Twenty9Eleven Home Inspection Services was founded in 2017 in Littleton Colorado. We provide a variety of services for homeowners, both buyers and sellers. This variety is what sets us apart from other home inspectors in our area.
Working in the restoration industry for the last 9 years has provided me with a unique experience and knowledge of homes and the different systems throughout the home. With environmental concerns on the rise, 2911 Home Inspectors are trained and qualified to identify possible concerns with water intrusions, indoor air quality, such as mold and other pollutants and asbestos, in addition to a complete array of home inspection services.
Part of the equation for success of 2911 Home Inspection Services is the growing demand for home inspection services. Driving this increase is heightened consumer awareness of the necessity for home inspections in the buying process, an advocacy of home inspections by Realtors® and lenders, and the introduction of mandatory property disclosure laws requiring the seller to fully disclose any problems with the property.
Two Mistakes Every Home Buyer Should Avoid
Mistake #1: Not hiring a buyer's agent to represent you.
Buying property is a complex and stressful task. In fact, it is often the biggest, single investment you will make in your lifetime. At the same time, real estate transactions have become increasingly complicated. New technology, laws, procedures, and competition from other buyers require buyer agents to perform at an ever-increasing level of competence and professionalism. In addition, making the wrong decisions can end up costing you thousands of dollars. It doesn’t have to be this way!
Work with a buyer’s agent who has a keen understanding of the real estate business and the local market. A buyer’s agent has a fiduciary duty to you. That means that he or she is loyal only to you and is obligated to look out for your best interests. A buyer’s agent can help you find the best home, the best lender, and the best home inspector in your area. That inspector should be an InterNACHI-certified home inspector because InterNACHI inspectors are the most qualified and best-trained inspectors in the world.
Trying to buy a home without an agent or a qualified inspector is, well… unthinkable.
Mistake #2: Getting a cheap inspection.
Buying a home is expensive. This is no time to shop for a cheap inspection. The cost of a home inspection is small relative to the value of the home being inspected. The additional cost of hiring a certified inspector is almost insignificant by comparison. As a home buyer, you have recently been crunching the numbers, negotiating offers, adding up closing costs, shopping for mortgages, and trying to get the best deals. Don’t stop now! Don’t let your real estate agent, a “patty-cake” inspector, or anyone else talk you into skimping here.
InterNACHI front-ends its membership requirements. InterNACHI turns down more than half the inspectors who want to join because they can’t fulfill the membership requirements.
InterNACHI-certified inspectors perform the best inspections, by far. InterNACHI-certified inspectors earn their fees many times over. They do more, they deserve more and — yes — they generally charge a little more. Do yourself a favor and pay a little more for the quality inspection you need.
