Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or buying a new home because you need more space, a house inspection is essential before you sign on the dotted line. Without a home inspection in Concord, NC, you’re at the mercy of the sellers, who may not have had one done at all. Hiring someone to perform your own inspection could mean the difference between unexpected and expensive repairs on your own dime and the opportunity to negotiate. Negotiation could lead to cheaper repairs, fully covered repairs, or a lower home price in exchange for handling the issues on your own. Even if nobody has lived in the home before, an inspection can alert you to potential future problems.
If you are selling your home, allow a professional home inspector to perform a pre-listing walkthrough. A pre-listing inspection helps to gain the interest of more buyers and smoothes the transaction process when you do sell the home. Knowing the home has no serious issues also means you can list it with a higher asking price. Additionally, if there are issues, you’ll be prepared and have time to decide whether to fix them yourself or offer the home at a lower asking price while being forthcoming about repairs the new owners may need to cover. A pre-listing inspection covers everything it does for new homeowners and takes only about 2-3 hours to complete.
EDM Home Inspections also performs radon testing. A radioactive gas that is known to cause cancer, radon occurs when uranium in your yard’s soil follows its natural decay process. Unfortunately, sometimes that process includes moving through the ground or air and making it into your home through tiny cracks or holes in its foundation. Once inside, it becomes trapped, and because it has no taste or odor, testing is essential.
We offer both short- and long-term radon tests. A short-term test takes up to 90 days and provides continuous monitoring. This is best if you suspect radon and need quick results. Long-term tests provide a look at the yearly average of radon in your home to determine if you may need to take action in the future.
