Why Reports Matter
A great report obviously identifies defects for you. These can be used to negotiate repairs or cash back at closing. Even if the house is as is, you may find that the cost of repairs is more than you expected.
At The Real Estate Inspection Company, our reports go a little further. In addition to reporting on defects, we document many functioning items in a house. This is extremely important if you make a claim under your home warranty. The home warranty companies often try to deny claims stating that they were pre-existing. Our reports can help you verify that items were functional, thus making them eligible for warranty repairs.
*You will also receive an insurance information sheet which provides you with all the information that insurance agents often need to provide a quote. It’s all summarized for you in the back of the report.
Unlike the vast majority of home inspection companies, we have an actual education center at our headquarters in Ramona, CA. We bring in local experts to regularly teach our home inspectors. Most other inspectors simply take online courses, which are often outdated and usually not specific to the Southern California Region.
Each region of the U.S. has different building codes and techniques. Houses in the Southeast are built to withstand hurricanes. Houses in the North are built to withstand cold and frost. In Southern California, we are concerned with seismic stability, specific pool safety items, solar systems, and so on. Ask yourself where other home inspectors are obtaining their training and if it is specific to our climate. There’s nothing like an actual classroom with a local professional!
