Financial Peace of Mind for Both Homebuyers and Sellers
Homebuyers spend weeks and months searching for the right home that meets their needs and financial ability. Buyers may also be purchasing a home as an investment property, looking to flip an outdated home into a modern comfort for another family. No matter why one may choose to purchase a home, a certified and educated home inspector is not only mandatory for most bank loans, it will also help you avoid a costly mistake by purchasing a property in need of major unforeseen repairs.
Similarly, homebuyers aren’t the only group that benefits from home inspections. If you are selling your home, pre-sale inspections can allow a current homeowner to prepare their house for sale before it hits the market.
Tip: It is recommended that you attend your home inspection process. This is a valuable and educational opportunity. Never pass up the chance to see your home through the eyes of an expert.
The Value of Surelock Homes Inspection Company
Each inspection performed by Surelock takes an average of two to three hours. A brief verbal summary, including photos, is shared with each client. Within 24 hours, a computer-generated report with a summary, pest report, and photos, is emailed to the prospective buyer and buyer’s real estate agent.
Surelock Homes Inspection Company offers a list of comprehensive services including radon, lead and asbestos testing, and roof inspections. First-time home buyers may be in the dark about these invisible poisons that can potentially contaminate homes. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into a house through cracks and other holes in the foundation. As with most home repairs, the cost of reducing radon can vary widely but can be a costly fix. You may have to seal concrete slab floors, basement foundations, and water drainage systems. Catching it earlier can help reduce the repair costs and potential health hazard.
Rain gutters and septic tanks are also inspected for proper care and maintenance. Additionally, while not all popcorn ceilings contain white asbestos fibers, a home inspection company can safely remove a sample and turn it over to a qualified laboratory to rule out asbestos contamination.
Get a Trusted Second Opinion
The benefit of a home inspector does not stop at the home buying and selling process. A trusted home inspection company can also provide additional, unbiased opinions on recent work completed by a contractor or repair bids and evaluations. If you have a complaint against a tradesperson, then the services of a home inspector may be desired prior to seeking legal action. Many home inspectors provide expert witness testimony that could give considerable benefit if a complaint has to be legally resolved.

“Home inspection for houses we had placed offers on and for pre-sale inspection of the house we are selling – to include the follow-on inspection after we had our roof replaced. Greg Madsen always does a great job for us (we have used him 5 times). In all instances, his inspections have enabled us to make informed decisions related to our purchase considerations and provided invaluable information related to our pending sale. Secondary inspections by the buyers revealed that no new discoveries could be found – the inspections from Greg were right on, and he is extremely thorough….nothing was overlooked. Getting an inspection is an investment in your peace of mind related to the most expensive purchase you’ll ever make – getting the inspection from Surelock Homes Inspection Company provides the most precise and detailed inspection you can get. We highly recommend him.” – Alan F., Auburn
