Buyer Home Inspections

Our goal is to provide home buyers and agents with inspection information that is accurate and easy to understand. The components and systems from the roof down to the foundation are inspected to visually identify any deficiencies. Our buyer home inspection services are designed to educate and provide valuable information about the condition of real estate before you make what could be a lifelong family investment.

Here’s what you get:

Structural and Mechanical Inspection - The structural and mechanical inspection includes a visual inspection of the foundation, plumbing, electrical, walls, doors and windows, attic, water heater, heating and cooling equipment, and ducting among other things.

Our inspection process includes a great deal of educational information about the condition of the following systems:

  • Roof, vents, flashings and trim

Listing Home Inspections or Seller Home Inspections

Real estate sales deals often fall through simply because the seller did not get a professional Seller Home Inspection to evaluate the condition of their home before putting it on the market. Eventually, potential buyers are going to hire an inspector prior to a sale. It is in the home seller's best interest to learn what an inspector would reveal to correct any possible issues in advance.
