Why Insurance Inspection Services Come in before Listing
No matter how good the market looks for sellers, avoiding bumps in the road is essential.
No matter how good the market looks for sellers, avoiding bumps in the road is essential. If you recognize a problem now, you either need to identify it to buyers or fix it. Depending on the type of loan and other factors, you may have to fix it to qualify. Even for careful homeowners, many problems can unexpectedly pop up. You may not notice problems with your roof until the worst happens. Your HVAC system might seem fine until it breaks down.
This is where insurance inspection services come in. We know how frustrating it can be to find out you have to repair something late in the process. This is why Don Meyler Inspections offers pre-listing inspections. We can schedule a time that works for you to look over the property. This allows us to get an idea of what we’re working with. It also allows you to catch potential hazards. As a windstorm-prone state, disaster can strike at any time. You want your home to be ready for both major windstorms and the everyday hazards of an aging home.
Catch the Most Common Problems with Home Insurance Inspections
Some of the most common problems are also the easiest to miss without insurance inspections. Newer homes are likely to be built with newer parts that meet set building codes. Occasionally, even with brand new construction, the builders cut corners and didn’t do their part. Insurance inspectors can catch some of these problems quickly.
In older homes, things like the roofing and plumbing systems age with the rest of the house. Plumbing starts leaking or wearing down until one day we have a flood on our hands. Don Meyler Inspections takes a close look at these types of things. Then we can make recommendations to make systems last longer. We can also tell you when different parts of your home have expired. So you’ll know when things just need to be redone or replaced. When you’re trying to sell your home, it’s just a matter of when you find out.
If you wait til later, it could jeopardize your home sale depending on the severity. If you catch it before you list, potential buyers never have to know. Once you find a buyer, you can move through the selling process quickly.
Established in 1999, Don Meyler Inspections has grown to become one of Florida’s insurance inspection leaders.
