Many homeowners come to us asking about finding a San Francisco home inspection service they can trust. A San Francisco home inspection doesn’t have to be an uncertain or stressful process. Home buyers have an equally strong interest in having a home inspected to ensure they don’t buy a house that has damage or faults that make it’s actual value less than the price at time of sale. Whether you’re a homeowner or in the market to purchase a house, make sure you contact our team of professionals to ensure your home inspection gets done the right way. Here are few thing you should know from the perspective of a home buyer or seller.
Home sellers should know that California case law states that it is the responsibility of the seller to disclose relevant facts regarding the sale of the property through a Transfer Document Statement. So if you’re selling one to four residential units, you are legally obligated to inform all prospective buyers of all conditions of the property you are selling. A listing inspection report can’t be used as a substitute for a Transfer Document Statement disclosure, however it does provide a means to give prospective buyers additional information from an unbiased third party when a professional inspector is used. This is why it’s always important to choose an independent inspection company like us.
If you’re a prospective buyer, you’ll definitely want the peace of mind that comes with a complete home inspection. This is likely one of the biggest, if not the biggest investment you’ll ever make in your life, so you need to make sure there aren’t any hidden flaws you don’t know about with the property you’re about to purchase. Whether the house is new, old, custom or tract built, every home in San Francisco needs to have an inspection when bought or sold to establish an accurate, fair valuation. If the home is of new construction, a home inspection can also be a vital way to ensure the quality of construction is acceptable, and help you address any issues before the construction project is complete. This will help you avoid further problems down the line by taking care of problems early before they can become bigger.
When looking for a home inspector in San Francisco, make sure you identify one who is trained and experienced in home inspection and has the proper insurance. Get your home inspection done right by choosing a trusted team like ours – a poor inspection job could cost you a heap of money if even one single defect is missed in the report.
