BUYERS / SELLER INSPECTION
This residential property inspection is a thorough visual assessment of a home’s readily accessible components. A detailed digital report of our findings will be available for the home buyer / seller to review within 24 hours of the completed inspection service.
We inspect these components:
Roofing System (including gutters, downspouts, & roof penetrations)
Foundation & Crawl Spaces
Exterior (doors, windows, cladding)
Driveways & Walkways
Grading & Drainage
Fireplace & Chimney
Deck & Balcony
Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
Attic, Ventilation, & Insulation
Heating & Air Conditioning Systems
ADDITIONAL INSPECTIONS AVAILABLE
When we conduct a Pre-Listing Inspection, our intention is to provide the seller of a home with a better understanding of what condition that home is currently in before a listing is created. This may lead to the discovery of defective areas that can be addressed before the home is shown in order to preserve the market value of the property.
It also gives home sellers a chance to ensure that negotiations progress smoothly by facilitating improved communication with prospective buyers.
NEW CONSTRUCTION / BUILDER WARRANTY INSPECTIONS
This inspection service will provide a detailed analysis of a newly constructed home’s strengths, weaknesses, and potential safety issues.
In order for the inspection to be effective, it should be scheduled before the builder’s final walkthrough—giving you enough time to arrange for necessary repairs to be made before you close on the property.
NEW CONSTRUCTION PHASE INSPECTIONS
Before a new home is officially evaluated, we can perform a series of phase inspections to ensure that there are no major defects that could prevent the home from passing the mandatory city inspection.
Typically, we’ll conduct an inspection 5-7 times throughout the construction process—checking for good material quality, safe building practices, and overall sound construction.
11th MONTH HOME INSPECTION
An 11th Month Warranty Inspection should be scheduled before your new home’s warranty expires—usually within the first year of ownership. We’ll thoroughly analyze the property’s readily accessible areas in an effort to discover potential deficiencies that were either overlooked or have only become problematic after construction was completed.
It’s important to schedule this inspection service due to the fact that specific repair work may be covered under your home’s warranty.
HOME MAINTENANCE INSPECTION
This inspection service will provide you with detailed insights into your home’s current maintenance issues—while also drawing your attention to areas of wear and tear that could necessitate routine maintenance in the months ahead.
We’ll thoroughly investigate the condition of each readily accessible area of the home, giving you a full report of our findings that will include specific recommendations for prioritizing the property’s maintenance needs.
For the inspection service, in lieu of a comprehensive evaluation of a home, we’ll focus on critical areas of the property. We’ll evaluate the electrical system, plumbing system, HVAC systems, and any other systems that are integral to the home’s capacity to serve as a safe and functional living space.
This service is not a substitute for a comprehensive Buyer’s Inspection.
POOL & SPA INSPECTIONS
Pool and Spa inspections include the visible (above water) pool and spa elements including assessment of the physical condition of accessible decking, coping, walkways and other surfaces. Exposed electric and plumbing components, the filter and heater if applicable.
Did the Buyer’s Inspection we performed for you result in an inspection report that included defective findings?
If you chose to request for the seller of the home to repair those defective areas of the property, we can conduct an additional inspection once that work has been completed to give you peace of mind with the state of the home before you proceed with a real estate transaction.
We’ll ensure that you have an intimate understanding of the home’s major components and overall condition, protecting you from financial pitfalls by giving you the confidence to invest on your own terms.
