Frequently Asked Questions

Who Exactly Would Require A Home Inspection?

When buying a new home, new construction home or a pre-owned 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.

I’ve been in this home for years. How will a Home Inspection benefit me?

Homeowners who have owned their homes for several years do benefit from a home inspector's knowledge of maintenance and repairs, and experience and can offer a different perspective. You can also benefit by learning about new technologies or how your home can be improved by “Age In Place” modifications/adaptations.

How Long Does Your Inspection Take?

Every home is different depending on the number of defects observed, but the average time is 2 to 3 hours to inspect the entire property.

What Makes Us 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.

Why Do I Need a Pre-Purchase 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 problems.

In just a few hours you'll have a detailed report of the condition of your home so that 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.

Should 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.

What 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 are additional.

Can I Call You For Advice After The Inspection?

Yes, feel free to call anytime.
