Rodents, Chemicals, Asbestos Beware!

David suited up for the atticChances are, if you have recently had an Atlanta Home Inspection, you noticed the Atlanta Home Inspectors  wearing special white jumpsuits when entering attics, basements and crawlspaces.  Although the suits subtley remind us of astronaut gear, and they make the inspectors look quite sytlish-  it actually  is a protective outerwear. Tyvek® clad home inspectors are able to enter into areas where squirrels, oil, and perhaps toxic substances could be found.  Rodents, chemicals, asbestos beware!  The polyethylene fibers and random pattern bonding of the material make home inspectors invincible… sort of.  When suited up, the inspectors are resistant to water, chemicals, UV rays, and depending on the grade of suit, fire.

A DuPont researcher named Jim white, invented Tyvek® in 1955. However, it wasn’t until 10 years later that DuPont officially trademarked the product as Tyvek®. DuPont still manufactures the product today. The synthetic can be found in clothing, envelopes,tape, and home wrap – to name a few.  Builders install Tyvek®  as a moisture barrier. It also works to prevent air infiltration.

Keeping safe is just one of the many facets of being an Atlanta Home Inspector. They boldly enter where most men don’t dare to go (insert chuckle here), to keep home buyers and home sellers safe. It is always a good idea to have a home inspection in Atlanta or wherever you live, in order to protect your family and your investments.  Ask about special tests such as radon, air quality and pest control when buying a new home. Understading what a home inspection is and what the benefits are to you is an important piece of the real estate puzzle.

High Demand on Existing Homes Provides Positive Outlook

Existing home supply

An “existing home” is one that’s been previously occupied and cannot be categorized as new construction. As Atlanta home inspection  providers we see several of both types of homes. Due to the populated areas where we provide home inspections in Atlanta, Ga there is a continuous flow of buyers in “existing home” transactions. Could this be an indicator that a housing recovery is beginning nationwide?

According to the National Association of REALTORS®, the January 2012 Existing Home Sales showed  a 4 percent increase as compared to December’s revised figures. There was also a 20-month high in home resales during this January’s reports.

The good news is that demand is high in Canton, Woodstock, Roswell, Kennesaw and other surrounding cities not only for home sales, but for the services needed to complete real estate transactions. This would indicate that Marietta home inspections are on the rise, as well.  There is still a positive outlook for those who wish to sell their  homes.  Since housing stock is at a 5 year low, the demand is higher than the supply, which makes for a higher price on the homes. Higher price on the homes, means more money in the seller’s pockets.

Interestingly enough,  at the current pace of sales, today’s complete home inventory would “sell out” in 6.1 months.

Analysts say that a 6-month supply is a market in balance. Anything less is Bull Market territory.

As contract failures subside, Existing Home Sales are expected to rise even faster. Many buyers have tried to buy but could not for reasons such as: appraisals coming in lower than contract pricing, home inspection issues that could not be negotiated, and mortgage denials.

First-time buyers continue to power the home resale market. In January, 33% of all sales were made to first-time buyers, up four points from last year. This statistic suggests that renters are moving into homeownership, an important component in a sustained housing market recovery.

Given high demand and shrinking supply, we should expect for Bradshaw Farms, Bridgemill, and Harmony on the Lakes  home prices to rise in the coming months, if they haven’t already. Thankfully, mortgage rates remain near all-time lows.
