If you’re looking to buy or sell a home soon, there are many things to consider. You’ll want to make sure that you live in a place where it’s convenient to get to work most importantly. It also needs to have easy access to entertainment opportunities and good schools. You’ll also need to think about what kind of house you’re looking for. Do you like ranch-style or big old two-story homes? How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want?

There are many factors to think about, but there is another important thing to consider before buying a home – a chimney inspection. Many real estate agents, like Kristina Theilen with Keller Williams, recommend getting your chimney inspected before you post it on the market. or insist on a chimney inspection before you buy the house.  A chimney inspection ensures the fireplace in the home is in sound condition and ready for use. At Owens Chimney Systems, we offer chimney inspections for homebuyers and home sellers. Let us help!

Something Else That’s Important to Think About

If you found repairs that need to be completed before buying the home, you’ll be able to negotiate who will be responsible for paying those repairs. If you buy first and inspect later, you may find major damage when you try to use your fireplace. In addition, you will be the one who will be responsible for paying necessary repairs.

If you’re looking to sell your home, you’ll give potential buyers peace of mind by having a professional chimney company come in and inspect your chimney. When you call Owens Chimney Systems, we’ll perform a Level Two chimney inspection. During this inspection, we’ll do a video inspection so that we can know the interior condition of your chimney. This level of inspection is required when you make changes to your chimney. It’s also required when you sell your home, to protect the buyer and seller from any claims that the fireplace isn’t in the condition it should be.
