NPI is an unbiased, third party working for you. NPI has the experience and expertise to assess hundreds of components of the home, to help you better understand the condition of the property and avoid unwanted surprises.
The number of foreclosed homes continues to rise. NPI realizes that while the price of the home may look attractive, most foreclosed home sales are sold “as is” and do not have a seller’s disclosure document. Any history or problems associated with the home are unknown.
An NPI inspector has the knowledge to:
- Reveal items that went unnoticed upon first glance
- Answer questions you may have regarding the history of the home, such as the age of the home, age of the roof and other past concerns
- Unveil items that require repair that the bank will not fix, allowing you to calculate the maintenance budget in advance
For Home Buyers
Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments you will make. For peace of mind, it’s important to understand everything possible regarding the home you are about to purchase. NPI property inspections are designed to meet strict industry standards and cover all major systems in the home.
A property inspection should be ordered immediately after reaching a written purchase agreement with the seller. Most real estate purchase agreements include a clause making the purchase contingent on a home inspection.
