Looking to Invest in a Multi-family Unit?

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
  • Roofs
  • Gutters
  • Decks
  • Plumbing systems
  • HVAC systems
  • Foundations
  • Garages
  • Staircases
  • Windows
  • Doors and entryways
  • Basements and attics
  • appliances
  • Ceilings
  • Flooring
  • 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:

  1. You’ll be having peace of mind that your property is safe and is in good condition
  2. It helps assess the property for items that may prove to be a liability
  3. It also helps in noting problem areas before they become a major issue
  4. 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.
