This, I promise to you...
Buying a home is typically the biggest investment you will ever make. With that in mind, here are four vital reasons why you should schedule a home inspection with Copper Canyon Inspections:
Uncover hidden issues: A home inspection can uncover issues that may not be apparent during a walkthrough or when viewing the home. For example, we may find problems with the electrical wiring, plumbing, or the foundation that could be costly to repair or replace.
Negotiating leverage: The findings of a home inspection can provide negotiating leverage. If issues are uncovered, a request for repairs, credits, or a lower purchase price can be made.
Safety concerns: A home inspection can also uncover health and safety concerns such as mold, lead paint, or radon gas.
Peace of mind: Knowing the condition of the home is crucial to making the best educated offer!
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until our appointment. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing.
Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best!
The Home Inspection Process
We deeply encourage our clients to meet at the conclusion of the inspection. At that time, you and your inspector will “walk and talk” detailing the inspection findings. This will give you the opportunity to ask any questions and address any concerns.
Once we’ve compiled our notes, we will send you and your agent a detailed report within 24 hours annotating what we found.
We provide follow-up support to ensure you are fully equipped for the next steps in your process.
Copper Canyon Inspections is committed to making sure you’re confident and well-informed for one of the biggest decisions of your life.
Frequently Asked Questions
Buying or selling a home can be a stressful experience, but we’re here to ensure you know what to expect during your home inspection.
A home inspection includes checking for any structural issues such as foundation cracks, roof leaks, plumbing issues, electrical wiring, heating/cooling systems, insulation, windows, doors, chimneys, etc. Depending on how big the property is, a home inspection typically takes 2-3 hours.
Ensure all inspection points are free from clutter, including any closets that might lead to a crawlspace or attic, and clearing some space around your home’s perimeter. It’s also important to check the functionality of all built-in appliances, electric, and gas. If you don’t plan to attend the inspection, make sure your inspector has access to the home, and all pets are properly contained or moved.
A home doesn’t pass or fail an inspection. Instead, a home inspection is a thorough audit of your home’s components. In most cases, there will be concerns marked on your home inspection report, but these are strictly informative.
While you can legally skip a home inspection in many cases, doing so could mean you may end up buying a home that has major issues that need to be fixed.
While a home inspector may recommend some minor repairs, they are not qualified to make major repairs. He or she can provide information about what needs to be repaired — and it might be helpful to know that information — but the decision to actually do the work lies solely with the homeowner. Not only does this you the freedom to choose your contractors, but it also helps prevent a conflict of interest.
A home inspection can affect appraisals for two reasons: 1) The inspector may find something wrong with the property that would lower the value of the home. 2) The inspector may find things that may be in need of repair. If so, the seller has to decide whether they want to fix the items or sell “as-is.” If the buyer wants to purchase the home, he/she must take the repair items into account during negotiation and when making a final decision.
