Denver Real Estate Inspection, What Should I Have Done?

Denver Real Estate Inspection, what should I have done?

This is another question we get from every one of the clients we help. The short answer is, you should inspect for everything that is a concern to you. Now that is a pretty vague answer so I’ll expand.

There are plenty of inspections that can be conducted for a home you are working to purchase. Here is a list of some of the inspections offered in Colorado. This is not a complete list, it’s simply a list of the most common.

  • General Home Inspection
  • Sewer Line
  • Radon
  • Structural
  • Termite
  • Asbesto
  • Methamphetamine
  • Mold
  • Waste Pump
  • Soil Condition
  • Lead Based Paint

We typically recommend that a buyer, at the bare minimum, conduct a general inspection, sewer line inspection and radon inspection.

The general inspection is conducted by are third party selected by the buyer. Most real estate brokers have a list of referrals for inspectors so don’t worry if you don’t have an inspector in mind.

The general inspection typically last between 3 and 5 hours, depending on the size and age of the home. During the general inspection everything that can be visually accessed is inspected. The inspector will then generate a detailed report explaining the items inspection and the repairs needed.

This report gives you the actual condition of the home so that you can determine if the home is worth buying.
