Investor’s Residential Inspections to fit the needs of every Real Estate Investor

If you are a real estate investor, you want to make sure your investment is worthwhile and that the home meets your specific criteria. Here are ways you can use our inspections to your advantage.

Advantage 1: Investor’s Residential Inspection

Get the information you care about most.

In most cases, home inspections are completed on behalf of buyers who are purchasing a home to live in. Since their investment is not strictly a financial one, their perspective usually involves emotions and feelings in addition to the numbers.

As a real estate investor, you are operating from a purely logical standpoint since you most likely don’t have an emotional connection to the property.

For example, you may not care as much about loose faucets, cabinet damage, or stained carpet since those are all items you are going to replace anyway. On the other hand, you will want to heavily focus on the main components of the home like the Roof, Electrical, Plumbing, HVAC and Foundation.

We offer an Investor’s Residential Inspection to fit the needs of a real estate investor.

Advantage 2: If You Are Flipping Homes

Order a Certified Pre-Listing Inspection.

Give confidence to a buyer.

Help market your home with a clean inspection report.

Save money on the transaction.

If you are purchasing homes and then flipping them for real estate investment purposes, you might have encountered difficulty selling at some point. This difficulty is not usually due to cosmetic issues since the home probably looks great. However, the difficulty comes with hidden damage or major issues that were not addressed.

When a buyer comes to look at your property, they hire a home inspector to ensure the house is in good condition. A home inspector may find items you maybe were or were not aware of.

We’ve inspected numerous investor flips where nothing was done to make sure the structure was in good condition. In one case, a structural engineer was called for an evaluation and quoted $10K-$20K worth of repairs on the foundation alone!

The point here is that because of the home inspector’s findings, you might have to lower the sale price of the home or pay for repairs. This can hurt your profits.

The fix? Our Certified Pre-Listing Inspection.

Mentioned previously was the benefit an Investor’s Inspection before you purchase the home. This way you know what you’re getting into. Now we are talking about using us again after your flip is complete and you are ready to list the home.

After the certified pre-listing inspection on your flipped home, you will receive a detailed report on any issues uncovered.

  • Give your buyers our transferable full package of warranties
  • See your home through the eyes of a critical third-party
  • Price your home realistically
  • Address issues on your terms, which most likely means going back to the subcontractor who should have done it right the first time.
  • Alerts you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home
  • Guarantee the inspection via our full package of warranties to your buyer
  • A Move-In Certified yard sign is provided to attract potential buyers

The important point to make here is that you are able to address items on your own terms rather than being directed by a buyer. Furthermore, once repairs are complete you can use the certified pre-listing report to market the home and give confidence to a new buyer!

In addition to being a licensed home inspector, I am a licensed real estate agent and will provide you a FREE Certified Pre-Listing Inspection if allowed to list your home. I will list your home at a listing fee of 5%. Click the image below to search for investment properties.
