Why do I need a home inspection?
A home inspection is an important step in the home buying
process. Professionally trained home inspectors assist
in maintaining the health of your home and a property
inspection makes home maintenance easy by catching minor
problems before they become big projects. In just a few
hours you'll have a detailed report of the condition of
your home so you can plan for needed repairs and upgrades
when it's time to make them. When purchasing a home, many
homebuyers have saved literally thousands of dollars through
information provided by the home inspector. Homeowners
who have owned their homes for several years can even
benefit from a home inspector's knowledge of maintenance
and repairs, and experience to avert potential problems.
exactly would require a home inspection?
When buying a new home, new construction home or a preowned
home, you need an inspection for your peace of mind.
Sellers also benefit from home inspections by knowing
the condition of their home before listing. They are
spared the embarrassment of the buyer's home inspector
finding major defects with their home that they were
not aware of and possibly will hold up the real estate
transaction. If your new home still has a home warranty
through a builder it is smart to have a home inspection
before it expires.
checked this house out thoroughly myself, why do I need
Home Inspectors have the training, experience and competence
that comes with being in the industry and inspecting
hundreds of homes. We know what to look for and what
to look at. Considering the average home, there are
literally hundreds of items that should be inspected.
While you or someone you may know can examine the home
and roughly determine the overall condition of it, inspectors
inspect homes daily, each and every week throughout
the year and know exactly what to look for in a home.
We detect minor/major flaws, defects in workmanship,
proper installation and construction parameters and
unsafe conditions that the general public would miss.
makes you different from the local competition?
The industry is full of inspectors who neither have
the training, experience or qualifications to qualify
as a home inspector. A professional knows what to look
for and reports the condition to their clients in a
detailed report outlining the condition of the home
and provides insight to the buyer regarding the actual
condition of all the items in the home, so the buyer
can make an informed buying decision.
is the cost of a home inspection?
The cost of your inspection depends on the number of
bedrooms, age, and number of fixed AC units that serve
the home. Testing for radon and termite inspections
long does your inspection take?
Every home is different depending on the number of defects
observed, but the average time is 2 hours to inspect
the entire property and create a computer generated
large is the inspection report?
A completed inspection report is about 12 pages, the
more things found in the home that are deficient, the
more the report contains.
I be at the home inspection?
Yes, if it is possible, you should be there at the home
inspection. We recommend that you be present at your
home inspection so that you can ask your inspector any
questions and see first hand any areas needing maintenance
or repair. We would also like to show you where your
main utility shut offs are, the main electric, gas,
I call you for advice after the inspection?
Yes, feel free to call anytime.
