Dave Galbreath Home Inspections, is focused on providing all the information you need to make sure your dream home stays that way. Whether, you are purchasing a property as a primary residence, vacation home, or rental property, it is essential that you get a home analysis report completed. The purchasing of a property is one of the largest financial investments you can make and I want to make sure you do not experience any unwanted surprises after escrow closes. Part of my job is to give you peace of mind that the real estate you are purchasing is in the condition you expect it to be.
Mammoth is home to some of the largest winters in the Western United States. While these winters make for spectacular days skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, or snowmobiling, they are also incredibly tough on the homes and properties that reside in the beautiful Eastern Sierra Nevadas. Heavy snow loads can lead to roof damage, cracked pipes, or fallen trees that bring structural danger. The purpose of a report is to ensure you are aware of any fixes that may need to take place. As a former general contractor in the area, not only am I a certified home inspector, but I also have 40+ years of construction experience that allows me to make a complete home review and spot any concerns that you should be aware of.

Why do I need a Home Inspection Report? The simple reason is to know the detailed condition of the property you are purchasing. Said in a simple manner, to purchase a property with peace of mind. An inspection is going to cost a fraction of the purchase price and ensure that your hard earned money is put into an investment that you can enjoy for years to come. The last thing a property buyer wants is unwanted hidden costs and expensive surprises after the property has been purchased. When a home inspection is done as part of the due diligence in a property, it can prepare you as the buyer for additional information to utilize during the negotiation. The purchase price and if needed funding terms are key parts of any real estate purchase, but a detailed property review will ensure the property is in fact worth the purchase price. Knowledge is powerful and an important step in equipping home buyer to have all the information necessary to find the right home in the right condition for the right price.
What information is included in a home inspection report? Inspection is going to provide both a broad overview and a specific detailed report on the condition of the property. Every property inspection is unique because all real estate is unique. Some reports may only find mild or no repairs needed, while other reports may discover major structural repairs that will require significant attention. For a detailed report template of everything that is covered email or call me and I can go over the details covered on the report further. As a broad overview a report will cover the following keys areas:
Bedrooms Interior Basement Crawl Space Plumbing Heating Electrical
How do I get an inspection report & how long does it take?I am a local certified Home Inspector so you can call me directly. Depending on the size of the project, I can get your inspection completed and report filed within several business days. In terms of cost, I have transparent pricing based predominantly on the size of the property that is being inspected. Call me and I can give you a free quote. For a home Inspection the prices ranges from $300 up to $700 for a larger home. Keep in mind this is a small fraction when compared to the property that is being purchases. Given the example above lets say you are getting ready to buy a beautiful new home in either Mammoth or Bishop and the home purchase prices is $300,000. If the cost for the home inspection is $300 you would be spending 1% of 1 % to ensure the real estate is in the condition that you think that it is in. If you ask me that added peace of mind is more than worth the cost on a home inspection done by a certified professional.
What does a Home Inspector do? As a local certified home inspector my job is to look at a real estate property in its entirety. A home inspector will literally look at every visible inch of a home both the exterior and the interior. From small cracks in an electrical outlet to major foundation problems or roofing issues. Our main objective is to provide a detailed report that highlights the function and safety of the building. A home inspector is not a building code inspector which has a different function to ensure buildings are within the local building code. A home inspector is more focused on the safety and use ability of a home. This is especially important when a property is up for sale. Our report will detail potential safety or use ability concerns. Providing both the buyer and the seller with detailed information as they work together to determine the appropriate price for a real estate property.
