Have What It Takes to Be a Home Inspector?

about_Home BlackThe businesses of selling homes and inspecting homes share certain qualities. If you’ve ever wondered what it would take to become an inspector, here’s your answer.

This is an excerpt from 21 Things Every Home Inspector Should Know.

You may already have an inkling that the home inspection business might be complicated and require some expertise, and that you probably will need to continue educating yourself if you want to continue to succeed. We’re here to help you get an idea of the minimum you will need to know to get started in the home inspection business, without harming yourself or anyone else.

A hint here: Prior experience in the construction industry is not a requirement for success. Home inspection is evolving rapidly beyond the days when a guy in dirty coveralls would arrive in a pickup truck between stops at construction sites to poke around a house for a while, mumble a few things, and then hand over a scrap of paper with a few notes scribbled on it.

Today’s computer-sophisticated home buyers expect a professional appearance, a professional inspection, and a professional report (and don’t much care whether their inspector is male or female). The key word is professional.

Checking Window Seals

Inspecting  Window Seals

 

Many newer windows have more than one pane of glass. The area between each pane is either airtight or filled with an insulating gas thus creating a temperature barrier.  If the seal around the pane is “broken” it can allow air and/or moisture to enter and reduces the thermal efficiency of the window.  Replacing the seal is a job for a professional window glass contractor; however, a homeowner can perform a quick window seal inspection a few times a year as follow:

  1. Carefully inspect each window visually for the presence of condensation or water spots between the panes.  Windows with broken seals often appear foggy.
  2. On a cold day, touch the outside of each windowpane.  If any of the panes feel warmer than the others, it maybe allowing heat to exit the home through a failing seal.  Look closely for distorted or damaged neoprene (the synthetic material resembling rubber )around the edges of the pane.

As necessary, have a professional home inspector provide a second opinion before buying a replacement pane or window.  Most units will require removal and replacement instead of permitting for an on-site repair.

When It Comes time to RESELL your home don’t forget make it a “CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED HOME”

 

A-Pro’s EXCLUSIVE SELLER’S PROTECTION

 

WE SAFEGUARD SELLERS FOR 120 DAYS WITH OUR UNPRECEDENTED “CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED HOME PROGRAM”

 

Today, home inspections are conducted in the interests of the buyer alone.  But A-Pro has changed all that with our 120-Day Guarantee available to sellers.

 

Now, listed homes that are inspected by our CHI master inspectors carry the status “Certified Pre-Owned HOME,™” a meaningful designation that goes a long way in helping to ease the concerns of a potential buyer.

 

 

WHAT DOES “CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED HOME” MEAN?

 

As a seller, you want to make your home as attractive a value as possible.

Making it an A-Pro “Certified Pre-Owned Home” gives you a distinct selling advantage.

 

That’s because your home will have undergone a complete, 500-point inspection before it goes on the market, which means it’s guaranteed against hidden and undiscovered problems that might otherwise delay (or even kill) the sale transaction. The benefits of and A-Pro Pre-Certified Inspection help create a powerful marketing tool that can be used during the process of selling a house:

 

  • No home inspections needed after the purchase agreement is accepted.
  • No more last minute re-negotiations based on the home inspector’s findings.
  • No more buyers walking away because there may be a problem that had not been previously mentioned.
  • No more parade of inspectors through your home before a multiple-offer situation.
  • Based on the home inspection, the real estate agent and seller can resolve any differences of opinion about the house before it goes on the market.
  • Disclosing any flaws (no home is in perfect condition) up front allows you to reflect those imperfections in the listing price, rather than have to negotiate again later when issues are discovered by a home inspector.
  • It justifies the selling price whether the repairs are made or not.
  • It may also eliminate possible legal disclosure-related problems after the sale.
  • It gives you the option of fixing any conditions identified in the home inspection report or simply reflecting the imperfection it in the purchase price. This removes it from the table as a disadvantageous negotiating point for you.
  • It includes a report that becomes the buyer’s guide to home ownership for years to come.  For example, the report includes all serial and model numbers of major appliances.
  • You home is far more likely to sell faster… and for more money!
