Real Estate Property Inspections. Commonly called “Home Inspections,”
Buyers appreciate us because we help them gain enough information about that home to make an informed decision to buy or not to buy. We’ll look it over top to bottom, up and down, inside-out. We’ll tell you about it in ways you can understand and we’ll give you an on-site report so you can use it to your advantage. Schedule your Home Inspection Seattle today!
Sellers appreciate us because we let them know where the surprises are – the ones they didn’t know about – the ones that might delay or even stop the sale. They can have the items repaired, or price the home more reasonably for QUICK SALE.
We do Phase Inspections for new home construction. Ideally, we do three inspections during the construction of the home. Phase One: We inspect the conditions before the concrete is poured covering up problems. Phase Two: We inspect the framing and stub-in for plumbing, electrical, and mechanical before they put the insulation and drywall in. Phase Three: We inspect the final product before you sign the final papers.
Pool and Spa Inspections
A typical swimming pool needs seven major components:
- A basin
- A motorized pump
- A water filter
- A chemical feeder
- PVC plastic plumbing connecting all of these elements
If a pool is to your liking in a new or existing home purchase, it’s a really good idea to have a Certified Pool Operator check the pool and its equipment before you buy. Owning a pool can be a terrifically enjoyable experience, but it can also be very expensive if routine maintenance has been neglected. So-called “pool services” tend to make it pretty, but often overlook or ignore the more costly repairs and upkeep necessary for proper, economical, and safe operation.
Our Inspectors will look at the pool shell, the deck, and other areas surrounding the pool. We’ll inspect the equipment for safe and proper operation and we’ll make sure the electrical components are up-to-date and safely installed. We’ll tell you about pool safety and child safety features that are recommended. We’re proud to say that the Pool Inspection is one of the premier add-on inspections we provide. AND we charge less than half what some pool inspectors charge.
End-of-Warranty Inspection (Otherwise known as “Builders Warranty”)
The builder should pay for what his crews messed up! Right? Let us do an End-of-Warranty Inspection near the end of the one-year warranty period to provide new homeowners with a list of problems which they can give to the builder and/or warranty company BEFORE THE WARRANTY EXPIRES. In Texas, the builder is responsible to warrant the materials and workmanship for the first year, but many builders have turned this responsibility over to third-party warranty companies. That’s OK for appliances and such, but if there are serious issues in construction, the builder needs to pay to have those fixed. We’ve found some pretty expensive issues. We don’t work for the builder. We work for YOU. Call Or Text (425) 985-3289, to Schedule your Home Inspection Seattle today!
Jim and Merle are tremendously great at their jobs — you would want them to be your inspector whether you’re trying to sell your home or before buying your new one. We used them in our recent sale and subsequent purchase. The value that they provide is beyond expectations. An example of this was when a potential buyer already set up a preinspection on the sale of our home. Upon reading Jim’s inspection report, the potential buyer immediately cancelled their own inspection, saying, in their words, that Jim’s inspection report was very thorough and is more than adequate for them. Not only did it save everybody the time and effort (and stress!) of having multiple inspections, but it also translated in real $$$ savings for all parties involved. No wonder they are the BEST in the greater Seattle area! – Rich Asiodche
