Buyer & Seller Inspections

 

A  home inspection is a visual inspection of the structure and components  of a home to find items that are not performing correctly or items that  are unsafe. If a problem or symptom of a problem is found the home  inspector will include a description of the problem in a written report  and may recommend further evaluation. Before you close, you need to  consider whether or not repairs are needed now and who will pay for  them.

A  home inspection is important because a buyer needs an affordable home  inspection to find out all the problems possible with the home prior to  moving in. It is recommended that you do not use a friend for an  inspection. You should have an un-bias inspection, so when the inspector  does find problems, they won't be easily minimized by the other parties  because of friendship.

Radon Testing

Radon comes from the ground. Its an odorless, tasteless and invisible particle. When we test for radon the property has to be closed for 12 hours prior to testing. Our test process takes 48 hours. From there we send to a certified lab for diagnosis. All results are delivered within 24 hours and will be recorded to Florida Department of Health. No two homes or commercial properties will be the same. We recommend a radon test every 5 years. Remember its the second leading cause of lung cancer compared to smoking.

Well Water Testing

Well water testing is required when a property has a well and for real estate transactions. We have a 3 part test and results are emailed to you within 72 hours. Availability is limited due to weekends.
