The inspection was through. I ultimately choose not to buy the property because the foundation was found to be compromised. It would have cost me 80000 to fix it. It's roof was on it's last leg, no egress windows for the bedrooms, not the correct outlets in the kitchen, and the list continued. The property which I really loved would have been a money pit. I had to back out.
I love how they are very thorough about the inspection. As they inspecting the house they are letting us know what they are finding and what looks good and what needs to be fix. I would definitely recommend HomeTeam Inspection for anyone who’s interested of inspecting their new home.
This is the first time I was able to follow a home inspector during the inspection. During the inspection the inspector noted some concerns on the hot water heater but it was not included in the report. I find this just a little interesting. By profession, I am a plan review engineer and follow industry codes for the design and installation of public water and wastewater collection & treatment systems.
A final decision to issue a final operation approval is in a large part on the results of the inspections conducted during the construction and installation of the systems by certified inspectors and professional engineers.
Would I recommend Home Team Inspection Service, yes I will. But since this is the first time using Home Team Inspection Service, I really do not not feel that scoring any higher than a 9 would be possible.
Bob Percey was my inspector and I can't recomend him highly enough! He was incredibly thorough, going over every inch of the condo I'm tryign to buy. He pointed out things I never would have noticed. He also explained that some things I was worried about were actually not a big deal at all, which made me less anxious about the purchase. He took time to explain everythign he was doing, he gave me tips on things like installing new heater filters if I get the place, and he was very patient with all my questions. Bob was 10 minutes early and had the report done that night! I'm hoping to buy a 2nd place in a year and I will definitely use HomeTeam.
