Buyer Prospects

A New and Improved Way to Get Real Estate Data

Here’s a fantastic resource to verify the work on renovated properties.


It’s a familiar scenario: You have a client who falls in love with a newly renovated property, but you get the feeling that the quality isn’t quite there. What can you do to protect your client and ensure they’re getting a well-built property?

Head over to this website that was put together by the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs to provide consumers with some really great information. It includes any stop-work orders, which would be important to know about.

I recommend putting a property through this system before making an offer.

The site also contains information on permits for electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and the structure itself. It lets you know what’s been applied for and approved. It also lets you know about certificates of occupancy and anything that DCRA has been evolved with.

The site is completely free. I recommend putting a property through this system before you make an offer and after your inspection.

If you have any questions for me about this service or anything else related to real estate, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
