Welcome to Purple Martin Property Inspections, providing home inspections in Niagara Falls, St. Catharine’s and the surrounding areas as well as all around the Golden Horseshoe, including Hamilton, Burlington and Oakville.
When you want to purchase a property, before even deciding on which property to buy, you want to know if it will fit your needs!
Will the neighbourhood be the type that you would want to raise a family in, or retire in, or run a business from?
You want to know if the amenities and services you want are close at hand. Then when you select a property you want to know that the rooms are large enough and the layout meets your needs.
As important as these requirements are, the other questions that you should ask are as “Is this home safe?” and “Are there any major issues with the property?”
The Hidden problems of a Property Purchase
What you also need to know is whether your purchase is going to create any hidden costs because of poor building practices, insufficient maintenance or unforeseen damage by weather or “critters”.
This is where a home inspection is paramount to your purchasing decision.
Often times, couples purchase a property only to find that they are almost immediately faced with, sometimes huge, repair bills.
You only need to watch Holmes on Homes for proof of this.
Frequently the same is true of businesses, looking more for location, location, location and less about the condition, condition, condition.
Unfortunately, it is not only the older properties that suffer from these problems but new purpose-built properties as well.
At Purple Martin Property Inspections we work only for you!
It is more important to us that you understand the condition of the property you are thinking of buying or already own.
Our Home Inspectors always offer an independent, objective, and fair evaluation of the conditions found in the property.
We offer comprehensive inspection services that cover all your home inspection or commercial inspection needs, backed with over 22 years of working with new and older homes.
We allow extra time for inspections for those clients with particular concerns or first time home buyers. Be sure to let us know of your concerns or if you are a first-time buyer so we can allow adequate time. No extra charge for this service.
