Home Buyers and Real Estate Agents…the Advanced Structural Assessment is the Best Way to Evaluate the House Structure.

The old-school way for a home buyer to understand the soundness of a prospective house is by having a regular home inspector look at it as part of a general home inspection. Read here why that isn’t good enough.

The right way to understand the soundness of the house is by having an experience home inspector with extra structural training not only collect the routine inspection info, but also collect house measurements critical to structural understanding. Think of it like this: would you rather get your annual medical by a doctor just looking you over, or by a doctor using special tools like stethoscope, sphygmomanometer (for blood pressure), an otoscope (for the ears), etc. That’s the difference, a regular home inspection is basically an inspector eyeballing the house whereas the Advanced Structural Assessment relies on genuine data.

With the Advanced Structural Assessment you are going to get the best possible chance of detecting a structural issue. Is it needed on every house? Unfortunately, you don’t know how important it is until you get the results. Click on the links below for advice on when to consider adding the Advanced Structural Assessment.
