When should a home inspection be performed?

When Selling Your Home

Having your home inspected before you list it will show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith and streamline the sale process. Gitman Consulting will identify defects or problems with your home, so you can address them before they are discovered by prospective buyers. 

When Buying a Home

Having your home inspected before you list it will show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith and streamline the sale process. Gitman Consulting will identify defects or problems with the home you are buying, so they can be addressed before your transaction is completed.

After Repairs or New Construction

Having your home inspected after repairs, or new construction has been completed, can identify whether the repair or new construction was completed properly. Gitman Consulting can identify if the repairs, or new construction, were completed pursuant to plan and if there are other defects or problems. Identifying issues immediately after repairs or new construction can save you enormous amounts of money. If identified early, issues can often be corrected by the contractor, but without third-party identification, these issues are unlikely to be identified. By using Gitman Consulting for your inspection, you will benefit from the knowledge of a Professional Engineer, who can understand your contractor's construction plans and what should have been constructed. Fixing issues early will avoid costly consequences in the future.
