Home Inspection

Today we are going to discuss the costs of Home Inspections and the process… So once your offer is accepted… we now have 7 days to do our inspections… which in 99.9% of the cases is more than enough time..

 

The 2 most common inspections performed here in MA are the “Professional Property Home Inspection” and “Radon Inspection” ...

 

The Professional Property Home Inspection is performed by a licensed Professional Home Inspector and they are looking for issues… looking for red flags… Think of them as like your Family Doctor… they are not a “Specialist” but instead are looking for any red flags… then if identified they have you see a specialist…


So any “Red Flags” that we see… if big Red Flags like AC or Roof Issues or Foundation Issues… we then would want to get the “Specialist” out to inspect further… Home Inspection, depending on size of the home, pool, etc… are usually around $500…

 

Radon Inspection is conducted by the same licensed Home Inspector,   As the second leading cause of lung cancer, the EPA recommends every dwelling be tested. If the reading of gas levels exceeds 4.0 Pico curies per liter of air, the EPA recommends remediation. The Radon testing is approximately $200.


Now at the end of our inspections… we then have the ability to go to the Seller and say “We found these items wrong with the property and we would like these fixed…” there is no guarantee that they will, but it is up for negotiations and I will fight for you to get the items taken care of!
