For a complete picture of a home or property you are considering purchasing, The Real Estate Inspection Company recommends a BuildFax Property History Report. A BuildFax easy-to-read, standardized report provides a “background check” on the property under consideration, including any public permit information. Call (800) 232-5180 or schedule now. We serve San Diego and the surrounding areas.
BuildFax provides you with deep insight into a property, including all details of permitted home improvements and renovations made to the structure. This includes additions, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing updates, roof replacements, renovations, demolitions, and more. In addition to permitted updates, BuildFax Property History Reports can also show spans of time when updates haven’t occurred (often great indicators of aging systems).
This service is $25.
BuildFax has permit information on the majority of permits issued in the U.S. In some areas, coverage is 90% or higher. In other, more rural areas, permit information is still being gathered, and more data comes online every day. It’s important to note that areas where an inspector may do business could have differing levels of coverage. Just because one address cannot be found, don’t stop searching.
BuildFax data is primarily sourced from permit data and collected directly from the source – the building department. This collected data is standardized into a common report format and mined using advanced data analytics to highlight the information that matters to home buyers, while weeding out the cryptic “noise” often found within permit text. The net result is an easy-to-read report that arms inspectors with the life story of a property.
