Thinking of Buying and/or Selling a Home Inspections are Crucial
Before you ever buy another home, allow us to inspect your foundation. You may call another home inspector, but we truly do not encounter many who understand foundation and structural repair. It is not something that is taught during their short training period; it takes years of experience in the field, and years of studying this specific industry and science before one can become proficient in this industry. 30% of our waterproofing business comes from homeowners who just purchased a home, where the inspector misdiagnosed their moisture and mold problems, and told them to simply extend their downspouts and grade. Good advice, just not a good solution.
We will inspect your foundation or your entire home if you like, and give you a detailed inspection report.
How To Add Value to Your Home Before Selling
Before you list your home for sale, you may want to fix and renovate your basement to add value. Call us - we can renovate your basement, give you a full lifetime warranty, which you can pass to the new homeowner as a selling benefit.
It is estimated that 90% to 120% of any cost of basement renovation is added value to the home`s selling price. Plus, it looks better, and helps you sell your home quickly and without any disclosure issues or having to sell "As Is". Selling "As Is" decreases the home`s value by 10% - 25%. Realtors know this - ask one.
