Types of Home Inspections in Wedowee AL
Buyer Home Inspection in Wedowee
This is the most common inspection we do.. All buyers should get a home inspection in my opinion. This inspection typically lasts 2 to 4 hrs depending on the size and quality of the home. Our clients are always welcome to attend and many attend at least some portion even if it is just the last 30 minutes or so. However if you are unable to attend rest assured we are committed to giving you a thorough, clear and concise written report.
Seller Home Inspection in Wedowee
This sometimes is called a Pre-listing home inspection. This is an excellent idea for a Seller of a home. This inspection allows the sellers the time to address issues that are found in a more timely manner than after an offer is made and accepted. This time allows the seller more time to get bids which could potentially save money on repairs. It also decreases the likelihood of a deal falling apart after an
inspection, because the issues can be addressed before the buyer has an inspection.

This is an inspection that is not being done often enough. Everyone thinks because the home is new that they are all set. It is always a good idea to have a fresh set of eyes look at a project.
