Commercial inspections differ slightly from residential inspections in that they focus on primary investor prospective concerns. Whether it be an apartment building that houses family to family or shopping centers with 24/7 foot and automotive traffic the approach is the same, improve safety and assure tenancy. Our team of qualified inspectors are trained to focus on what’s most important without hussing and fussing about the unnecessary details.
Why do I need a property inspection?
It’s simple, you won’t know what you are buying until you REALLY know what you are buying. Subsequently, you can’t mention the word “buying” without the obvious talks of money. Investors are aware that their bottom line is in bold at each end of year tax summary and mid-transaction comparable analysis – so it’s no secret that a paid service such as an inspection should instigate an according savings somewhere along the lifespan of ownership. Our inspectors pride themselves on saving our clients money and helping them avoid unforeseen future dilemmas.
The purpose of the commercial inspection is to provide you with information regarding the general condition of the property. Keep in mind that a commercial property inspection is a general survey and basic operation of these systems and excludes systems or components which are not easily accessible.
