Vancouver is one of our favourite places to do home inspections. With the beautiful surrounding mountains and fresh sea breeze from the neighboring ocean there is much to see and do. Buildings and homes date back to the early 1900’s for those people looking for a beautiful character home. There are also many new condominiums being built. These new homes place you high up in the sky to take in Vancouver’s breathtaking views. It truly is a growing city with many diverse people and cultures. At Mr. Home Inspector we have a great insight with respect to the sub areas within Vancouver and can guide you in your next home purchase. We have 17 years experience inspecting homes in Vancouver and still going strong!
There are many types of condos to choose from in Vancouver – from low rise to high-rise, and old styles to new. A number of new condo projects are currently under construction within the Vancouver downtown core, giving access to new styles and layouts. There are also many condos with a deep history that are from the 1990’s era of leaky condos. No matter what type of construction you are purchasing, new or old, make sure that you read the strata and engineering reports. These reports can give you vital insight into what you are purchasing. Just because it is a brand new construction project does not mean you are in the clear for problems. Schedule a condo inspection by Mr. Home Inspector and we can help you make the right choice for your future.
If you are looking for a little more space while staying on budget, there are many townhomes to choose from in Vancouver. Townhomes are great for first time homebuyers or those looking to downsize. Townhouses often come with a strata attached. Take the time to review the strata minutes before your complete your purchase. Strata minutes can offer a wealth of information into the property you are about to purchase.
Vancouver houses have such a selection from old heritage homes to new homes built to today’s standards. While the old heritage homes offer a great look and history, be aware of the issues that might exist in these homes such as knob and tube wiring, vermiculite and asbestos. After years of inspecting these units, we know what warning signs to look for.
