Buying a home can be stressful. Your home inspection report will easy to understand and tell you all you need to know.
The majority of items will be minor repairs and maintenance items. However, you'll also want to know if a larger problem exists.
Don't worry! A home inspection isn't to alarm you. It's to equip you with what you need to have the home you desire.
Identify any potential issues before buyers inspect your house. Getting ahead of repairs, safety, and maintenance will increase your likelihood to close.

Even a house in excellent repair can have small and common issues. These issues can pile up for a nervous buyer and feel overwhelming. A simple to understand list is helpful in getting you ahead.
To some degree, Radon exists in almost all soils. The gas moves up through cracks and holes in your foundation. The only way to check for this odorless gas is a Radon test.
Elevated levels of Radon are the number two cause of lung cancer in the United States. It's recommended that Radon tests occur on the lowest livable floor. Generally the basement.
Average Radon levels are about 1.3 pCi/L. 2-4 pCi/L a fix is recommended. Above 4 pCi/L should be dealt with immediately. Once again, do not panic. Adding a passive Radon system to any home is possible.
