BuildFax Property History Reports
Amerihome Advisors, LLC includes a free Property History report from BuildFAX with every full residential and commercial inspection (when available) which is an easy-to-read Property “Background Check” of the property of interest.
Due diligence- We like to know about the construction history of a property before we ever arrive at the site. That is why we do our homework first by viewing available MLS & Public data in addition to a BuildFax’s 19-point risk factor summary.
WHY USE AN INSPECTOR THAT PROVIDES BUILDFAX PROPERTY HISTORY REPORTS?
BuildFax provides inspectors with deep insight into a property, including all details of permitted home improvements and renovations made to the structure. This includes additions, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing updates, roof replacements, renovations, demolitions, and more. In addition to permitted updates, a BuildFax Property History Report can also show spans of time when updates haven’t occurred (often great indicators of aging systems). When purchasing an existing residential or commercial building, it is imperative that a buyer have a clear understanding of the history of the property.
WHAT IS THE COST?
A BuildFax Property History Report is included at no additional charge to the Client when ordering a Full Residential or Level-One Commercial Property Inspection.
HOW CAN I BETTER UNDERSTAND COVERAGE IN MY AREA?
BuildFax has permit information on the majority of permits issued in the U.S. In some areas, coverage is 90% or higher. In other, more rural areas, permit information is still being gathered, and more data comes online every day. It’s important to note that areas where an inspector may do business may have differing levels of coverage. Some areas may not have available data and is excluded from this offering.
WHERE DOES BUILDFAX GET ITS DATA?
BuildFax data is primarily sourced from permit data and collected directly from the source – the building department. This collected data is standardized into a common report format and mined using advanced data analytics to highlight the information that matters to inspectors and weed out the cryptic “noise” often found within permit text. The net result is an easy-to-read report that arms inspectors and clients with the life story of a property.
