The Unwritten Home Inspection - New Verbal Walk Through Consultation
When you don't have an Uncle who is a contractor, you can hire our inspectors by the hour to evaluate houses before you open Escrow. This is ideal for home sellers, investors, or buyers who aren't sure which house to buy.
"Good home inspections aren't cheap. The cost can add up when a buyer's first choice turns out to be in need of substantial repair and they have to get a second or third inspection" said Philippe Heller, President of The Real Estate Inspection Co. "Our new Verbal Inspection empowers buyers with the expert eyes of a seasoned home inspector. For a fraction of the price of a full Home Inspection, you get a professional opinion about the house."
Often, the trained eye of a home inspector can quickly identify significant defects that may be overlooked by a buyer distracted by the excitement of buying a house. A worn roof, sloping floors, or an aged heating system could each cost thousands to repair. A buyer can then decide if they want to proceed with a full inspection, or move on to a different house.
Sellers particularly like this service. Many sellers do not want to have a pre-listing inspection because they don't want to have a report. "But they should have a pre-listing inspection" Heller said. "Even the most meticulous homeowner may have deferred maintnenace that they should address. It could mean the difference of thousands of dollars."
Ten years of excellent service has made The Real Estate Inspection Company the largest home inspection company in San Diego. The company has pioneered many improvements in the inspection industry. To learn more, visit www.SDinspect.com
