Real Estate Inspection in Colorado Springs

Page for real estate inspection in colorado SpringsWhen buying a home for yourself, as an investment, or when buying a commercial building for your business an inspection will help you make informed decisions AND will alert you to issues that potentially may need attention "At The Time of Inspection". This received knowledge will help you in price negotiation as well as the planning in time segmented schedules for maintenance by the level of concern and budgeting opportunities.

If you are looking for a well qualified inspector to perform your buyers business investment, or a home inspection in Colorado Springs or in the surrounding service areas; you are at the right place. ASC will assist you with your concerns. I will prove to you that a service friendly hand shake, an experienced level of talk, and an adequate amount of time must come with a property's inspection.

  • Time is of essence: Once your broker has submitted your "Offer To Buy" document it is important to have your inspection tentatively scheduled while waiting for a preliminary acceptance of your terms by the seller. Generally a contract of this formality will have the article that gives you as a buyer up to ten or twelve days (more in some cases and commercially) to answer back after further inspection of the property and structure(s). To get all of the answers or introductory costs you are looking for can take a number of days. Therefore, it is important to have immediate access to the property for inspection during this important period to have as many days as possible for "homework" between the inspection and the "Inspection/Objection" deadline date. Make sure you receive the confirmation of these dates from your broker when you sign your "Offer to Buy" contract.

    I'd like to hear from you now while you are here! Call me at the above number so we can talk about your specific situation. I would like to help you with the contractual options you have at this time.

    With the ASC service your time and inspection investment is facilitated immediately because time is of essence. Our detailed findings are gathered on a three page-three part hand written report form. Your ASC Summary Report is a separate portion that is created for easy reference by outlining the related property condition issues alphabetically "At The Time Of Inspection" [ATOI]. As a client you will receive two copies at your scheduled appointment time with the immediate information being available for homework and preparing updating/repair services costs, quotations, and/or direct issue negotiations.

    My service does not end when the inspection is complete. Your ASC inspector is available, at no charge, for any report clarifications and questions at all times during your homework preparations and well after your closing. Our attention to you our client is unmatched in business
