Should I Get an Inspection for a Gastonia Condo?
If you are in the process of purchasing a unit in a condominium building? You may be wondering if getting it inspected is necessary. Some buyers are uncertain about what type of home inspection is needed for a condo. Tribute Home Inspections LLC's team recommends getting the interior and the exterior of a condo in Gastonia inspected. You really will want to pay to have your condo inspected. The potential price of having to repair faulty electrical or plumbing systems is potentially far more expensive.

Why Get Exterior Inspections on Gastonia Condominiums?
When you purchase a condo unit, you will be buying into an HOA (Homeowners Association). The HOA collects a monthly fee from the owners in order to maintain the exterior aspects of the building, such as roofing, siding, and gutters.
Why is inspecting the exterior of a condo important, given it's covered by the HOA? Understanding the overall condition of the building and its reserves of funds will give you a better sense of the health of the building and the likelihood that you'll be hit with additional "special assessments" to handle large repairs such as roof replacements. When Tribute Home Inspections LLC inspects the exterior of the building, they will provide the amount of "life" left in the exterior structures.
Tribute Home Inspections LLC can help you understand your condo's resale certificate, which buyers can review prior to purchasing. This certificate allows you to review the reserve study, in which the HOA lists expenses for upcoming projects. You'll want to see that the HOA is well-funded and has the necessary reserves required for maintenance and larger repairs.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:
★★★★★ - "We had a short due diligence period, so we were really scrambling to find an inspector. We called 4 or 5 inspectors, but none of them could work us into their schedule. We called Tribute, and they were able to get us in the next day. The inspector showed up right on time and did a very thorough inspection of the house. He explained everything he found very clearly and took the time to answer all of the questions that we had. He even gave us a home maintenance manual that explains how to perform the basic things ourselves going forward. We had the final inspection report within a couple of hours after the inspection. We got great service, and I would highly recommend Tribute."

★★★★★ - "Tribute Home Inspections was recommended to us by our agent. We are first time homebuyers, and really didn’t know anything about what to look for. We called and scheduled the inspection, and the inspector (Matt) showed up and was well into the inspection before we arrived at the house. When he was finished, he walked us around and pointed out everything that he had found during the inspection. Fortunately, there were no major issues. Just a few little things that needed to be repainted or adjusted, but nothing too bad. And he pointed out a few other things that we will just need to monitor in the future. Matt was very knowledgeable and very professional, and really took his time to explain everything to us. He gave us a book that explains how all of the different systems in a house function and how to maintain them, which we really appreciated. We had a great experience with our inspection and would definitely recommend Tribute to anyone needing a home inspection."
