Frequently Asked Questions:
What days of the week and times of the day do you schedule inspections?
My primary schedule is Monday through Friday with inspections scheduled at either 9:00 am and/or 12:00 pm. On occasion I will book Saturday appointments, but typically I keep that day reserved for special circumstances.
What is the point of a re-inspection and what is the cost?
Sometimes clients wish to have a re-inspection once all of the repairs are made, in particular for roof and crawlspace issues that are not readily observable. I recommend in the report that major repairs, such as roof, plumbing, mechanical and electrical be preformed by licensed companies and the buyer should secure paid invoices as evidence that repairs are made. However, for further evaluation of the repairs a re-inspection service is available and typically costs $75 for in-town inspections and $125 for other service areas.
How long does the inspection process take?
Typically the inspection process takes about 2 hours. This time may be longer depending on the size of the home and other factors such as a crawlspace or other systems that require additional time.
Should I attend the inspection and can I follow you through the process?
The client is always welcome to attend the inspection, however it is important to understand that the inspection process requires intense concentration and the inspector works best when free of distractions. At the end of the inspection I will provide a summary with photos of the issues discovered and will answer any questions that you may have.
Do you accept payment at closing?
I do not accept payment at closing as a general rule, but there are circumstances to this rule given the particular situation. When the Buyer is required to pay, I can accept cash, check or credit card at the time of the inspection, or send an electronic invoice to pay if you do not attend. When the Seller is required to pay, I will send them an electronic invoice to pay prior to the release of the report.
Do you offer home warranties?
I do not offer home warranties. I recommend to my clients to research the top rated home warranty companies and make a selection based on those results.
What is your service area?
Typically I stay within the Albuquerque - Rio Rancho metro area with occasional inspections in the East Mountains, Los Lunas and Placitas.
