Why do I need a Home Inspection?
The home-buying process can be long and arduous. You often spend months searching for the right home before you make an offer and once an offer is made and accepted, you must jump through several more hoops before the sale closes. An important part of the process is the home inspection where a professional makes sure everything in the house is functioning properly and identifies needed repairs. A home inspector will give you an unbiased documentation of the homes condition and educate you on what will probably be the largest purchase you will ever make. A recent survey by the National Association of Realtors found that 14% of sales are never finalized due to the home inspection, the third largest reason.
A home inspection also gives you the power to negotiate, you have a huge amount of leverage with an inspection report. You can ask the seller to fix the problems in the report, renegotiate the asking price or ask the seller to contribute more to the closing costs. You are in the driver’s seat if the inspection report shows major problems with the house.
An inspection report guarantees that you understand the condition of the home when the sale finalizes which can ultimately bring you peace of mind. All in all, you don’t want any major surprises shortly after moving into your new home. Peace of mind can not be overrated! Precision Real Estate & Home Inspections takes peace of mind to another level by offering the industry’s best guarantee, the InterNACHI “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” guarantee.
What is Radon, and why we test for it?
Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. Radon gas is inert, colorless and odorless. Radon is naturally in the atmosphere in trace amounts. Outdoors, radon disperses rapidly and, generally, is not a health issue. Most radon exposure occurs inside homes, schools and workplaces. Radon gas becomes trapped indoors after it enters buildings through cracks and other holes in the foundation.
Breathing radon over time increases your risk of lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Nationally, the EPA estimates that about 21,000 people die each year from radon-related lung cancer. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths.
You can take steps to reduce and control the amount of radon in your home, however testing is the only way to determine radon levels. Have your home tested by a professional, if radon levels are high, contact a certified radon service professional to discuss mitigation options. EPA guidance suggests mitigating if levels are at or above 148 Bq/m3 (4 pCi/L).
