It's Monday, are you busy this week?

I hope all Active Rain members are busy this week.

I have a re-inspection of two homes that the sellers "SAY" the repairs have been completed and they want me to verify that they have been completed.

I also have a full home inspection to get done for a new client. Two Relocation home assesments and a roof inspection.

When I perform home inspections and re-inspections for Desert Sun Home Inspections, there can be no Grey area. 

The repairs have to be right. Are the repairs done? Are they one correctly? Who did the repairs?Was a permit needed for the repairs and or upgrades to the homes electrical system?

There are a lot of questions for the seller or the sellers agent.

Too many times we find the seller simply called their Uncle Bob to do the repairs for the seller without thinking of the consequences of the repairs not being correct and the repairs needing to be re-repaired.

That's just a lot of wasted toime for the seller , the buyer and thier agents. Not to mention the repairman who thought the repairs would not be checked as in the past.

Here we have an old A/C unit from the early 80's that will not even come on. This unit needs to be repaired or replaced. That's up to the repairman to decide.


Old A/C unit.

This may be a Lennox unit. But it's still not operational at time of inspection.

Have a great day everyone.

This is post Twenty Six for the November Challenge.

Good morning Clint,

I sure hope those sellers called a licensed HVAC company and you find the system running. I'm closing on 2 homes this week and the buyers had their re-inspections so we a good to go!

I'm with Jay... looks like a LENNO unit to me, lol. Probably too old to repair, and not nearly as efficient as the newer ones, let's get rid of it!

Have a great week Clint!! (yes, I will be busy too)

Here in the moderate climate of Connecticut, that unit would be just approaching middle age :) I'm kidding, sort of. Here our A/C gets used about 3 months out of the year. I see a lot of older units that still function. 

Have a great week Clint.

Hi Jay,

An A/C tech has been dispatched to the home to see what they can get done with this unit.

I think it could get fixed, but the problem of age is still prevalent. Not good for a buyer.

Have a great day in Bristow.

Hi Dorie,

They are and you are on the right track for a really good 2013.

Too bad you don't have any subdivisions to sell homes in. LOL

Have a really good week in Austin, Texas.

Hi Roy,

It seems all I get to see are the dirty colors of the fall season. We don't get a whole lot of colors other than brown and yellow here.

Have a good day in Gaithersgurg.

Hi Fred,

My suggestion was to replace the unit, but as you know we just report the conditions and move on.

Have a good day in the Tampa area today.

Hi James.

Here the units gets used about nine months a year. Now you know why they want to keep a unit as long as possible.

Have a great day in Connecticut my friend.

Hello Anita, 

That's good to hear. Never know what the 2013 year will bring, but the numbers look good for a really good 2013 selling season.

Have a good week in Warner Robins.

Hi Al,

This unit appears to be about twenty years old.

About time to change it out and start over.

Have a great day and week in Ormond by the Sea.

Thank you Joshua.

I hope they do. I did get two calls yesterday about inspections. One I got and the other was shopping.

Have a great week and day in New York City.

Hello James,

This is still a problem everywhere you look.

Then the sellers get mad when you find the "not so right repairs made by Uncle Bob."

Have a good day in Rogers my friend.

Clint, That baby looks like the end is near if not already acheived. I think a new one is in order. Question how many months a year are you in AC mode down there?
