I offer commercial property inspections in Wisconsin.
As you can imagine commercial properties come in many forms. I often perform
inspections on small business properties similar to a home inspection. Commercial
inspections do not have to follow the same standards as residential inspections so
the inspection can be performed in any manor desired. Most clients opt for a full
inspection but some desire only major systems inspections.
Apartment buildings, restaurant, store front, small manufacturing facilities can be
quoted using the standard form. Typically they are considered residential up to 4
units. $300 minimum charge for inspection.
Multi-family (4 or more units) usually starts at $500 per building and the reports are
detailed like a typical home inspection for each unit and the building as a whole.
These can be inspected as commercial or a full residential type inspection.
Additional units within the same complex can be discounted at a volume rate.
Larger commercial facilities will be quoted in consideration of many factors
including square footage, construction type, and specialized equipment like rooftop
HVAC, similar items require specialized inspections. I will bring in a team of master
trades people to inspect and test these areas. I coordinate this service and perform
the general inspection plus consolidate the reports into one easy to read format.
Investor (major defects only) reports are also available for multi family and
commercial properties. These inspections and reports have far less detail and are
geared towards seasoned investors. I cover the major systems and report on defects
only. I typically quote these inspections giving a minimum charge of $300 which
includes 3 hours of onsite inspection and reporting.
No report consultations These are not considered inspections. I occasionally
assist clients while they are shopping for a property to purchase. I will accompany the
client during a typical viewing prior to writing an offer to purchase. We can verbally
discuss the property condition in a limited manor. This often reveals initial concerns
that may help the buyer avoid wasting precious time and money on writing an offer,
appraisals, and inspection. If the buyer decides to make an offer, a full inspection is
still needed as a walk thorough, “hands in pockets”, evaluation does not allow access
to the roof, electrical system, or many other major systems that most often reveal
additional concerns. Minimum trip charges are determined by location. Hourly rate
applies there after. If time permits multiple properties can be evaluated within a few
hours. This is not intended to replace a full inspection. Discounts can be given when
combined with a full inspection.
