Looking to Buy or Sell Your Home? What to Know About Your Septic 

The housing market is still pretty crazy, but that doesn’t mean you should be deterred from moving on to the next season in your life. Whether you’re buying a home or selling one, you should know what to do with a septic system through this process. Septic systems typically need to be inspected before selling/buying a home. This inspection is done through a real estate inspection. So, what is a real estate septic inspection? Why is it necessary or helpful during the home buying process? We’ll answer these questions and more in the following blog! 

What is a septic real estate inspection? 

A septic real estate inspection functions much like a typical home inspection during the buying or selling of a property. Except that this inspection is specific to the septic system of a home. It takes an in-depth look at the entire system and helps indicate any possible issues that may need to be addressed prior to the exchange of property. Here at Miller’s, we take pride in our in-depth inspections that are sure to identify any necessary repairs. We’ll start by asking for a detailed history of the system and then go through and inspect the ins and outs of your system. From flushing toilets to septic pumping, our process is in-depth so that you don’t have any last-minute surprises. Our septic experts are highly trained and experienced, meaning you’ll get results you can trust. 

Do you need one? 

This depends; sometimes, they are stipulated in part of the contract and other times, they are not. We encourage you to choose whatever is best for your situation. However, a septic real estate inspection can show a detailed look at what to expect from your system. It can even highlight areas that may require repair and help you to plan for that in the future. We’ll be transparent; septic real estate inspections can be pricey and time-consuming. We know that’s not exactly great news in the chaos of moving, but we believe it’s an investment worth making.  You can visit our website here if you’d like to learn more before investing in this inspection.
