#1: Puts safety first
Your new home should be a haven – a place that provides comfort, functionality and safety for the entire family. Why put the wellbeing of you and your loved ones at risk if you can avoid it?
At House Sound Home Inspections Inc, we take your safety very seriously. That’s why our licensed home inspector will thoroughly inspect the home, examining the roof, exterior, structure, electrical, heating, cooling, insulation, plumbing and interior systems and finishes.
If there are any concerns that can jeopardize your safety, we will immediately notify you and provide the evidence supported with photographs in the report.
#2 Maintains integrity – we only work for you
Our primary focus is to provide you, the client, with the facts to make an informed decision about whether to buy the property or not. Whether you proceed with the deal is NOT our concern.
We belong to the Home Inspectors Association of BC (HIABC) and we work to a code of ethics that protects our clients.
Although licensed home inspectors are not required to belong to an association, the HIABC maintains ethical standards amongst its members. An example of this is that members are not permitted to pay real estate companies a fee to be put on their “preferred list” of home inspectors. This would be a clear conflict of interest.
So, when selecting your Licensed Home Inspector, check that they belong to the HIABC.
#3 Alerts you to property issues
Buying a home can be a complicated business and if you don’t know how to spot the warning signs, you may be getting in over your head dealing with potential problems. At House Sound Home Inspections Inc, we have the necessary skills, experience and training to pinpoint issues that can come back to haunt you later. We will not only alert you to property problems, but also recommend how to deal with them.
#4 Encourages sellers to invest in upkeep
Savvy sellers know that many potential buyers are going to have the property inspected – and that’s good news for you. If the homeowners want to get their asking price, they are going to invest in repairs and maintenance. Those that don’t will risk a higher number of deficiencies being identified in the report, leading to possible delays in the transaction and completion of the sale.
#5 Saves you money
Whether it’s an easy fix or a major problem, home repair issues are always a concern for any home buyer. If you don’t catch these major deficiencies before you complete the sale of the home, you could be liable to high remediation costs late on.
Take advantage of our home inspection services as they can help you back out of a sale or renegotiate a deal with expensive deficiencies.
