Why Get A Home Inspection?

And necessary equipment

Most homebuyers lack the knowledge, skill and equipment needed to inspect homes themselves. They also may have an emotional attachment to the property that may lead to a bad decision. By using the services of a Home Inspector, they can gain a better understanding of the condition of the property.

In the details of inspecting a home

Often times I'll discover items that do not function the way they are supposed to or may even make it difficult for you to live in the home. I may also find items that require further investigation by a person who specializes in that particular item.

By exposing unforseen problems

A home inspection is an inexpensive way to discover the actual condition of a home. It is important to conduct a home inspection to avoid a costly mistake by purchasing a property in need of major repairs.

Knowing the conditon the home is in

A home inspection will definitely give buyers peace of mind that the home is in good shape, and can also become a negotiation tool in closing. Home Inspections may also assist sellers in setting a price and correcting any issues with the home before it is put on the market.

How I work

I find any issues or potential problems with the property you are looking to purchase. They vary from the major (Foundation, HVAC, Roof problems & more) to the minor ones (Leaks, Broken outlets, Missing smoke detectors & more) and everything in between. I will detail all the issues in a reader-friendly report, emailed to you within 24 hours (most times the same day) so that you can easily evaluate your further purchase.
