Home Buyers Inspection
In our residential home inspection, I’ll conduct a thorough visual evaluation of a property’s readily accessible areas. If the roof is too steeply-pitched or otherwise too dangerous to be considered readily accessible, we have an advantage. We use a camera-equipped small Unmanned Aircraft System(sUAS) to take us where a ladder safely can’t—at competitive pricing!
Inspected areas include:
Foundation & Crawl Space
Exterior (siding, doors, windows)
Driveway & Walkway
Deck & Patio
Interior (doors, windows, walls, floors, ceilings)
Air Conditioning System
Attic, Ventilation, & Insulation
Fireplace & Chimney
Wood Destroying Organisms
Optional - above ground and below ground pools
Optional - Solar Panel Evaluation
Future - sUAS drone inspections
A potential seller/client will have the opportunity to hire American League Home Inspection Inc to perform a full home inspection prior to listing your property. The client will have a full detailed report in order to address any potential repairs or upgrades, or you like a condensed version of the report. If you decide to make some repairs or upgrades, I would be happy to provide you a follow up report as well. A pre-listing report may contain any renovations that you may have had done, prior deficiencies in the home that may have been repaired or upgraded, and/or meets current residential building standards. Call us today to discuss what your needs are and schedule an in home consultation.
Property Management Inspection
When Properties Need to be Inspected?
1) Ingoing Property Inspection
An ingoing inspection is done when a new property is put into a company’s management or a new tenant has moved in.
2) Routine Property Inspections
Depending on the agreement the property management company has made with the property owner they will sometimes conduct routine property inspections while tenants are occupying properties. The purpose of these inspections are to see if the property is being properly maintained as well as to keep the homeowner informed as to the condition of their property.
3) Outgoing Property Inspections
When Tenants Move Out, we go to work. We perform a thorough inspection of the property and run a before and after comparison that will let you know damages have occurred during the time the tenant occupied the property.
This is how a management company is able to track which damages tenants are responsible for when their tenants move out.
Solar Panel Evaluation
Should I go Solar with my new home?
There are many reasons why homeowners go solar, but improving the environment and cutting energy costs are the most common. Many people are aware that solar is a great home efficiency upgrade and are eager to reduce their carbon footprint while also improving property value.
Whether your motivations for going solar are economic, environmental, or personal, this sizable list of solar power benefits will have something for everyone. Here are the top ten reasons why solar energy is good for your home and more popular than ever in the United States.
1. Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills
Electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you’ll still save a lot of money.
2. Earn a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren’t an expense – they’re one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
3. Protect against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs.
4. Increase your property value
Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
