Licensed and Insured, our goal is to provide our customers with peace of mind in the often stressful home-buying, or selling, experience.
Our goal is to be as thorough as possible so that you can have an accurate idea of the condition of your home.
What you should know.
Buying a home? The process can be stressful. A Home Inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but may seem to have the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often includes a written report, checklist, photographs, environmental reports and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller’s disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do?
Relax. Most of your Inspection Report will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:
Major defects, such as structural failure.
Things that lead to major defects, like a roof leak.
Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home. Fire, health or safety issues.
Safety hazards, such as a faulty electrical panel.
Items in these categories should be addressed either at time of sale or prior to occupying the home. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property.
Realize that the seller is under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the Inspection Report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter. It may be inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance items, conditions already listed on the seller’s disclosure or nit-picky items.
No home will "fail" an Inspection. The purpose of the Home Inspection is to educate you as to the condition of the Home. This applies to new homes with minor issues and to old Homes that may seem to be falling apart. It is important to keep things in the right perspective. Any Home is worth the price you are willing to pay, if you are well aware of its condition.
A Complete Inspection Includes: A visual, non-invasive, non-destructive inspection of all major systems and components of the Home. These include the Structure/Foundation, Roof, Plumbing, Electrical and Heating/Cooling Systems.
The Inspection Report created with pictures and a Summary page listing the specific recommendations for repairs and/or defects found during the Inspection will be emailed to you within 24 hours of your Inspection.
Our pricing is based off of age, square footage and other determining factors. Generally, most residential Home Inspections will cost between $350-$450.
