Multi-Unit Housing Inspections

Multi-unit housing properties (otherwise known as multi-family) are typically bought and sold as investments. They are primarily held for cash flow purposes. Unlike single family residences, the values of this real estate are directly tied to factors such as occupancy rates, rental rates, and expenditures for upkeep, taxes, etc.

The vast majority of multi-unit housing that is bought and sold in the Detroit Metro market has substantial deferred maintenance. The need for a qualified home inspector with practical knowledge of these types of properties cannot be overstated. Our owner, David, is an experienced real estate investor and does all of our multi-unit (multi-family) housing inspections.

During due diligence we recommend every individual unit be inspected. Occasionally a buyer will only want to inspect a portion of the building’s units. This is not a prudent move. For example, a buyer wanted a multi-unit housing inspection with only a portion of the individual units examined in order to save money.

After closing, one of the units not inspected had a mold issue. Repairs wound up costing more than 8 times as much as she “saved” by not examining all units. Obviously, this was a hard-learned lesson and one that will never be forgotten.

Like all of our reports, the multi-unit housing inspection report includes photos as well as clear explanations of what is discovered. Our goal is to uncover the true condition of the property making sure our client fully understands it. Armed with this information, the client and his/her agent can make informed decisions on how to best proceed with the real estate transaction.

Our owner, David, is an experienced real estate investor and personally handles all multi-unit housing inspections. Contact us and he’ll be glad to discuss your needs in detail.
