5 Point Pre-Offer Home Inspection

Home Buyers today are finding it difficult to get their offer accepted in the current real estate market, especially when it includes a condition of a home inspection. In this scenario where a full home inspection isn’t possible, a 5-point inspection may be the next best option.

A home may be the most expensive purchase our clients will ever make, and having a home inspection performed is helpful to access and identify conditions or defects present in our clients potential home that may effect the offer price.

(Note: 5 Point inspections are not intended for current home owners or a situation where a full home inspection condition is permitted, but only to be used as a pre-offer solution where otherwise an inspection is not possible.)

Why get a 5-Point Inspection?

Repairs are expensive repairs when they go undetected defects may present a hazardous situation over time and or require immediate attention. Although a 5 point inspection does not cover all aspects or defects in the home, it does provide valuable knowledge when offering on a potential property.

What is a 5-point inspection?

A 5-point is NOT to be considered a full home inspection but focuses on the 5 main components of the building: foundation (moisture), roof, electrical panel, plumbing, and HVAC (heating & cooling systems). These are some of the most important items to know about before making a decision to purchase / offer on a home.

How long does a 5-Point Inspection take?

5 point inspections are approximately an 1 hour long and clients receive their report related to these 5 components same day (if possible) or within 24 hours of the completed inspection .

It is always recommend to have a full home inspection completed for any home purchase or sale. However given the current climate in this housing market, we understand it is not always possible and the need for alternative solutions to make the most informed decision.

The best practice when offering on the purchase of a property is to be proactive & Know Your Home!
