Buying a Home In The Rapid City Area? Let Us Inspect This Important Investment!

hb-buyersBuying a home in South Dakota can be stressful at times, and nothing could be worse than suddenly finding out that there are major defects with the property you just purchased. Our thorough and professional home inspections help ensure your familiarity with the home and the condition of its major systems; our findings are then presented to you in our comprehensive Report. Once armed with this knowledge, it will help you feel more secure about your purchasing decision.

A complete general home inspection helps:

  • Provide assurance that you’ve made a sound buying decision.
  • Reveal any necessary repairs and investments before you buy.
  • Give you valuable details about each aspect of your new home.
  • Help reduce the risk of unwanted “surprises” after you move in.
  • Alleviate buyer’s remorse.

Have Questions? These Will Help:

Why should I have a professional home inspection?

A home purchase is one of the biggest investments you will ever make, and an inspection from American West Inspections helps provide the information you need to feel confident about it. After receiving our thorough, objective report detailing the home’s condition, you’ll be able to make a smart, informed decision.

How long does an inspection take?

The process usually takes two to three hours depending on size, age and condition of the home and any additional services provided.

Do I need to be present during the inspection?

Yes. The goal of a home inspection is not just to inspect the property, but also to educate the homeowner or potential buyer about the property’s condition. This is better achieved if you are present at the time of the inspection.

How will the inspection help me determine the condition of the home?

During the course of the inspection, the inspector will explain the condition of the property. You will also be provided with the Report to help you make an informed purchasing decision.

What is included in The Report?

The Report is an easy-to-reference document detailing the condition of the home’s major areas (such as heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roofing, etc.).

Being Present During Inspections

It is especially important to be present during our inspection. By accompanying the inspector, you will have the opportunity to:

-See the condition of key components throughout the house and property firsthand, giving you a better understanding of your home and of the resulting inspection report.
-Ease any concerns about findings which may seem distressing on paper but are in fact superficial. For example, the inspector might explain that inexpensive lubricant can quiet an alarming appliance noise or that an unsightly column needs only a coat of paint.
-Have all of your questions and concerns addressed immediately as they arise.

Prior to the inspection, please prepare a list of any questions or concerns you may have about the property, and communicate those issues to Keith or Liz in advance to ensure they will be properly addressed (and that any necessary special arrangements can be made). Please bring your list to the inspection as well.
