How many times have you looked at a Multi-Family or Commercial property and thought that the property was in good shape? But is it really? Or that a property looks really run down making you wonder what other problems are present that could come back to bite you later. Odds are, there very well may be things that you don’t know about.
There is a way to know what those things are: a good, thorough, professional multi-family property inspection done that categorizes and lists the true condition of the property along with solutions to those problems. Then you will know what the hidden problems are and what can or should be done about them.
A trained professional inspector, like Jack Randall with Arizona Home Inspections, LLC looks at the entire multi-family property while paying particular attention to: Plumbing, Electrical, Heating and AC, the Structure and Roofing. The Home Inspection should also cover immediate drainage issues. The inspector should also look for material defects and safety issues. It’s also a good idea from a buyer’s perspective to ask the inspector to estimate the expected life of the systems per industry standards. Arizona Home Inspections, LLC provides a 3D Digital Report to the customer, usually onsite, so that the explanation is crystal clear.
Most inspections are purchased by the buyer at the point the building is being sold. But what about the owner/seller of the property?
Peace of mind is hard to put a value on. If the seller has an inspection done he/she then knows what is going on with his/her property without any sugar-coating or biased views. More importantly, he/she now knows what a buyer is going to find out about the building. This gives the seller time to go over the options with his/her Real Estate Agent to find out what solutions there are or the best way to proceed; give a credit toward the repair or get the work done now.
During this challenging economic time we are finding that the deals that fall apart do so because of the unknowns. Anything from the bank changing its policy at the last minute to underground problems with the sewer lines or old HVAC equipment, etc. The purpose of a real estate inspection is to eliminate some of those unknowns. It’s cheap insurance for both the buyer and the seller.
The point here being that if you have the information you need, you can make informed decisions that can save a lot of money. By doing a good, thorough general visual inspection, the seller can increase the value of the site by taking care of problems as well as having the peace of mind of knowing the true condition of the building. In addition, both you and the buyer will know what costs you can expect over the next five years, other than routine maintenance. For the cost of an inspection you can acquire all of this information.
