Buying or selling a home is often the largest transaction a person has during their lifetime. It is both significant as it means a change in life, and stressful while you are going through it. Home sales are hot in Colorado Springs and the surrounding area, and knowing what you are buying is more important than ever in such a competitive market. You need to make sure that the eagerness to be able to actually win a bid does not overshadow a major issue with a property that can cost you dearly in the future. Getting a thorough home inspection by a certified inspector is money in the bank and peace of mind to make sure that new castle really is worth what they are asking, and can help determine what you are willing to pay.

Most lenders require a certified home inspection when you are applying for financing on a property. They do this to assure that the money they are lending is backed by collateral – the home and property – worth the amount they are lending. Homeowners that get into trouble after buying a house often do so when faced with large, unexpected repair bills due to a bad roof, mold infestation, water damage that was undetected, or other serious concerns. Major repairs if left unaddressed often lead to even larger problems, making the financial burden even worse.

What All Should Colorado Springs Home Inspectors Report?

Good Colorado Springs home inspections will take a look at all major components and structural elements of the property, as well as appliances that are continuous to the parcel. Plumbing, electrical, and water systems are gone through thoroughly, looking for leaks, valve located, areas that appear aged or damaged, or where there may be sewer or irrigation line issues. The HVAC system should be inspected, air temperatures checked, and to make certain blower fans and motors are all operating well. Appliances like water heaters, humidifiers, and whole house air purification should be inspected for function and condition. The walls, flooring, attic and insulation, roof, exterior cladding or covering, crawl spaces, fireplace and foundation are all inspected, with video documentation and a written report of findings. If ordered, radon testing, mold inspection, water quality tests, and testing for asbestos may also be warranted. All structural elements of the property that can be checked will be checked. This insures you that the home is sound, and you are not facing substantial expense in repairs you were not expecting when you make an offer on a home. It also let’s sellers know what needs repaired before listing a home so they can get top dollar, or potentially expect to have to negotiate when an offer is made on the property.
