Investment Inspection offers a Final Walk-through Home Inspection service at a Discounted Rate for those who have purchased a previous Standard Inspection from us.
The initial standard Home Inspection is often performed a 1-2 months or sometimes even longer, prior to closing on the mortgage. With that in mind, a TON of things can go wrong within a month or two. Often times, the seller feels as if the deal is done and they don't have to take care of the house anymore, leading to neglect or dismissing issues that arise. They have a feeling of "not my problem" since they will be moving out of the house.
Think of it this way...you get a quote to trade in your car, which you schedule 30 days from now. Within that time period, you're past due on your oil change, the breaks start squealing, and one of your tires is losing air. Most people would take the path of "Why am I going to spend hundreds of dollars on a car I am trading in anyway? Soon, it won't be my problem anymore." The right thing to do of course is to repair the vehicle back to the condition it was in when you got the initial trade in offer, but that seldom happens. That's why the dealership has conditions on the deal so that they have a way to negotiate the trade-in price down, to compensate for the expected repairs.
Same principle applies to a home, but on a much larger scale. Once the Home Inspection is done, many home buyers don't realize that they are not required to have an inspector present at the final walk-through. Typically, the buyer is responsible to do the final walk-through a day or two before the closing. It is 100% reliant on you signing off on it as in satisfactory condition and to proceed with the closing. You are essentially saying that you'll take the house "as is", ultimately leaving you liable for and costly repairs that may have popped up in that 1-2 months since the initial inspection.
On the other hand, if you have your Home Inspector with you for the final walk-through, you're basically having a good and thorough inspection again, right before closing. This inspection is typically abbreviated since the inspector knows the house already and what to look for. This also gives the inspector a chance to check out any of the repairs that were required by the seller according to contract.
All-in-all, it is a SMART idea to have your original Home Inspector present during your final walk-through to protect you and your investment. It not only helps you, it also puts you at the advantage when it comes to negotiating terms and finances. As am example, if the refrigerator was working fine during the initial inspection, but then was found to be broken during the final walk-through, you could potentially negotiate cash at closing from the seller to you, towards the replacement cost of the refrigerator. Investment Inspection will walk along with you during your final walk-through and have your back the entire way. Our inspectors make sure NOTHING is missed and you are not being taken advantage of! You are making a massive 6 figure financial investment, make sure you take the proper steps to protect yourself. You'll be glad you did!
