New years often result in new promises, but here at Kelting, we want to re-state our old promise to you that when you work with us you get more than just an inspection. One of the ways that we keep this promise to you is to offer a free Buildfax Report with every inspection that is ordered. Buildfax is the nation’s number one source regarding home history data. It is a resource that professionals have used for years to help them provide thorough services on homes where they are working.
This report will give you the history of the home you are considering for purchase, including: the number of permits opened on the house, the dates of permits, and the total cost of any improvements made on the home. You will also learn why improvements were made, such as improvements made because of natural disaster, fire, or simply because the previous owners were trying to improve their living space. Our hope is that the knowledge of this information will give you peace of mind as well as an awareness of any potential issues that could arise in the future so that you can make an informed decision on your purchase. While our residential inspection shows you the current condition of a home, a Buildfax report provides the history of the home. These two reports combined can provide ideas as to potential areas of improvement or areas of concern that may arise in the future as well.
At Kelting, we firmly believe in giving our clients as much information as possible when they are working to purchase a home. This thorough information has been, and will continue to be, our staple and promise to you as the years go by. As the saying goes “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin
