A full-service inspection package for homebuyers. I’ll inspect the structure, systems and components of your home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof. I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions. I will compile my findings in a detailed report that will include detailed descriptions and digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. My job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.
This is tailored to real estate investors who may make offers on multiple homes. This form of inspection is conducted using exactly the same standard of practice as Pre-Purchase Inspections. Photographic documentation is employed but without the written report or a Buy Back Warranty. You are provided with a full verbal overview detailing the present condition of the home. If you require a written report then this can be produced for an additional cost.
You may have now owned your home for several years but homes always require maintenance. Let me help you keep your home in top shape and protect your family’s home for years to come. I can conduct a thorough inspection of your home and advise you whether you have any deferred maintenance that needs to be addressed. I can also advise you on what maintenance is required on your home and help you establish a maintenance schedule based on your budget.
This is ideal if you're having a new home built. Many people think that new homes don't need to be inspected but that's rarely the case. New homes are built to building codes but please understand that these are just minimum standards that homes should be constructed to; anything less is essentially illegal. Building codes are not a guarantee that “best practices” have been used when constructing the house. Local building officials will check on the construction but they are generally overworked and don't often have as much time as they would like to inspect a new house.
A home inspection will give you the benefit of a third party looking at the house in order to evaluate the overall quality and design of the building. It will also provide you with an understanding of what maintenance it will require. You will receive a helpful punch list of small repair items, and occasionally, significant problems are uncovered that may save you money and future headaches.
If you have already purchased a new home that is less than a year old then you may wish to consider having a builders warranty inspection conducted. Generally a Builders warranty is valid for twelve months so it is advisable to have it inspected at the eleven month point. In fact, many builders will encourage you to have an inspection at some point in owning the home as some issues just don’t present themselves until the home has been lived in for a while. I can conduct this form of inspection so you can submit a report to your builder for repairs.
This is similar to a pre-purchase inspection but the focus is a little more narrow and is optimized for renters rather than home owners. I can inspect your rental property upon your move-in to document its condition and record any issues that it has. By doing this at the front end of your occupancy helps avoid any disputes with your landlord upon your move-out.
This video explains a little more about what to expect. But it's important that you relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies for various systems and components, and minor imperfections. These are useful to know about. But what is important is understanding if the home has any material defects or safety issues.
