Why Buyers Need a Home Inspection
Remember… your home is most likely the single largest investment you will make in your lifetime. Protect yourself and your investment. A professional residential property inspection can help protect and secure your investment before you make the purchase.
Why Sellers Need a Home Inspection
A professional home inspection prior to listing your home may result in getting top dollar for your home. Defects won’t become a stumbling block. You get the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if you are qualified. Your liability may be reduced by adding professional documentation in your disclosure statement.
Why New Homes Need a Home Inspection
New houses can be plagued with hidden defects. Did you know, city building inspectors do not go into attics, or inspect electrical outlets and switches? You don’t want to find out about defective items when you are ready to sell your home; the costs of repairs may sit solely on you.
Standards of Professional Practice
In Arizona all Home Inspectors are required to follow the Standards of Professional Practice as adopted by the Arizona Board of Technical Registration. All Arizona home inspections must be Certified with the state and in compliance with these standards.
