Our turnaround time for the report is typically 24-48 hours.

Buying A Home

What could be more exciting than buying a home? The experience of a new community, new neighbors and friends, and perhaps even a whole new outlook on life can be quite exhilarating.

B & R will conduct a thorough evaluation of the home, helping you understand the property’s current condition. Our quality home inspectors are trained and certified to meet the industry’s highest standards.

Fewer Surprises Helps to Provide Peace of Mind

We know the home-buying process can be very stressful, and nothing could be worse than suddenly finding out that there are major defects with the property you just purchased. Our thorough and professional home inspections help ensure your familiarity with the home and the condition of its major systems; our findings are then presented to you in our computer generated report. Once armed with this knowledge, it will help you feel more secure about your purchasing decision.

A complete general home inspection helps:

*Provide assurance that you’ve made a sound buying decision.
*Reveal any necessary repairs and investments before you buy.
*Give you valuable details about each aspect of your new home.
*Help Reduce the risk of unwanted “surprises" after you move in.
*Alleviate buyer’s remorse.

Please review your Inspection Agreement for details regarding the scope of inspections and exclusions.

Real Estate Professionals

More and more real estate professionals are encouraging home buyers to invest in a professional home inspection before purchasing a property. Additionally, a growing number of agents are even suggesting pre-listing inspections to sellers. The reason is simple – a quality real estate inspection is to the advantage of everyone involved in a transaction. Buyers learn about the property up front and can proceed with greater confidence and peace of mind. Furthermore, sellers who’ve had a pre-listing inspection may sell their homes more quickly and with fewer surprises. Finally, real estate professionals enjoy more efficient transactions with less chance for unpleasant and potentially costly post-closing problems.

An B & R Home Inspection offers these and other benefits to real estate professionals:

Reduced Liability – B & R inspectors carry extensive Errors and Omissions insurance and General Liability insurance.

Less Buyer Discomfort – Whether the property your client is considering is old or new, our professional inspectors help provide peace of mind that the home is live-in ready.

Curtailed Buyer’s Remorse – Many homebuyers believe that a brand-new home is a worry-free investment. But even the best homebuilders make mistakes, and that’s where B & R can help. Our impartial inspectors can conduct a new home inspection that may disclose items in need of repair, therefore helping to reduce buyer’s remorse after the purchase.

Professional Image and Credibility – A professional B & R Enterprises inspection report helps lend credibility and stature to the image of the real estate professional. It can tell customers that the firm and its sales associates are working in the best interests of both the buyer and seller.

More Sales – The home is priced closer to its value, which can help improve the speed and likelihood of a sale.

Less Negotiation – Prior acknowledgement of any defects that are already reflected in the sales price may often leave buyers with fewer objections.

Reduced Listing Time – A home inspection benefits all parties involved by providing insight into the condition of the home, thereby helping to reduce the overall listing time of your client’s property.

For Home Sellers

Want a competitive edge in the housing market?

B & R can help you sell your home ASAP! Since everyone involved becomes more familiar with the property’s current condition, a professional home inspection helps to ensure fewer surprises in a real estate transaction. By making repairs and disclosing the home’s condition to a prospective buyer before negotiations begin, you can create an atmosphere of good faith and instill confidence about your home’s condition. This, in turn, may help sell your home faster and closer to your listing price.

Take the mystery out of selling your home and make it easier for prospective buyers to imagine themselves living there. Call B & R Enterprises today to schedule an inspection!
