Pre-listing Inspection

If you are a home seller, you should take the precautionary step of a pre-listing inspection. Having an inspection prior to placing your home on the market allows you to identify any potential problems that could undo a sale later at the negotiation table.

House for Sale
New House with Grey Siding

11-Month Building Inspection

Even if a house is built brand new, there still may be things wrong with it that will be covered by the builder’s warranty over the first year! If your house is new, it might look just fine, but there is much more to a house than meets the eye. Don’t take an unnecessary risk — call Windward Certified Home Inspections to perform an informed inspection on your new home before your warranty expires.

New Construction Phase Inspection

Unlike an 11-month inspection, which is taken within the year after a home is constructed, this is a special inspection that takes place during the construction process of a home. Your new home is inspected at 3 critical points: Pre-Pour Inspection (before foundation is poured), Framing Inspection (before drywall and insulation is installed), and a Final Inspection before your walk-through with the builder.

House Under Construction
Commercial Office Building

Commercial Inspections

Get a good look at your commercial property inside and out with an in-depth commercial inspection. These inspections are done specifically for commercial properties and help identify potential problem areas that can hurt your investment down the road. Protect yourself and your property by being proactive.

Home Buying Mistakes to Avoid

1. Turning down an opportunity because you think you can’t afford it

Plenty of people who are sitting down and enjoying their homes right now who thought they’d never be able to afford it. The truth is, you can’t afford to not buy!

Purchasing a home is a very strategic financial decision. The equity in a home coupled with tax allowances that favor home ownership are what give homeowners financial security by the time they retire.

As you make more mortgage payments every month, the amount you owe on the house decreases while its value increases. This is known as “equity buildup” and is what makes buying a home such a smart decision.

2. Failing to hire a buyer’s agent

A buyer’s agent is someone who will help you find the best home, the best lender, and the best home inspector. Buying a property by yourself is complicated and stressful. It is one of the biggest financial decisions you will make in your life. It is a buyer’s agent’s duty to help you find a home and to keep you from making costly mistakes. The chosen inspector should be certified with InterNACHI, because these inspectors are the best-trained in the entire world.

3. Selling out for a cheap inspection

Buying a home is one of the most expensive investments you are going to make. Why would you sell yourself short by purchasing a cheap inspection? The additional cost of hiring the best inspector that you can find is minimal compared to how much you will be paying for a house.

Remember: InterNACHI-certified inspectors are the best inspectors around!

So don’t take a break before the finish line — financially, go all the way and make your investment worth every penny!
