Who benefits from the inspection?

You do! You will know the condition of your home purchase and will save considerable heartache and expense by avoiding a “money pit”. You will also have a preventative maintenance “plan of action”. The seller and the real estate agents will avoid delays because problems, if any, are known up front. In addition, the liability on both parties is greatly reduced. This, of course, can prevent costly litigation and delay in closing.

We are very thorough

Our professional home inspection will identify conditions and problems and offer solutions and advice for repairs and replacements. The inspection is a visual examination and analysis of the physical structure and its mechanical components. We provide analysis and inspections of homes, condos, rentals and commercial properties for sellers, brokers, attorneys, and lending institutions.

This helps you know which areas need to be addressed immediately and which can wait. And, you receive the report at the end of the inspection!

We would like you there

Your inspection will be one of the most fascinating learning experiences of your life! By the time the inspection is done, you will most likely know the home better than the owner. We guide you through the home and educate you about each of its major systems and components. By accompanying us on the inspection, you also have the opportunity to ask questions and receive first hand answers.

Scheduling an inspection

Because timeliness is important, we can usually schedule your inspection within a few days of your call. And, we perform inspections six days a week.

5 things your home inspector can’t tell you about the house you’re buying

  1. How much it’s worth.
  2. Where the lot lines are.
  3. Whether the house is on town sewer or a cesspool.
  4. Where the flight path is.
  5. Who the neighbors are.

Seriously, you have some “homework” to do. While we make sure the house you buy will still be standing when you sell, you can concentrate on the more important stuff, like that odor coming from the neighbors back yard…
