WHY GET AN INSPECTION
REASONS TO BOOK YOUR INSPECTION
EVEN NEW CONSTRUCTION IS NOT PERFECT
Many defects found during your comprehensive home inspection are not visible to the average buyer. It may take the knowledge, skills, tools, and objectivity of a 1st Inspection Svcs home inspector to see a problem.
(Often construction is done by the lowest bidder. Sometimes this means the materials are inferior, and/or the work done is sub-standard. Take no chances on your next property inspection.)
WHY HAVE A HOME INSPECTION
If anyone, including your Agent, tells you a home inspection is not needed, you should reconsider your relationship with that person.
Due diligence means looking out for your interests, and your realtor’s duty to recommend an inspection when buying any property, whether a Home, Condo, or even Commercial property. We work for you and only you, not the realtor, not the lender, not your insurance company….. YOU.
NO PROPERTY IS SOLD ‘AS IS”
Unless you plan on tearing down the entire structure, you should have a property inspection performed. You can make your offer contingent on the home inspection findings.
(When spending money on anything, you should have as much information as possible about your purchase. We can help you make an informed decision.)
THE PRICE MAY SEEM LIKE A DEAL, BUT IS IT?
Sometimes what seems like a bargain is anything but…
A comprehensive home inspection may reveal problems in the way of repairs or deferred maintenance that may not be easily seen. Remember that the cost of maintenance on things such as HVAC, Plumbing, Roofing, etc., can all add up and become extremely expensive.

UNIT OWNERS PAY FOR EVERYTHING
Buying a Condo is not an easy way out of the burden of repairs and maintenance. Home inspectors are looking for the same issues one may find in a whole house inspection. The same systems in a Home are also present in a Condo. Many people do not realize that even though HVAC is in the walls, the unit owner is responsible for all repair and maintenance costs. A Condo Inspection will look at the systems within the unit and the common areas. You are responsible for your percentage of costs in repairs and maintenance of all common building systems and areas. Sometimes there will be a special assessment added to your CAM fees to pay for unexpected repairs.
LAWS ONLY PROTECT WHEN THE FACTS ARE KNOWN
According to Florida law, a seller must attach a disclosure document alerting the buyer to any defects or hazards that the seller knows about. This includes basic house systems and things such as lead or radon. This law is only good if the seller knows and tells about the problems.
Most people have no idea as to the actual condition of their home as they are not trained in Home Inspections. The very fact that many things are found wrong during a typical house inspection is proof enough. When you choose us, you are getting highly trained, certified, and professional home inspectors.
