In these new and uncertain times we have many questions regarding CO-VID 19 and how it is impacting not just human lives, but our every day existence.
Governor DeWine issued a state-wide shut down of all non essential businesses in order to flatten the curve and ease the spread of this devastating virus. The natural question is, “what are essential businesses?”
In short, the real estate industry is considered an essential industry and thereby all the businesses that contribute to the operation of this industry.
Home inspections are an integral part of the home buying process and here at Inspection Tech we are committed to performing the highest quality inspections with attention to the smallest of details and are following Governor DeWine’s, and the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing and keeping ourselves and our clients and agents safe during this time.
We are operating at this time in a “business as usual” manner. We are available for inspections 7 days a week from 8am until 6pm and our office assistants are all working remotely at this time, answering phones and scheduling inspections from 8am-8pm Monday through Friday and 10am until 6pm on Saturday & Sunday.
It has never been a requirement that clients, or even agents attend inspections. We have always encouraged both parties to be present as home inspections are informative and often a learning experience for potential home buyers. In these times of social distancing we want our agents and clients to know that they have the option of not attending the inspection and that Inspection Tech has lockbox insurance and we are fully able to access properties with a lockbox code.
We issue our reports via email and can go over all details and any questions via email or a simple phone call. Payments are able to be made online via the link in the confirmation emails that are sent out after scheduling your inspection.
We work with many out of state investors and have performed many inspections without clients or agents present and have an impeccable history of expertise and professionalism in regards to these inspections.
Keeping ourselves and our agents and clients safe are of the utmost importance to us as Inspection Tech and being here for you during the home inspection process is paramount in what we do.
