When you are going through the process of buying a home or a commercial property, you often take a very close look at it before deciding to go through the purchase. We hire inspectors to walk through the property and point out every flaw or potential problem so that we can give a firm yes or no before closing. While we might take a good hard look at the property, are we taking a good hard look at what is beneath the property? Probably not. Real estate septic inspections are crucial before buying any property with a septic system.
Most property inspectors are unable to perform a proper real estate septic inspection. All that they will be able to tell you is what they can ascertain from above ground. Under the ground might be an entirely different story. Septic systems can be costly to repair or replace and knowing what you have in terms of septic systems with a real estate septic inspection can help you determine if you want to continue with the purchase of the property, negotiate the price, or walk away entirely. Even with the upfront cost of a real estate septic inspection, you’ll come out ahead knowing exactly what problems may or may not exist with the septic system.
A real estate septic inspection should be done by a septic company that has experience in both commercial and residential properties in the area that you are looking. Here at Sauer Septic, we would be more than happy to take a look at any real estate that you are considering for purchase, commercial and residential.
