We respect and appreciate our relationship with the real estate community in Arizona. We feel that real estate agents provide a very valuable service to their clients when assisting them in buying or selling a home, especially if that home has possible structural foundation issues and may need foundation repairs.
We understand that you, the Realtor, are being held to a high professional standard and are expected by the home buyers and the home sellers to know what to look for if there are signs of possible foundation problems.
We are very aware of the urgency associated with the closing of a real estate transaction and we will work with the real estate agents and the homeowners to schedule and complete any necessary foundation repairs.
We understand that you may have some anxiety if you have just received an inspection report on one of your listings, and the inspection report is suggesting that the home may be having structural foundation problems, which will need further review by a qualified contractor. When you get that scary home inspection report, just give us a call and we will review the report and schedule a time to meet at the home.
We offer Realtors a foundation inspection report for homes within the Phoenix, Arizona metro area.
Here is a list of possible signs of foundation problems that you, the Realtor, should look for:
1 – Cracks in the walls, floor, and in the ceiling
2 – Doors and windows that won’t open and close correctly
3 – Sloping floors
4 – Exterior wall cracks in the stucco or the brick
5 – Exterior cracks in the stem wall of the foundation
