5 Reasons To Use Our Property Condition Assessment Services

Property condition assessment services are a critical component of commercial real estate due diligence. However, not all of these services are created equal. Some services, such as those offered by RSB Environmental, provide more value for your clients.

If you need to book a property condition assessment (PCA) for a piece of property in a real estate deal, we have the team for the job.

What Separates Our Property Condition Assessment Services?

Here are 5 good reasons you can trust our company to complete the PCA according to your timeline and need.

1. We Have Conducted Over 5,000 Assessments

There is no substitute for experience, and we have more practice than most assessors. RSB Environmental has performed more than 5,000 assessments. Each one was completed in accordance with the latest standards, such as ASTM e2018 (Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments).

A large number of these assessments were performed in our home state of Texas, but we have helped clients across the country. No matter where the property is located in the Continental U.S., we can perform the assessment.

All of this experience means that we know just what to look for. We have assessed properties like:

  • Hotels
  • Apartments
  • Retirement communities
  • Industrial facilities
  • Factories
  • Production Sites

As a result, our team is well equipped to assist with any condition assessment. We can inspect properties of all kinds thoroughly and efficiently. This aptitude means that you can confidently move forward with deals, knowing that you have access to important site condition data.

2. Our Team Includes Licensed Engineers

Did you know that a condition assessment does not have to be performed by engineers? Seems strange right? We think so, too.

However, some assessors do not use engineers because doing so costs them extra money. While these assessments can still provide important insights, they are not as thorough. This approach means that key issues might be overlooked. That can spell bad news for your client.

Fortunately, you can avoid this headache with RSB Environmental. All of our assessment teams include licensed engineers.

  • Our engineers can closely examine the structural and functional facets of your property.
  • They can uncover vital issues or concerns that impact property usability.

So why settle for a subpar assessment? The answer is that you shouldn’t. Instead, reach out to RSB Environmental and let us help with your assessment needs.

3. We Can Find Big Ticket Items

The whole purpose of an assessment is to uncover key maintenance and repair issues. These big ticket items can cost your clients thousands or millions of dollars if not uncovered. Therefore, you need to hire a reputable assessor like RSB Environmental.

We have a history of finding high-priority issues. Some of the systems we inspect include:

  • Roofs
  • Electrical infrastructure
  • HVAC systems
  • Plumbing
  • Parking lots
  • Gutters
  • Windows

If any of these systems are in disrepair, we will find out about it. But we don’t stop there. We also provide estimates on repairs. These projections allow your clients to make informed buying decisions. You can also use our reports to adjust bids and justify making a lower offer.

4. RSB Environmental Offers Fast Turnarounds

Typical due diligence periods only last 30 days. This limit means you have to act fast to assess a subject property. Otherwise, you will need to request an extension from the seller. As you know, asking for an extension can create undue friction. It may cause you to lose the deal entirely.

We help you keep your deals on track by offering fast turnarounds. Most property condition assessors take 4-6 weeks to complete a report. Talk about being in a time crunch. However, we can complete PCAs in just 5-7 days nationwide. This speed gives you time to:

  • Review our findings
  • Renegotiate price
  • Obtain repair bids
  • Submit new offers
  • Schedule additional inspections

Speaking of additional inspections, we also offer package deals. We can book your PCA and environmental site assessments (ESAs) during a single consultation. This set-up ensures all of your due diligence is complete within the 30-day window.

5. We Provide Detailed Reports

We pride ourselves on providing clients with extremely detailed reports. Our team documents all of our findings and provides a breakdown of any concerns we have. This approach helps you and your clients quickly digest the information in our reports.

To date, our reports have helped clients close more than $1 billion in real estate deals. Our clients frequently praise us for our attention to detail and rapid response times. When time and accuracy matter, RSB Environmental is the only choice for your PCA needs.
