For Homebuyers & Sellers

Buying or selling a home can be an exciting and nerve-wracking experience. It’s always a good idea to consult with a qualified professional regarding the home’s electrical system before you buy or sell. This page provides resources and checklists for both homebuyers and sellers to make informed decisions about electrical systems and potential repairs.

For Homebuyers:

Before you buy, it’s always a good idea to consult with a qualified professional regarding the home’s electrical system. Our trained eyes can often detect whether a home may contain improper electrical work, and by using our checklists we can help identify problems before you buy. We can help you make informed decisions and potentially help you to avoid costly electrical problems down the road.

For Home Sellers:

If you are selling your home, we can use the same checklists listed above for buyers. It may be in the best interest of both parties involved to know the extent of the repairs that may be needed and to get those repairs made prior to sale. Our inspection lists can help us identify problems and can aid in making decisions regarding if and what repairs might be made prior to sale.

Understanding Electrical Panel Upgrades

An electrical panel upgrade is needed when the existing panel is no longer able to handle the electrical demands of the home or when it is simply worn out. Worn panels and circuit breakers can lead to issues like nuisance tripping, flickering lights, power outages, power surges, and possibly even fire.

Upgrading or replacing a worn or damaged electrical panel can help prevent many of these problems from occurring and can help to ensure that your electrical system is safe and reliable. If you think you might need to replace your existing electrical panel, please feel free to give us a call. We can review your existing electrical panel or simply offer an estimate for a replacement.
