Property Managers Offer 3 Reasons Not to Skip a Home Inspection Before a Purchase , Manhattan, New York

Would mold, improperly installed electrical wiring, or a malfunctioning heating system deter you from buying a property? A home inspection tells you if these and other problems exist in a residence so you can decide wisely. At Arc Property Management Group in New York, NY, the property managers know home inspections reveal hidden conditions and damage you need to be aware of before purchasing any type of real estate.

Consider these three reasons why a home inspection should be an essential item on your to-do list:

  • property managersReveal Safety Issues: A thorough home inspection includes checking for the presence of substances such as mold, radon, and carbon monoxide, which can cause illness or death. The inspection report gives the purchaser leverage to adjust the offer or require removal and repairs. If the contract is written well, you can walk away from the deal without a penalty.
  • Provide System Information: Knowing when certain systems in residential and commercial real estate need replacing is valuable information for purchasers and their property managers. Inspection reports tell buyers the ages and conditions of roofs, foundations, plumbing, electrical, heating, and air conditioning systems. These data give you additional opportunities to negotiate more favorable, money-saving contract terms and budget for replacements more accurately.
  • Expose Shoddy Work: If there is evidence repairs or renovations were performed poorly or without the proper permits or inspections, the home inspector’s report makes note of it. These conditions can increase buyers’ taxes and insurance costs and lower their property values.   

Arc Property Management Group offers skilled property managers who care for the real estate entrusted to them as if they were caring for their own home or business. You can depend on this team of dedicated, knowledgeable, and responsive managers to meet your and your tenants’ needs.
