Why you need an inspection on your new home

Platinum Property Inspections can handle the inspection on your new Prescott homeYou’ve found the perfect home in Prescott, the paperwork is in process. Platinum Property Inspections would like to remind you of one more important thing you need before closing the deal - a complete home inspection. Not only will a home inspection give you peace of mind about your new home purchase, but it will give you confidence that there are no safety or structural issues. Here are a few reasons why you should have a home inspection before closing on your new home:

  • Your new home looks perfect to you. It’s a big investment and you assume everything is in working order. Getting a home inspection will ensure that it does not become a nightmare. A home inspection will look at all of the major systems (electrical, plumbing, structure) to make sure everything is in good condition, or if problems are found, they can be addressed before taking possession of the home, rather than becoming a major headache after you move in.
  • Home inspections are affordable. This is the “no-brainer” reason. Depending on the size of the home, you can expect a home inspection report to cost approximately $300-$500. Compared to the sizeable investment you are about to make, this small price tag can save you money and frustration. There may be very little, if anything, wrong with the home, but the investment in a home inspection will assure both the buyer and seller that everything is in order.
  • Home inspections will review any potential safety issues such as: carbon monoxide, mold, blocked chimney, structural or water damage, etc. These type of safety issues are often things that are not visible when walking through the house. Only an in-depth inspection will bring these to light so they can be reviewed.
  • A home inspection will confirm that any additions or changes that have been made were properly permitted and built to meet local building codes. This is important because when you become the homeowner, the responsibility of any open or non-permitted construction will become your responsibility.
  • A professional home inspection will check to make sure that any required safety features, such as fire alarms and CO2 detectors are in place.
    After a home inspection, you will receive a complete report on the condition of the property, as well as notes on any items that need repairs or any damage to the home.

Be advised, not surprised, when you are purchasing your new home. Prescott Property Inspections would like to work with you to make sure you know all about your new Prescott home before closing the transaction. Please call us today, or have your real estate professional call, to schedule your home inspection at 928-713-0889.

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.
