Las Vegas Home Inspections
You wouldn't buy a used car without having a good mechanic check it out. Yet that is exactly what many buyers do when purchasing a home in Las Vegas, even though the home is the largest investment they will probably ever make. (Note: new homes should be checked out as well as resale homes!) A thorough home inspection is one of the most important aspects of purchasing Las Vegas real estate.
A good inspector will give you an unbiased opinion of a home's overall condition and identify any structural or mechanical problems. As well as giving an overview of all the systems, they may also make suggestions on how to correct any defects found and give an estimate of the cost. The best home inspectors will also identify deferred maintenance items that don't affect a home's value, but that should be attended to within the first year of homeownership.
Some of the items they will cover include:
- structural problems
- electrical systems
- plumbing systems
- heating and cooling systems
- mechanical systems
- pools and spas
- drainage problems
- cosmetic problems
- deferred maintenance items
Las Vegas Home Inspectors
When choosing a home inspector, it is important to find one that is state certified. There are actually very few that have completed the rigorous testing required to become certified in the State of Nevada. These inspectors provide comprehensive reports, including color photographs, of all the major operating systems and structural components.
The up front cost of having a home inspector is a fraction of the money that it may save you. The charge is relatively nominal, usually between $250 and $350 for average size Las Vegas homes or condos. We recommend the toughest inspectors in the industry to protect our client's interests so that they are fully informed on all the positives and negatives of the homes they are purchasing.
