We Promise Results!

Essel performs Property Conditions Assessments and Property Condition Reports for commercial real estate lenders and real estate investors throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Western United States. Our PCA process consists of a thorough inspection of the building’s structure and systems. For larger buildings, a general rule of thumb is to view 10 percent of the building; however, depending on the structure, floor plan and building systems, this may not be enough to afford a representative picture. The report will include a narrative summary of the building type and condition, and cost tables of the immediate and long-term expenses of the building maintenance.
