Our state-of-the art report clearly outlines the inspection results and provides pictures and comments on hundreds of items throughout the home. We communicate the significance of each major and minor property concern. One Source carries errors and omissions (E&O) insurance

HOME BUYERS

You have now found your dream home which is so exciting but also a bit scary. Whether you are a first time home buyer or upgrading or downsizing to fit your current family’s current needs, a professional home inspection is a must.

This is one of life’s defining moments. You are very excited because you are already visualizing life in your new home. At this point, you are probably getting anxious because you’re wondering about the condition of the home you are planning to buy.

As a certified inspector, I can assure you there are very few houses that have no issues. You just want to know what the true condition is so you can negotiate a good deal and before you own the problems.

One Source Home Inspection helps you learn about the home you are buying, gives you the confidence to address potential problems and concerns, and delivers peace of mind about your new investment with a report that includes 300 to 400 checkpoints, complete with pictures and comments.

Potential Deal Breakers That Can Threaten the Sale of Your Home

You probably think your home is in tip top shape?  Don’t be so sure!! There are many unexpected pitfalls a certified home inspector can uncover that are enough to make prospective buyers run for the hills. Some issues are actually hidden from view, while others sellers simply miss. People who live in a house for many years often overlook the defects, whether known or unknown.  In some cases, they are not trying to hide them; they just don’t notice them anymore and have become nose blind to the problems.

One Source Home Inspection can help a seller catch these problems before it’s too late BEFORE putting your home on the market.  A pre-inspection can SAVE you thousands of dollars and gives the seller sufficient time to obtain estimates and schedule repairs that are needed. Dealing with problems in the final hours of contract negotiation will end up costing you more in buyer’s credits than if you had repaired things yourself.

The National Association of Realtors also agrees that a home that is listed as “pre-inspected”, it usually provides a marketing advantage to sellers. When a prospective buyer is given a sense of security knowing that major problems have already been addressed and won’t cost them a fortune, the buyer is more confident in their real world offer and lessens the stress for all parties during the contract negotiation process.

MOLD

Some people can tell if mold is present in a house just by smelling it, plus it looks really gross. Mold also has the potential to cause health problems. According to the EPA, mold can cause allergic reactions, trigger asthma attacks, sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin rashes. Certain types of mold are toxic and must be professionally remediated.

ASBESTOS

Asbestos may be in your home since the mineral fiber was used in thousands of building products until the mid-1970’s. Asbestos is dangerous and deadly when those microscopic fibers are inhaled. A qualified inspector will determine if the asbestos is a problem and what the appropriate remediation measures should be.

LEAD

Chances are if your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it might contain lead-based paint. Lead can get into your body by breathing or swallowing lead dust, or by eating soil or paint chips containing lead. A certified lead “abatement” contractor can remove, seal or enclosed lead-based paint with specialized materials.

RADON

Radon is an invisible gas that is extremely toxic and colorless that comes from the natural decay of uranium from soil in the ground. Any radon exposure has some risk of causing lung cancer. A radon test will determine if your home has unsafe levels of radon. If found, a radon mitigation contractor can take care of the problem.

UNSAFE STAIRWELLS

Homeowners can not be aware to unsafe stairwells. It’s important to make sure stairs have safety features in place which can be particularly important for homeowners with young children. There are many items that should be addressed before putting your house on the market. Many of these potential hazards are included in the report of a home inspection.

ATTICS & ROOFS

Improper ventilation, rotten wood, mold buildup, and improper attic insulation are all problems we uncover during an attic inspection. The biggest problems we find during attic inspections include insulation problems or roof leakage. Although water damage may not be present at the time of inspection, we may find signs of past water damage.
