Hiring the right home inspection company……….

Home inspection companies are helping you make one of the biggest decisions in your life and you want to make sure that you are using a qualified company that will stand behind their work.  At Waypoint Property Inspections East we don’t use warranties that cause the client to have a false sense of security following the home inspection for 90 days.  When buying your next home, understand that the home inspection is a snapshot in time and after the inspection is completed, especially if there is a family living in the home, we have no control over what occurs in the home.

We appreciate that our inspectors are human and there is a possibilty that we may not find every little item that is damaged during the inspection, but if it is something that we should have seen, we have a professional services guarantee.  Waypoint Property Inspections East LLC will never walk away from a client if we did something wrong. We have been inspecting homes for over 13 years and can honestly say, we have seen just about everything.

The Importance Of A Pre-Listing Inspection

Boynton Beach, FL – Realtors, if you are currently working for a seller who is looking to increase their return… Wait, isn’t that everyone? If your seller has been renting out a home for years, is an investor without knowledge of the condition of the home, or if your seller has resided in the home for years consider a pre-listing inspection to increase their return.

Typically, when a home hasn’t been lived in by the seller, the listing will read something to the effect of, “seller will not make guarantees on the condition of the home.” You can see how this may be seen as a red flag to first time home buyers, even though there may be nothing wrong with the property. What if the same listing said, “seller will not make guarantees on the condition of the home. However, an inspection was done and shows no structural or mechanical issues. Report available upon request.” This shows buyers that your client was willing to go above and beyond. If a buyer doesn’t have to worry if the roof will pass for their conventional loan especially if they’ve been looking for quite some time, do you believe they’d be willing to make a higher offer?

In the case where something does come up during the inspection, these items can be used to simply make disclosures or the issues can be fixed. The fact that they were addressed can also be used to negotiate a higher price or better terms for your seller.

Buyers will still want to do their own inspection. However, knowing what will and won’t come back will make it less of a nail-biting experience.
