Pre-Offer Inspection

In today's market, homes are selling for more than asking price with the majority going through a bidding war. Some sellers are favoring buyers who waive inspections, which makes us cringe! A home is a big investment, most likely the biggest investment of your life, and we want all our clients to be informed. At J D M, we are here to assist are clients in any way we can to help them make an informed decision. This service offers you a chance to walk through a home with the inspector, prior to putting in an offer. The inspector will answer any questions/concerns you may have. Having the knowledge of the potential repairs the home may come with, you'll be able to make an informed decision on the offer you'd like to submit or if the property is the right fit for you. This service is first come, first serve based on the inspector's availability. You will not receive a written full home inspection report. This walk-through is for informational purposes only to give you the peace of mind prior to writing your offer. If your offer is accepted and you go under contract, J D M Home Inspections will apply the amount already paid for your pre-offer inspection on that particular property address towards your full home inspection of the same address.


Radon


Radon is tasteless, odorless, colorless gas that goes undetected by our senses. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. today. Testing is the only way to tell if your home has high levels of radon. There are no immediate symptoms, it could take years for problems to surface. Entering the home through the ground or groundwater, radon can be inhaled or ingested, leading to the potential risk of illness, cancer, or death. It is important to get your home tested for radon. Current studies show 1 in every 5 homes have high levels of radon. If the home does have high levels of radon, the house can be vented properly to reduce the levels to an level that is not harmful to you and your family.

Termites/Wood Destroying Insects

Termites and Wood Destroying Insects are hungry bugs that have a large appetite for our homes. They can compromise our home's structural stability and leave us with unwanted damages and costs if the infestation goes unnoticed or untreated. It is recommended to get your home inspected once a year for these pesky creatures.
