New Jersey Infrared Home Inspections - Short Sale and Foreclosure Inspections

Short Sales and Foreclosures..Do I Buy or Pass?
Infrared Thermal Imaging can Help You

Purchasing a short sale or foreclosure in today's market without getting in over your head can be very difficult, lengthy, tiresome and extremely expensive. From seaching for a "good deal" to the closing table, you are involved daily. So how can you make an informed decision whether to buy or pass? Read on...

Step 1: Key Information is Essential

Unlike most real estate transactions, a short sale or foreclosure does not typically have a disclosure which puts you in an extremely vulnerable position. Key information about home's overall condition of the major components and system is not available. You could go way over budget.

Pre-Listing Seller's Inspections by New Jersey Home Inspector Peter Bennett

Every Seller Should Have a Pre-listing Inspection and Here's why

The condition would have been identified by a professional home inspector. The seller could have retained a professional for further evaluation and repairs. The seller can then present a repair document for the buyer's review which would have reduced tension among parties, and streamlined the process.

This Monmouth County home is only three years old. The foundation has horizontal cracks located at the front wall.

Here Are A Few Of The Important Benefits Of Having The Home Inspected BEFORE It Gets Put On The Market:
1. Helps buyers feel immediately more comfortable with the property.
2. Increases the homebuyer's perceived value of the property.
3. Gives the seller the opportunity to eliminate certain defects before the buyer's arrive.
4. Allows the sellers the proper time to make any needed repairs in order to more effectively market the home in the most positive light.
5. Reduces the likelihood that buyers will hire their own inspector.
6. Reduces the likelihood of costly surprises being found by a buyer's inspector after the sellers thought they had a firm offer.
7. Virtually eliminates emotionally and financially draining renegotiations.
8. Increases the likelihood that serious offers will turn into closings.
9. Reduces the buyer's negotiating leverage regarding the existing property conditions.
So let's review the facts: Having the home inspected before the first buyer shows up will allow the home to be sold for more money, reduce the cost of the needed repairs, and minimize the frustration with the entire sales process. So where's the down side to getting a Pre-Listing Inspection?
Still Not Convinced? Do more research online, and invest in yourself with a pre-listing inspection. It will save you time and money. Contact me for a no obligation consulation.

3 Things Buyer's Of New ConstructionNeed To Know

BEFORE TheirBuilder's Warranty Expires!

Over the last several years, I've heard Buyers of New Home Construction in all over New Jersey, repeat the same three reasons over and over again as to why they didn't get a New Home Inspection and a New Home Warranty Inspection, and the truth of the matter is they were mistaken. Here's what they thought:
Reason #1: I Trust My Builder!
The reality today is that most home builders don't even have tools and equipment. The fact is most new home builders are financiers and occasionally job site managers. Who actually builds your new home are the sub-contractors that the builder hires to do the work. So whether your new home is built correctly and complies with the current building code strictly depends on the knowledge and skill of the sub-contractors. And speaking candidly, the quality of the sub-contractors varies greatly which I have personally witnessed, and unfortuately, my clients too!. And some sub-contractors are unlicensed and unregulated, so who's looking over their shoulder?Certainly not the builder, building code official, the bank, and especially you!
Reason #2: The House Is New What Could Be Wrong?
Even though all of the parts of the house you come in contact with each and every day appear fine, there's a lot more to your house than meets the layman's eye.
Here's the real issue; were the mechanical and structural components of the house put together properly? And truthfully, most homeowners don't have the knowledge or skill to judge that aspect of a new home.
So here's what happens in many cases. You go to sell your new home sometime in the future. The buyer hires a home inspector to evaluate the property for them. And low and behold the buyer's home inspector finds lots of things that were done improperly by the sub-contractors and now the buyer wants you to make the necessary repairs. YOU, but your new home warranty is over! So I'll ask you again, why should you pay for someone else's mistakes?

Reason # 3: The Municipal Building Inspector Inspected The Home!
Here is a True Consumer Safeguard that has sadly gone bad!
Because of the housing boom over the last decade, many Municipal Building Inspectors are forced to conduct 40 to 70 inspections daily, therefore they are over-worked, underpaid, unmotivated, and unaccountable. These inspections have been reduced from quality checks to "drive by" glances. Let's face it, many of these officials are over-worked, underpaid and unmotivated. So who is really looking out for you?

So here's the long and short of the matter: You Need An Independent Evaluation Of The Property By a State of New Jersey Licensed & Professional Home Inspector To Protect Your Interests!
So call Peter W. Bennett, owner of A Full House Inspection Co. LLC today and I will personally evaluate your home from the foundation to the roof and all areas in between and produce a list of issues that you can give to your Builder so that he can pay for his own mistakes and you won't get stuck holding the bag for future repairs.

For the past 10 years, thousands of home buyers and sellers have chosen Peter and A Full House Inspection Co. LLC. That many families can't be wrong!
