or neglected for months, or sometimes years, often come with hidden costs. These unanticipated costs can quickly turn what you thought was a great deal into a money pit. Here are some important tips to consider if you’re in the market for a foreclosed home:

Resolve any liens. Many municipalities have regulations regarding the maintenance of properties. If a bank owns a property, it will usually keep a lawn cutting schedule, but if it fails to do so, the municipality may come in and lien the property for maintenance costs. Liens can be placed on a property by unpaid contractors, utilities, homeowners associations, etc.

Seek out information on the house’s history. Arizona law requires a property seller to disclose material facts about the property
 .
Conduct a sewer scope. This is especially important for homes more than 20 years old. Sewer lines are often broken by tree roots. The lines may also be rotted, clogged, or damaged. Hire a plumbing company to snake a video camera through the line.

Above all, invest in a home inspection by a properly credentialed home inspector. For a very reasonable fee, a qualified home inspector can provide a complete report on the structure, mechanical and major components of the house and the property. A home inspection will give you a much better picture of what you are buying or give you the signal to walk away if it’s going to be too much to handle.

Before you buy a foreclosed home in Prescott, Platinum Property Inspections suggests a thorough home inspection. Call the experts at Platinum Property Inspections at 928-713-0889 to schedule your home inspection.

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.
