I was recently asked by Redfin about our home inspection process and what were some of the issues that were missed by a homeowner. As I thought about the many inspections done by AHI Residential & Commercial Inspection, the most missed item that stood out for me was water intrusion.
Water intrusion issues due to a lack of proper storm/groundwater control can cause a lot of damage especially, if the home is on a crawl space or basement, if the crawl space has not been inspected within the last year, we highly recommend getting a pre-listing inspection prior to putting the home on the market. The majority of the deals we see get terminated are due to damage present under the home. If you own a home with a crawlspace ask yourself when is the last time it has been visually inspected, if the answer is over three years or you can’t remember then it’s time to get an inspection done. – AHI Residential & Commercial Inspections
There are many issues that we find on the home inspection. Some are an easy fix, some require additional experience and/or
licensed contractors to handle the issue. When looking to put your home on the market, it’s best to get a pre-listing inspection by an unbiased, third party. Having a pre-listing home inspection before you put your home on the market allows you to understand any current or potential problem areas with the home that can be resolved before the buyers arrive.
