2022 Year in Review: Flying in Turbulence

As we wrap up 2022, I honestly have never been so bullish and excited about the vision of what we are building here at Inspectify. That being said, 2022 has been a trying year for all of us, something I relate to flying an airplane during turbulence. The year started like most flights, a smooth take-off with clear skies ahead. Then, what seems like out of nowhere, the year became turbulent. Small bumps and jostles started and then quickly escalated to severe drops and swerves. At times we thought we were through it, only to be thrown back into another series. As we ended the year still within turbulence, I take solace not in believing the turbulence is over (sorry, it's not), but rather in what flight attendants assure us on every flight...

What can I do with my home inspection report?

If you’re buying a home right now, you’re entering a real estate market unlike any we’ve seen in recent memory. Coming off a seller’s market, where home sellers had the ability to command almost any price they wanted on their home, we’re now in the middle of a steep demand drop due to high mortgage rates. With fewer people buying homes right now, but just as many people trying to sell as before, most sellers are being forced to make concessions on price.

Do I need a home inspection before a renovation?

Oct 22, 2022 2:44:41 PM / by Inspectify posted in Investors, Homeowners, Agents

Short answer: yes, you definitely need to have your home inspected before doing a renovation. Long answer: you should also have your home inspected while the renovation is in progress and after it is completed. Failing to have your home properly inspected could result in a variety of costly consequences. You might go over budget due to improperly scoping the project from the onset. Your local government can even force you to tear down the renovation if it violates zoning and/or building regulations. These situations can be avoided with a proper home inspection before, during and after major renovations.

Are home inspector reviews accurate?

Sep 12, 2022 2:39:41 PM / by Joshua Jensen posted in Investors, Homeowners

0 Comments

Online reviews can be helpful, but anyone looking for a home inspector should bear in mind that online reviews may not tell the full story. Like many trade professionals, you can find reviews of home inspectors on Google, Angi, Trustpilot and Yelp. And just like in those professions, more people leave a review after a negative experience than after a positive one, leading to a plethora of one-star reviews that don’t five the full picture. Former customers may write glowingly about their positive experience with the inspector, or they might leave paragraphs about unprofessional behavior, lack of skills and other complaints.

Signs your property needs a specialized home inspection

Does my property need a specialized home inspection?

A common misconception buyers sometimes have about general home inspectors is that they can diagnose and suggest repairs for any and every problem in a home. A general home inspection can uncover common deficiencies like drainage problems, roofing issues or poor ventilation. During the inspection, general home inspectors can point to signs of issues like mold, pests or structural instability, but they cannot officially diagnose those conditions. Similarly, they cannot inspect certain features on the property such as pools, septic tanks or wells because those features are not part of the standard general inspection report. For properties with any of the above listed deficiencies or features, an additional, specialized inspection is often recommended.
