BEFORE YOU LIST IT...
Understand The Responsibilities
An industry starting to see more and more issues with neglected failing infrastructures is the real estate industry. Many buyers don't know homeowners are responsible for the sewer lines below their home, called private sewer laterals. Private sewer laterals are the portion of the sewer network connecting private properties to the public sewer system. This responsibility could extend under driveways, walkways, streets, and, on occasion, other people's property.
The nation's infrastructure is aging, bringing many problems that buyers and realtors need to understand. Many of today's sewer lines are well over their expected lifespan of 50 - 60 years and are made of materials unsuitable to withstand the area's and the nation's growing population.
Many agencies are now required, or at a minimum, to include sewer lines in a home inspection, and if a problem arises, this can cause significant issues at closing for the realtor, potential buyer, and seller. But we are here to educate and help those who need it. Being accepted as an approved technology, sewer liners or CIPP (Cured Place Pipe) has made a massive difference in this market, including the way that home inspections, particularly sewer video inspections, are viewed. Having an issue with a sewer line that needs to be corrected is no longer a daunting or somewhat impossible project. We make it affordable.
We have been watching this trend for quite some time and have developed excellent working relationships with realtors and brokers throughout the area to educate them on the benefits of trenchless technology.
Representing someone buying a home is an exciting time for that buyer, and you don't want the home closing to fall through because due diligence wasn't done to include a sewer line video inspection. The real estate industry often neglects the underground infrastructure because most people are not aware of what the homeowner is responsible for, and this needs to change.
Please call us at (412) 534-3432 to schedule your sewer video inspection today. If you have any questions about the process, we are here to help.
