What To Expect During Home Inspections
Put simply, an inspection is a visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home.
An RC Fields Home Inspection follows the ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) Standards of Practice & closely adheres to their Code of Ethics to provide you with the best inspection experience possible.
Our standard inspection will cover the condition of the home’s heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), plumbing and electrical systems, exterior wall coverings, deck/porch structures, lot grading and roofing materials, attic and visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors, foundation, basement and structural components.
Buying A Home
- A friendly, experienced and educated inspector who will help guide you through and understand your new home.
- An informational one-on-one walk through of the property with your inspector to see firsthand the condition of the property as seen through the inspectors eyes.
- A comprehensive written report full of pictures, diagrams, explanations of how things function and experienced advice for the DIY’er and/or approximate costs for professional services needed for repairs.
- A summary report for easy reference.
- A lifetime HomeBinder subscription to track work done to the home, contractors used or even paint colors by room. Set to provide regular Recall Checks on appliances and mechanicals or even send yourself a reminder to change your HVAC filter.
- A Reference Library and other resources to help you better understand the home and how it works.
- Free home maintenance consultation for as long as you own the home.
- And the peace of mind knowing that you have had the best inspection experience available.
Selling A Home
A Pre-Listing Inspection provides you with the same comprehensive information on the current condition of the home as a buyers inspection would, but may also add additional value and help increase your homes marketability.
- By identifying potential deficiencies ahead of time, you have the option to make repairs prior to listing or adjust the sales price to reflect said conditions.
- If all parties are aware of the current condition of the property, there is little need for renegotiations later.
- Comprehensive/Illustrated reports to display during showings (it’s recommended to also show a list of repairs made).
- Helps build confidence in the overall current condition of the property.
- Pre-Listing program available which may help both parties save on the inspection fees and receive all the same benefits.
