Looking for a new condo or townhome is an exciting venture. You’re looking at all the neighborhoods and exploring all of your options when it comes to floor plans. You might also be considering one complex over the other because of the homeowners’ association (HOA). Although HOAs regulate the construction of condos, it’s still a good idea to get a condo inspection from Valley Building Inspections. Here are several benefits you will enjoy when you hire our professionals.
1. Individual Unit Assessment
Similar to buying a home, a condo inspection is a crucial part of the buying process. Our team is knowledgeable about all the building codes and current standards of living conditions. We’ll walk through your individual unit and note any cracks in exterior walls, signs of water damage, potential roof leaks, and issues with your unit’s HVAC system. Because we focus on just your unit, you can rest assured that we’re not missing any details that could end up costing you major repairs in the future.
2. More Buying Power
As a buyer, you need all of the leverage you can gain. While most of the complex’s common areas are covered by the HOA, there are still repairs and regular maintenance that the homeowner is responsible for. If the previous owner did not care for their unit properly, their neglect will show up in our report. This information then gives you more buying power and leverage when negotiating price. If they refuse to pay for the repairs, then you have everything you need to argue for a lower purchase price to accommodate those needs.
3. Peace of Mind
Along with the details of our inspection of your unit, we can also perform mold testing to help put your worries to rest. Mold in residential buildings that share walls can be devastating, not only to you but to your new neighbors. Before you sign on the dotted line, it’s important for your bank account and your overall health to know whether or not your unit has mold. Mold eradication is critical before you move in and get settled.
