Home inspections can help you buy or sell your home with confidence. As trained professionals, we have seen it all, and can provide valuable information that will make you an informed consumer. Homeowners can help identify potential problem areas and should take measures to prevent costly repairs. Sellers can understand the conditions a buyer’s inspector indentifies and make the necessary changes to restore the home to a better condition for selling. Our inspection services include:
In old and new homes alike, the best way to be informed about the pros and cons of a property is to have Abbeytown provide you with a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas, no matter the size, that may have been overlooked by the home’s previous owners and to identify which areas require immediate attention.
Whether you are using a realtor or selling a home yourself, it’s always best to have a professional home inspection. We will help you address the seriousness of a problem area, identifying those that must be immediately remediated and those that can wait. The more you know about your home, the better prepared you will be for negotiating with a buyer.
Most builders provide a 1-year warranty for new construction. During this time, the buyer creates a “snag list” of those items the builder needs to repair under the home warranty. Some of these snags will not be identifiable to the untrained eye, and it would be in your best interest to obtain a home inspector’s list of items that need repair. This list is then presented to your builder for repair under your warranty. You will be reassured in knowing a potential problem was addressed before it became a large problem that could be costly.
As a professional home inspector, it is our job to alert you of the potential environmental hazards present in your current or potential house. This is a visual, non-invasive inspection of the property to identify these hazards:
Mold: There are many types of mold, and they require moisture or water to grow. Mold can produce allergens, irritants and in some cases, potentially toxic substances.
Radon: Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found in soils, rock and water throughout the United States. Radon is a threat to health because it collects in homes in very high concentrations.
