What is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a professional, objective, comprehensive visual examination of all the systems and physical structural elements of a home, from the roof to the foundation. Our emphasis is on identifying existing or potential problems that would affect a purchasers buying decision.
Why do I need a Home Inspection?
Buying a home could be the largest single investment you will ever make. A thorough home inspection can help you avoid costly surprise repairs and problems with your new home. Our Inspection report will also advise you of what maintenance is required to keep your home in top condition.
If you are selling your home, a listing inspection will point out any potential problems that might be uncovered later by the buyer’s inspector. Finding them early will allow you to address them before listing your home, making for a faster and smoother sale.
How much does a Home Inspection cost?
Inspection fees for a home inspection are primarily based on size, age, foundation type, location, and any supplementary services requested. Do not let cost be the only factor in deciding whether or not to have a home inspection or in the selection of your home inspector. The sense of security gained from a knowledgeable and experienced inspector is well worth the cost, and the lowest-priced inspection is not necessarily a bargain.
Does a newly constructed home need an Inspection?
A professional inspection of a new home is very important. We can spot potential problems early, while they are still easy to correct. As building professionals, we may find problem areas where the builder has taken shortcuts or not done proper work.
We were extremely pleased with the home inspection that you provided to us. Thanks for being so thorough and taking the time to answer all our questions.
Sincerely, Amy and James Parker
