GENERAL

 
website_logo_transparent_background.png

Purchasing a home could be the largest single investment you will ever make. To minimize unexpected repairs and difficulties, homebuyers should strive to learn as much as they can about the house before they buy it. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as future maintenance to keep it in good shape. Through our home inspection process, homebuyers will have a better understanding about their prospective house, which will allow them to make informed and confident decisions. If a homeowner is planning to sell their home, a pre-listing home inspection can offer them the opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in a better selling condition.

 

Whether a first time homebuyer or a seasoned homeowner, we will provide a thorough inspection and informative report. We use Spectora, an industry leading report writing software. It's intuitive, organized and easy to comprehend.  

 

We recommend our clients attend the inspection, which typically can take 2-4 hours for an average size single family home (times vary due to age and size). Understandably, not every client can attend the entire inspection. In that case, we ask that you join us near the end so we can discuss concerns or deficiencies we may have discovered. Also, this is an excellent time to ask questions you may have regarding the inspection or home.

 

After the inspection, feel free to contact us with additional questions that may arise while reading the inspection report. We are here to help...before, during and after the inspection!

What is a Home Inspection? 

A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. Home inspections are conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components.

Buyer's Inspection 

A Buyer's Inspection gives you a professional assessment of the structure and major systems of a home. It can help you identify issues you may have missed and help avoid possible surprises in the future. Above all, it can help you become a more informed homebuyer.

Pre-listing Inspection

Sellers may use a Pre-Listing Inspection as a way to streamline the sale process in hopes of closing faster. By having the opportunity to repair any major defects before listing, this may help you avoid a lengthy (and stressful) negotiation with your buyer and could prevent them from walking away over serious repair and maintenance issues. 

New Construction Inspection 

With so many people working on a new home and with so many components to the actual construction, mistakes can be made. This is why having a New Construction Inspection is so important. Now is the time to locate potentially costly defects and have them corrected by the builder not you, the homebuyer.

Radon Testing 

Radon is a radioactive gas that forms naturally when radioactive metals break down in rocks, soil and groundwater. You cannot see, smell or taste radon. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today after smoking. Having your home tested is the only effective way to determine whether you and your family are exposed to high levels of radon where further action to reduce radon levels is highly recommended.

Sewer Scope 

A sewer scope is an inspection of the sewer line. The inspection is conducted by a sewer scope technician, and is performed by inserting a mini camera and transmitter into the sewer line clean-out and observing and recording the condition of the sewer pipe from the house to the city main. Common obstructions can be invading tree roots, bellies and broken or clogged pipes.
