Selling Your Home?
If you’re planning on selling your house, getting an AmeriSpec OnDemand pre-listing home inspection report gives you the advantage of having your report posted on the OnDemand website, FREE for anyone to view. In turn, getting you more traffic and potential interest on your listing.
AmeriSpec OnDemand can help speed up the process of selling your home by attracting more eligible buyers. The pre-listing report ensures full disclosure at the time of the sale, giving potential buyers more confidence.
Getting an inspection and report before listing your home also gives you the chance to fix or make allowance for items that could negatively affect your asking price. This results in more leverage over the price and allows everyone to understand the true condition of your home.
The inspection report also ensures that negotiations will be easier, with fewer conditions, and should only have to happen once. No surprises will be found during an inspection after an offer has been made. By getting an AmeriSpec OnDemand pre-listing home inspection, you’ll experience less stress once you begin selling your house, giving your home its best chance to land a higher offer.
COMMERCIAL BUILDING INSPECTION SERVICES
Helping You Understand Your Business Is Our Business.
An AmeriSpec commercial building inspection will give you the answers you need about your property. A single walk-through is all it takes for our trained commercial property inspectors to survey the building, review appropriate documentation, and conduct interviews, if needed, in order to determine the property’s condition and give you peace of mind you need.
The American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) has published a standard guide to performing Property Condition Assessments (PCA). Our inspectors have been trained on the ASTM E2018 standard and use it as a baseline to perform PCAs of commercial buildings. We can work with clients to determine the scope of the inspection depending on their requirements and the age, occupancy, and type of building. This includes anything from performing a general visual examination of the property to a comprehensive inspection of all technical components of the building using a team of specialists.
In addition to information and photographs, the AmeriSpec report provides recommendations for remedying major deficiencies, updating ageing major components, and undertaking further detailed investigation, if required, and the timing associated with those recommendations. Depending on the type of inspection chosen, our inspectors can also include in the report approximate costs for items requiring attention in the short, medium, and long term.

RADON TESTING SERVICES
Is This Dangerous Gas Lurking In Your Home?
Radon is a gas that occurs naturally outdoors in harmless amounts. It’s produced from the breakdown of uranium in soil and rocks. It sometimes gets concentrated in homes built on soil with natural uranium deposits. It can enter buildings through cracks in floors or walls, construction joints, or gaps in foundations around pipes, wires or pumps. Radon levels are usually highest in the basement or crawl space. The presence of radon in the home is a serious risk to the health of you and your family.
When radon gas is breathed into the lungs the person is exposed to small amounts of radiation. This radiation may damage the cells in the lining of the lungs and increase a person’s risk of lung cancer. Exposure to the combination of radon gas and cigarette smoke creates a greater risk for lung cancer than either factor alone.
If you think your home is at risk of contamination contact AmeriSpec for a radon test.
Book an appointment to have an AmeriSpec radon test today.
