Types of Inspections:

  • Pre-Purchase Inspection:  A professional pre-purchase inspection is performed for the potential buyer.  A systematic and thorough examination of all the homes systems and components may identify major defects before you buy.  The home inspection will also give you important information on items that will need maintenance to keep them in good condition.
  • Pre-Offer Inspection:  In a competitive real estate market buyers often want to get a striped down inspection prior to putting an offer on a home.  This is a faster inspection that does not include a written report but will give the buyer vital information regarding the condition of the home; so they can make an educated decision on what kind of offer to make on the property.
  • Pre-Listing Inspection:  A professional pre-listing inspection is performed for the seller of the property.  Defects unknown to the seller often lead to long delays and additional negotiations.  Taking care of these defects, or accurate disclosure, will lead to a faster more successful closing.
  • New Construction Home Inspection:  A home inspection of a newly constructed home will ensure the builder has not overlooked any details.  As with all home inspections you will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they created larger issues.
  • One Year Warranty Inspections:  Most builders provide a one year warranty for new construction.  It is prudent to have a professional home inspector perform a one year warranty inspection to develop a list of items to be repaired.
  • Owner Maintenance and Safety Inspection:  A check-up that provides peace of mind.  This is a systematic evaluation of the home’s system and components for the owner.  The inspection findings can be used to troubleshoot problems and develop a repair and maintenance strategy.
