A home inspection is a visual process where all the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Accessible electrical panels are removed and inspected. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The Inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets, all the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion, a report will be distributed to you.
Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer’s shock at the “functional condition” of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner’s knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can’t make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often produce a higher net sales price for the owner.
Also, with a pre-listing inspection, we place a sign in your yard to indicate your home has had a Certified Pre-Listing Inspection by Inspection Gator. Buyers like this, as it reassures them that issues have already been identified. In a competitive market, it could be the one item that encourages them to call for a viewing your home.
Investor property inspections are performed prior to the purchase as well as periodically during ownership with special emphasis being placed on possible safety and liability issues along with parking lot and lighting concerns. Investment property inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant’s departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.
Commercial property inspections are performed prior to the close of sale, helping buyers better understand the condition of the property. We identify defects, check all major components and building structural elements similar to a home inspection. Additionally, other areas inspected are: parking lot conditions and spaces, handicap spaces, outdoor lighting concerns, drainage, smoke and fire protection is installed. This information can help an investor plan for repairs or negotiate repairs or price adjustments. Identifying potential costly items early is the key to profitable ownership.
Here are a few examples of the building types we have inspected:

Systems will be tested for proper operation and tested for leaks or breakouts using concentrated dye. Lateral line location and septic tank location will be identified when possible.
Equipment will be tested for proper operation including pressure and volume measurement. A water sample is collected and tested for Total Coliform and E-Coli by a local lab.
Systems will be tested for proper operations, pumps and filters checked for leaks, condition of pool liner, along with associated components such as concrete aprons, ladders, stairs, diving boards, and lighting, etc.
Systems will be run using normal operating controls and tested for proper operation with emphasis on broken heads and associated piping along with backflow protection.
New construction (punch-list) inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder’s Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder’s policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to you.
