The Value of a Home Inspection……

Are you or your client selling or buying a new home? 

If you are selling your home do you know about all the details of your home?

The age of your major components and the condition?  Wouldn’t you like the opportunity to fix any conditions that can help you to get more money when you sell your home?

It is a proven fact that when a Pre-Listing inspection is completed on a home and the homeowner is willing to fix any items of significance prior putting the property on the market, the home will sell for more money.

Your client is purchasing a new home, whether it is new construction or a resale, a competent home inspection company should be retained to inspect the home that is being purchased.  May times we are told, “I am purchasing a new home why should I get it inspected?”  Well when we explain what we find even on new construction regarding defects, the client is happy to us Waypoint to perform these new construction inspections.  If you are purchasing a resale, it is even more important that a thorough home inspection be completed.

Why Radon Inspections Are Important in South Florida

Waypoint Property Inspections East, LLC has become licensed through the Florida Department of Health to provide our clients with the opportunity to have a Radon inspection completed in conjunction with their home inspection.  This can also be completed for current homeowner if they want to find out of they have a Radon issue in their home.

Radon is a gas that is odorless and tasteless.  When you breathe in air that contains Radon, you increase your chances of contracting lung cancer.  The Surgeon General of the United States has stated that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer today.  The EPA has also provided updated statistics regarding radon and it’s health effects.

EPA Risk Assessment for Radon in Indoor Air
EPA has updated its estimate of the lung cancer risks from exposure to radon in
indoor air. The Agency’s updated risk assessment, EPA Assessment of Risks from
Radon in Homes (EPA 402-R-03-003, June 2003), is available at http://www.epa.
gov/radon/pdfs/402-r-03-003.pdf as a downloadable Adobe Acrobat PDF file. EPA’s
reassessment was based on the National Academy of Sciences’ (NAS) report on the
Health Effects of Exposure to Radon (BEIR VI, 1999). The Agency now estimates
that there are about 21,000 annual radon-related lung cancer deaths, an estimate
consistent with the NAS Report’s findings.

Waypoint Property Inspections East, llc is happy to help you determine if the home that you are buying, selling or just living in is truly a Healthy Home.  Give us a call at 561.676.0546 to schedule your radon test today.

Why You Should Have a Home Inspection

You have made a decision to purchase a new home. Whether it is a condominium on the intercoastal in Boca Raton, a equestrian home in Wellington to keep your horses on, a townhome in Coral Springs, the dream beach cottage in Jupiter or a home in Boynton Beach to escape to on weekends, you need to know all there is to know about this new home.

You have friends and family that have their own opinion about home inspections and whether they are worth the money and effort. This is your home and the fact is, the answer is yes. they are worth the time and money. You are making what may be the largest purchase in your lifetime. Three or four visits to the house will get you familiar with the layout, the property and give you a chance to come up with decorating ideas.

It does not tell you whether or not the electrical system is correctly wired, if there is a problem in the attic because there is a leak in the roof, the shower in bathroom #4 needs a new control stem in the shower or there is a structural crack in the exterior wall of the garage. Your brother’s friend who has had a summer job working construction in Boynton Beach is not qualified to tell you what needs attention in your home. We are home inspectors and that is all we do.

A qualified and licensed home inspector can provide you with a written report that may save you a lifetime of headaches and countless amounts of money.
