Home Inspection Louisville, KY
A home cannot fail an inspection unless you fail it based on the information we provide. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their potential solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision. The experts at Commonwealth Home Inspections in Louisville KY. can help you make the right decision.
Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take three to four hours for an average 3 bedroom 2 bath home, then the report writing we do at the office takes an additional 2 hours, this is longer than almost all other inspection companies and we can guarantee we will always find more deficiencies since we do not work with or for real estate agents plus with over 30 years in and around construction and 16 years inspecting homes with over 5000 inspections performed, you can rest assured you are hiring the right company to protect you from buying a money pit.
Ideally, you will accompany your inspector during the home inspection so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report as well as allowing the inspector to point out some of your homes important features such as gas, electrical and water shutoffs and issues unique to your potential new home.
We take our inspection reports seriously, we offer the best home inspection Louisville KY has to offer. Every inspection is a thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we’ve found with any problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them. Our inspections also provide a free telephone consultation after your inspection.
WHY REAL ESTATE AGENTS HATE US!!!
It’s quite simple.. we always write up more on all homes we inspect and we WILL NOT help them sell a home and say things are typical to a home that age or we see that all the time so we can depend on referrals from them. While it may be true we see those things all the time (And yes we will tell you if you ask) someone still has to pay to have those items repaired, just like it’s typical to have a car with 200,000 miles on it need alot of repairs, you don’t want to be paying for what the seller should have already done. (Unless of course the price is right for you and you can do them yourself or pay to have them done)
We hear it all the time from our clients, “my agent was mad because we didn’t use an inspector on their list” or, “they got mad when they learned who you were”. We have even had numerous inspections cancel after the agent talked others into using their inspector misrepresenting our company saying “we damaged things on inspections” or “he’s a deal killer”, “an alarmist”.. we actually had to stop doing inspections for real estate agents and their family members because they would call us for their inspection but never refer us to their clients, which was fine by us.. We save you more because we find more and spend the time needed to be as thorough as needed.
If you want someone who will treat you just like they know you from family then call us! We will do more to save you money purchasing a home than ANY real estate agent could ever even think about saving you!
One last note.. when a real estate agent says “this home inspector is really good” , think about what they are really saying, are they qualified to know if the inspector really is being thorough if they themselves do not also know about all of the workings of a home and what deficiencies exist? I think not..
