No, but we do. It is common for sellers to take drastic measures to hide problems, making it difficult for even the best home inspector to detect every issue. That is why we think it is important to go above and beyond other home inspectors and home inspection companies to protect our clients and ensure the home is covered if issues arise after you’ve purchased the home. The best part is, it doesn't cost you anything. If it meets the terms and conditions it is free with the inspection. See the link below for terms and conditions.
If you are purchasing a house, do you want a “deal killer” or a home inspector that gets most of their business from the agent? The home inspection profession is controlled by the real estate industry. The vast majority of home inspectors get their inspection referrals directly from realtors. Its common knowledge that realtors have “preferred home inspectors” list. Realtors have absolutely no incentive to offer, provide, suggest, or recommend a thorough and qualified home inspector. In fact, their incentive is just the opposite. One of the most important qualities when choosing a home inspector to inspect the major investment you are contemplating is independence. If your home inspector is not independent, from agents and their referrals, you will not get the best home inspection. Am I a “deal killer”? YES, and I am PROUD of it. With Assured Home Inspection Service, LLC you are getting an advocate with only YOUR interests in mind.

Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. The warranty will usually expire within the first year after closing. Getting your home warranty inspection at the end of the one year expiration is your final opportunity to identify and inform your builder of any items that need to be repaired or replaced. Following your inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report, complete with photos, that includes information on any defects observed on the date of the inspection. With this information, you can take any necessary steps to hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranties before it expires.
Home sellers in the past did not want a home inspection that would point out defects, especially if the buyer was not likely to get a home inspection. However, this has changed now that most buyers get an inspection. If you plan to put your house on the market, consider getting a professional prelisting home inspection done. If issues show up in the buyer’s inspection report, the buyer will likely ask for a price reduction, a credit, or have you make the repairs yourself. Depending on the severity of the issues and the buyer’s willingness to negotiate, it can sink the original offer amount. Getting your house in the best shape possible will help speed up the sale process. If you proactively make the necessary repairs, there is less likelihood to be stuck in a long negotiation process and less time on the market. It can also be a useful tool in the negotiation process. A potential buyer will have less merit to claim a price reduction for repairs if you’ve made the necessary repairs ahead of time. Hire an inspector that is a member of InterNACHI for your pre-listing inspection, which provides the most trusted and rigorous training for inspectors in the industry.
Some studies suggest that methamphetamine chemicals may cause cancer in humans. And because children have small developing bodies and a tendency to play on the ground and put things in their mouths, they are especially susceptible to adverse health effects from illegal drug toxins. The chemicals used in methamphetamine production are highly toxic. Home-cooking meth spreads toxins to every inch of the room where the meth was cooked and beyond. Nothing escapes contamination — the carpet, walls, furniture, drapes, air ducts, even the air itself becomes toxic. We can test for drug residue from previous illegal drug activity. Toxic chemicals from illicit street drugs can make your family sick. In the United States only 1 in 10 drug labs are ever discovered leaving future buyers at risk. Schedule your testing today with your qualified home inspector and get the peace of mind every homeowner should have when settling in.
