Buyer's Inspection

Our standard inspection for residential homes involves a comprehensive assessment of the property’s visible and readily accessible features. We will review the detailed report with you to make sure you understand everything and answer any remaining questions. A detailed inspection report is sent out the same day of the inspection so that you can proceed with the next step in the home-buying process as quickly as possible.

Pre-Listing Inspection

This inspection should take place before you put your home up for sale. We’ll carefully inspect the readily accessible areas of the property to determine whether or not there are existing defects you need to know about. If you choose to make repairs, this will give you a chance to do so before a prospective buyer’s own inspection so that the home’s value is protected.

New Construction Inspections

Home buyers sometimes incorrectly assume that newly constructed homes don’t need to be inspected before a transaction takes place. But you should know that this isn’t the case—a professional third-party home inspection is necessary to check for defects and general oversights in the home’s construction. New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through of the home.  If defects are discovered, this will give you a chance to discuss the matter with the builders before closing on the home.

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Most builders offer a one-year warranty on new homes. This is a tremendous asset for new homeowners as it allows you to have possible deficiencies corrected while the home is still under warranty—potentially saving you big-time money! This inspection is a thorough examination of the home that seeks to reveal defects that have occured since your move-in or that were overlooked when the real estate transaction initially took place.

Re-Inspections

Re-Inspections give home buyers an opportunity to double-check the condition of a previously defective component that has been repaired or replaced. If we discover additional issues during the inspection, you will still have time to reach out to the seller of the home before the transaction is final.
