The Kardashians, the Osbournes, and Justin Beiber! The upscale city of Calabasas, CA has become the place for the hot, young and rich, according to Curbed LA News. Established as an independent city named Calabasas in 1991, the luscious city is making more attraction sites, growing in population and thus opening a direct path for home buyers. The Commons, Malibu Creek State Park, Leonis Adobe Museum are some of the destination spots near Calabasas that residents and tourists return to time after time. The residential and commercial properties in Old Town Calabasas, built in the early 1900’s add to the old-time charm and make this city pizazz. With these characteristics, Calabasas properties do tend to come with structural problems arising from their old age. In addition, due to the age of the properties, cracks in the walls, cracked or uneven floors exhibit symptoms of possible foundation problems, according to Today’s Home Owner.
Along with the age of the properties, the drought in the late 1950’s can have already damage homes and buildings. Cracking in the foundation, walls, etc. could have occurred due to the parched soil, according to CityofCalabasas.com. Plumbing issues are another common problem that occurs with older properties. These issues may also come to exist because many properties tend to be on the hillsides, since Calabasas falls in the hills west of San Fernando Valley. Although hillside homes carry a great value for their privacy and views, the slope of the land and the movement in the soil caused by the rain contribute to forming foundation and structural problems for properties. Advanced Group Property Inspectors will identify these issues during the inspection from both the foundational and structural point of view. A structural problem with any property is probably every owner’s worst nightmare as it can tremendously decrease a home’s value and cause problems in the near future. With the right inspectors, these issues will be identified and can be repaired.
