Home Inspection Services
Buyer Pre-Closing Inspection
A buyer’s pre-closing inspection is done after the contract is accepted and during the inspection contingency time frame (normally 5-10 days). The focus is on major defects that could potentially cost the buyer a lot of money above the purchase price to repair. Areas checked during this thorough inspection typically include: the foundation, exterior, roof, interior, attic, crawlspace, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, appliances and more depending on the features of the home, i.e. fireplace, etc. After the inspection, the buyer will receive a comprehensive written and visual report of any defects and/or repairs needed.
Seller Pre-Listing Inspection
Our Move-In Certified Seller’s Inspection alerts sellers to any defects or problems with their home, so that they can address them before prospective buyers discover them. This allows the seller to take the time they need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Seller’s inspections show prospective buyers that the seller maintains the house, thus generating more interested buyers and avoiding 11th-hour negotiations and delays.
Builder’s Warranty Inspection
Typically completed one month before a 12-month builder’s warranty expires. We inspect in and around your home for any construction defects, items that may not be functioning properly, or any other issues that may be covered by the builder’s warranty.
New Home “Phase” Inspection
Also known as construction or phase inspections, they are invaluable for anyone who is looking to have a reliable and non-biased professional opinion regarding the quality and installation practices being utilized in their new home during each phase of the building process.
Single Area Inspection
Limited inspection of a single area or component such as electrical, plumbing, roof, HVAC, crawlspace, etc. Offered as an alternative, this focused inspection serves to address specific areas of concern.
Re-inspections by a non-biased inspector are recommended to ensure that problems or issues found during the initial home inspection have been properly repaired. In most cases, the seller is responsible for repairs, so it’s important to verify they used a professional (and when appropriate licensed) contractor and that repairs are safe and satisfactory.
