Buying a home is probably one of the largest investments you will make. The process can be stressful and confusing. A professional inspection will significantly reduce your risk. Armed with the information in the inspection report, you can make decisions with confidence.
1.) Full Physical Home Examination. The home inspection includes grounds, drainage, foundation, crawl space, basement, roof and attic, insulation and ventilation, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, appliances and structure type.
2.) Protection and Safety. 5 Star can detect safety concerns such as the lack of smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Loose handrails and steps. Unsafe walkways and decks
3.) Sub-Standard Additions and or Installations. Homeowner or contractor may not have obtained required building permits or not used standard building codes and practices.
4.) Negotiating Tool. A home inspection report presents an opportunity to ask for repairs and/or request a price reduction from the seller.
5.) Forecast Future Repairs. 5 Star can approximate the installation age of major systems in the home such as the HVAC, Water Heater and Plumbing. Also diagnose the current condition of the total exterior and interior of a home.

3.) Flexibility. Sellers gain more time to make repairs and compare bids on work to be done and can truly provide full disclosure to their potential buyers.
