If you are buying or selling a home in Metolius, Oregon, it is important to know the role that a home inspection plays in the real estate transaction. A home inspection provides you with a full and comprehensive report of the main systems and components of your home.

If you are buying a home Metolius, Oregon, you might be tempted to skip the home inspection. Maybe you’ve been searching for a while and your offers keep getting beat out by other buyers. Or maybe you just want a quick closing. But wait, skipping a home inspection is never a good idea.

The home that you are about to purchase may look perfect on the surface. But, without a professional home inspection, it is difficult to get a good sense of the true condition of the home. For instance, if you visit the house on a dry, sunny day — you would probably not know that the house has drainage issues when it rains. A home inspector is trained to identify problems like these.

You can use your home inspection report to negotiate a lower sales price on your home to take care of repairs like these. A home inspection can also be used to give you an “out” should you decide that the home needs too many repairs. It will also help you rest assured knowing ahead of time about any environmental issues in your home that may affect the safety and well-being of you and your family.

Electrical System

We will carefully examine your electrical system for safety issues and make sure all electrical components are up to local code. Some of the things that we look at include the main panel, switches, lights, breakers, and wiring.

This is just a few of the things that a full home inspection covers. There are many other components that we examine, as well. We also offer a full range of ancillary inspection services, including:

  • Radon Testing – Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that causes lung cancer. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that all homebuyers have radon testing conducted. They also recommend that homeowners periodically check radon levels.
  • Mold testing – Because mold significantly affects air quality, and has the potential to cause health issues, we recommend mold testing for all home buyers and for homeowners who suspect a mold problem.
  • Sewer scope inspections – Sewer scope inspections are strongly recommended for all houses more than 20 years old. These inspections are a good idea for all homebuyers because even new homes can have sewer system defects.
