Inspection A professional pre-purchase home inspection is performed for the potential buyer. A systematic and
thorough examination of all the homes systems and components may identify major defects before you buy. To
minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties you will want to learn as much about the home as
possible. The home inspection will also give you important information on items that will need maintenance
to keep them in good condition. Every home ages and wears differently and the buyer is best served by
having a comprehensive inspection so you can make an informed decision.
New Construction Home
A Home Inspection of a newly constructed home will ensure the builder has not overlooked any details. The
inspection will determine if the home requires last minute repairs that should be completed before the
close of escrow. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they create
larger issues that could be expensive to repair if they were overlooked.
One Year Warranty
Inspections Most builders provide a one year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of
time the new owner develops a punch list of corrections for the builder to repair under the warranty
coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to an untrained eye. It is prudent to have a professional home
inspector perform a home warranty inspection and develop a list of items that you may have missed that
need repairs by the builder. If these items were missed, the builder is not obligated to make repairs
after the warranty has expired.
Inspection A professional pre-listing inspection is performed for the Seller. Defects unknown to the seller
often lead to long delays and additional negotiations of the real estate transaction. Accurate disclosure
regarding the condition of the home will increase the likelihood of a successful close of escrow.
Maintenance and Safety
Inspection This is a systematic evaluation of the home’s systems and components. The inspection findings can
be used to troubleshoot problems and develop a repair and maintenance strategy. This will help to extend
the service life of the systems and components in the home and remedy potential major problems.
