Certified Home Inspection
A home inspection is a thorough visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. The electronic inspection report will have easy-to-read details on safety concerns, major and minor deficiencies, conditions of major components from the roof to the basement, and more.
Your home inspector will available to answer questions regarding the inspection anytime.
Seller Certified Home Program
Many sales are cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. Having the home inspected prior to placing it on the market is the ideal way to make repairs or disclose the repairs recommended in the Inspection Report. Disclosure upfront and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.
Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. The EPA recommends that all homes be tested for the presence of radon. Almost Home Inspections is a qualified radon testing service, having completed the Radon Measurement Operator Proficiency course. We use measuring devices that are placed in the lowest level of the residence for a period of 48 hours, with the results available at the end of the test. If unsafe levels of radon gas are found, we will notify the seller and buyer immediately and facilitate the necessary services to fix the radon gas problem to ensure a safe home environment. We will then retest the home to ensure safe levels (or no levels) have been achieved).
Baltimore County Rental Inspections
Baltimore County requires an inspection performed by a Maryland Sate Licensed Home Inspector for rental properties, including homes for rent and buildings with several units. The inspector must complete an inspection sheet for each unit you intend to rent.
Property inspections are also performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following a long term tenant's departure. Identifying those repairs early is the key to profitable ownership.
