Home Sweet Home
You've heard it before, “A man’s home is his castle.” A house is probably the largest purchase we'll ever make. Whether you are a real estate professional helping your client find the perfect house or a home buyer turning a dream into a reality, be certain with Cingo.
A home inspection allows buyers to identify areas that may need to be addressed so purchase decisions can be made with confidence. Typical home inspections include assessment of the heating and air conditioning systems, plumbing and electrical systems, roof, attic and insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors as well as the foundation, basement and structural components. Cingo home inspection pricing depends on several factors, but averages $400 and includes a comprehensive pest inspection. An official termite clearance letter can be provided if needed, and there is a $25 administrative fee.
Home Inspections vary in length and detail, often depending on the age and maintenance of a home. For example, you can see sample reports for a well-maintained 2-year-old home as compared to a fairly-maintained 43-year-old home.
Pest Inspections and Termite Letters
Beyond the traditional home inspection, it's important to assess the home for signs of pest activity and conditions that indicate future problems. Banks, mortgage companies and other lenders often require a termite clearance letter that indicates the structure has been inspected by a licensed pest professional. In Georgia, these are called Wood Infestation Inspection Reports (WIRs) and in South Carolina they are known as CL-100s. Cingo has partnered with the real estate industry for more than 40 years. We can meet you onsite quickly to keep your closing on track. A comprehensive pest inspection is $50, and results will be delivered within 48 hours. If a WIR or CL-100 is needed for closing, it can be issued for $25.
