With my years of experience helping folks navigate property inspections, let me stress the importance of getting a good look at those sewer lines when you’re buying a home. While you might be dazzled by all the fancy stuff in a house, don’t overlook this crucial step. A thorough sewer scope inspection performed by Realm Inspections can save you from major headaches down the road.
So, what exactly is a sewer scope inspection? It’s when we use a specialized camera attached to a really long cable to check out the insides of the pipes in a home’s sewer system. This lets us spot any problems like clogs, cracks, or other issues that could mess up the plumbing.
See, unlike checking out the roof or the foundation, which are pretty obvious, a sewer scope dives into stuff you can’t see from the surface. Finding and fixing these problems early can save you a ton of money. I mean, fixing a sewer lateral can set you back anywhere from a few grand up to $20,000! That’s no joke.
And here’s the real kicker: if we find any issues during the inspection, you’ve got some bargaining power. You can negotiate repairs with the seller or maybe even adjust the sale price to cover the costs. Ignoring this step could lead to big bills and a lot of stress down the line.
Think of it like this: getting a sewer scope inspection isn’t just about protecting your investment; it’s about making sure your future home is safe, sound, and in it for the long haul. It shows you’re serious about taking care of your new place and making smart decisions along the way.
