Life is ever-changing, and at some point, you may decide to invest in a multi-family property.
If that time is now, you’ll probably want to protect your investment by assessing the property’s condition before investing.
A perfect way to do that is to carry out a general inspection of your multi-unit.
What is a multi-unit Inspection?
This is a general inspection carried out on a property with two or four units such as duplexes, townhouses, and condominiums.
And like any other general inspection, multi-family inspections focus on the main components of the property, which are:
- Exterior components
- Plumbing systems
- HVAC systems
- Doors and entryways
- Basements and attics
- And much more
Why Should You Get a Multi-Unit Inspection?
Like a general home inspection, having an inspection done on your multi-unit property can help in more than one way:
- You’ll be having peace of mind that your property is safe and is in good condition
- It helps assess the property for items that may prove to be a liability
- It also helps in noting problem areas before they become a major issue
- You’ll also be able to save money in the long run.
Remember, because the size of the property is bigger than a single dwelling unit, Inspection costs are usually higher.
The inspection costs usually depend on how many units are to be inspected and if other inspection services are included, like a termite inspection on wind-mitigation Inspection.
