10 Important Questions To Ask Your Home Inspector
1. What does your inspection cover?

 

The inspector should ensure that their inspection and inspection report will meet all applicable requirements in your state if applicable and will comply with a well-recognized standard of practice and code of ethics. You should be able to request and see a copy of these items ahead of time and ask any questions you may have. If there are any areas you w ant to make sure are inspected, be sure to identify them upfront.

2. How long have you been practicing in the home inspection profession and  how many inspections have you completed?

The inspector should be able to provide his or her history in the profession and perhaps even a few names as referrals. New er inspectors can be very qualified, and many work with a partner or have access to more experienced inspectors to assist them in the inspection.

3. Are you specifically experienced in residential inspection?

Related experience in construction or engineering is helpful, but is no substitute for training and experience in the unique discipline of home inspection. If the inspection is for a commercial property, then this should be asked about as w ell.

4. Do you offer to do repairs or improvements based on the inspection?

Some inspector associations and state regulations allow the inspector to perform repair w ork on problems uncovered in the inspection. Other associations and regulations strictly forbid this as a conflict of interest.

5. How long will the inspection take?

The average on-site inspection time for a single inspector is two to three hours for a typical single- family house; anything significantly less may not be enough time to perform a thorough inspection. Additional inspectors may be brought in for very large properties and buildings.

6. How much will it cost?

Costs vary dramatically, depending on the region, size and age of the house, scope of services and other factors. A typical range might be $300-$500, but consider the value of the home inspection in terms of the investment being made. Cost does not necessarily reflect quality. HUD Does not regulate home inspection fees.


 

7. What type of inspection report do you provide and how long will  it take to receive the report?

Ask to see samples and determine whether or not you can understand the inspector's reporting style and if the time parameters fulfill your needs. Most inspectors provide their full report within 24 hours of the inspection.

8. Will I be able to attend the inspection?

This is a valuable educational opportunity, and an inspector's refusal to allow this should raise a red flag. Never pass up this opportunity to see your prospective home through the eyes of an expert.

9. Do you maintain membership in a professional home inspector association?

There are many state and national associations for home inspectors. Request to see their membership ID, and perform whatever due diligence you deem appropriate.

10. Do you participate in continuing education programs to keep your expertise up to date?

One can never know it all, and the inspector's commitment to continuing education is a good measure of his or her professionalism and service to the consumer. This is especially important in cases w here the home is much older or includes unique elements requiring additional or updated training.

Healthier Homes

7 Principles to Make Homes Healthier for Families

Which would you choose: to live in a home you could afford, or one that is healthy for your family? Sadly, too many families in America are forced with that decision every day.

HUD believes our communities should make homes available to families that are affordable and healthy. "Healthy Homes" is a century-old concept that promotes safe, decent, and sanitary housing as a means for preventing disease and injury. There is a lot of emerging scientific evidence linking health outcomes such as asthma, lead poisoning, and unintentional injuries to sub standard housing. And, there are more than 6 million sub standard housing units nationwide. Help Yourself to a Healthy Home provides valuable information to assist in making your home healthier for you and your family.

But it's not just older homes that contain hazards. Even newer expensive homes may have hazards lurking within. Creating healthier housing promotes the healthy growth and development of children and has the potential to save billions in health care costs. Everyone needs a healthy home and some of the most serious health problem s for children start in their home. There are special reasons to think about children:

Children's bodies are still growing.

For their size, children eat more food, drink more water and breathe more air than adults. Children play and crawl on the ground and put their fingers into their mouths.

Children depend on adults to mak e their homes safe.

So what can you do?

Fortunately there are some really simple ways to help make your home a healthier place for you and your family. By following the Seven Healthy Homes Principles below, you can help make your home a healthier place to live in.

Follow the Seven Healthy Homes Principles

1. Keep your home Dry.

Damp houses provide a nurturing environment for termites, roaches, rodents, and molds, all of which are associated with asthma.

2. Keep your home Clean.

Clean homes help reduce pest infestations and exposure to contaminants.

3. Keep your home Pest-Free.

Recent studies show a causal relationship between exposure to mice and *** roaches and asthma episodes in children; yet inappropriate treatment for pest infestations can exacerbate health problem s, since pesticide residues in homes pose risks for neurological dam age and cancer.

4. Keep your home Safe.

The majority of injuries among children occur in the home. Falls are the most frequent cause of residential injuries to children, followed by injuries from objects in the home, burns, and poisonings.

5. Keep your home Contaminant-Free.

Chemical exposures include lead, radon, pesticides, volatile organic com pounds, and environmental tobacco smoke. Exposures to asbestos particles, radon gas, carbon monoxide, and second-hand tobacco smoke are far higher indoors than outside.

6. Keep your home Ventilated.

Studies show that increasing the fresh air supply in a home improves respiratory health.

7. Keep your home Maintained.

Poorly-maintained homes are at risk for moisture and pest problems. Deteriorated lead-based paint in older housing is the primary cause of lead poisoning, which affects some 240,000 U.S. children.

Federal Housing Tax Credit Explained

Had to share this video with you ....it helps explain the housing Tax Credit of 2008.

 

Here is the website for the Tax Credit or the FAQ's ( a great place for answers)

Real Estate Outlook

   With interest rates still below 5%, the market appears to be seeing a slight improvement. :-) Spring is showing signs that the buyers are out there looking and buying!

    Many are uncomfortable saying that the bottom has been reached but in today's Realty Times Kenneth R. Harney has given us some food for thought on the subject:

 

"Mortgage applications for purchases of resale and new homes were up again -- eight percent for applications using conventional loans, and a remarkable 17 percent gain in applications to buy houses using low-downpayment FHA mortgages."

"Even Business Week, which has been particularly harsh on housing in recent years, ran a cover story about the turnaround getting underway -- focusing on hard-hit areas of Florida, California and Las Vegas, where sales have been rising fast and unsold inventory taking a plunge."

 

      This may be the right time to consider putting your home on the market....have you considered it? Click here to find the value of your home now. Or Twitter me here to talk about it.

 

        I feel like we are on our way back economically...it has been  a rough road. We have all known someone who has been affected and still might be as we move forward. If you know someone who is close to losing their home, please have them call me.There are ways to hold onto your home...you just need to ask!

AKRON GETS GROWING

From today's Beacon Journal:

 

"Vacant lots around Akron are being turned into community gardens under a new program designed to encourage people to grow their own food.

The program, Akron Grows, is a partnership involving the city, the Akron Cooperative (formerly the Cooperative Market) and the Ohio State University Extension. That partnership plans to convert eight city-owned lots into 100 to 150 gardening plots, which will be made available to gardeners chosen by application."

 

  What a great use of vacant lots around Akron! Buying local and going Green!
