Homebuyers Want to Know The Home Inside And Out #losangeles #homeinspection
More than 95% of all Los Angeles area home buyers choose to get a professional general home inspection upon going into escrow so that they can know exactly what they are buying. Many defects are hidden under the sink, inside major appliances, on the roof and other places that buyers often miss. A licensed home inspection company checks all of these places and more, then provides a detailed report on the defects found and other helpful information on the current state of maintenance for the home.
For Downtown lofts and condos, home inspections are usually smoother than those for the average single family house. Lofts are usually the sturdiest of all residences because they were originally built to more demanding, heavy-duty industrial or commercial specifications. Most single family homes in the Los Angeles area have more defects than condos, and many houses have unpermitted additions and other issues (such as fences that are too high etc) that general home inspectors do not normally catch. Homes on hills such as Mount Washington sometimes need a separate septic system inspection.
According to industry experts, there are at least 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when a home is for sale. There are 11 that everyone should know about if planning to put a home up for sale. A free report is available called “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection.” Request a free copy of this report in your mail by ordering from the toll free 24-hour automated condo information hotline at 1-800-791-4541 ID#1003 or at www.LALoftInspect.com.
Most traditional houses eventually get termite infestations and other pest problems, while most lofts never do. Condo owners need be aware of different HOA Homeowners Association issues and rules. Condo sellers much check with the HOA well before an inspection to ensure that the inspector can gain access to rooftops, air conditioning, heating, plumbing and electrical panels for the unit being inspected. If the seller does not have the electricity and other utilities turned on, then the seller might need to reimburse the buyer for a 2nd inspection. While buyers usually for inspections during escorw, it can be a good investment for the seller to get a home inspection and repairs in advance so that the buyer is more likely to pay top dollar for a home that is in fabulous condition.
