FULL HOME INSPECTION
A buyer inspection is usually done after a buyer has made an offer on the home but before closing the sale. At this point, a home inspector will come to the house and inspect the home in order to identify any health, safety or mechanical issues. Based on the outcome of the inspection, the buyer may be able to renegotiate their offer or request repairs are made. A Buyers Inspection is a way to gain valuable information about the biggest purchase of your life.
A seller’s inspection happens before the home is put on the market. Some sellers opt to have a home inspector come and inspect their home as they prepare to sell their house. This way, any identified issues can be mitigated and repaired beforehand so the closing process can move faster, when the time comes. After identifying and repairing the problem, sellers can add the cost of the repairs to the selling price.

OIL TANK SWEEP
An oil tank sweep is an important step home buyers should consider when having their home inspected. By conducting an oil tank sweep, a home inspector can make sure there are no abandoned fuel tanks on the property. Years ago, underground fuel tanks were used as they were considered less of a fire hazard. An abandoned fuel tank will rust and leak with time resulting in significant environmental damage and expensive remediation bills for new buyers. To conduct an oil tank sweep, a qualified technician will consult a government database for fuel tanks as well as an on-site search including a scan of the property and soil sampling. House Expert Home Inspections LLC. , is qualified and experienced in conducting an oil tank sweep in New Jersey.
