ADDITIONAL SERVICES

PRE-LISTING

Before selling your home, our inspector(s) will inspect the property to give you a better idea of your home's condition. This will help you avoid learning of unknown major/minor issues that will come to light during the buyer's inspection. Sales can fall through due to "inspection-shock", where unknown major issues are discovered.

We recommend scheduling your home inspection to allow enough time to repair or replace any items that do not pass inspection. We understand not all homeowners are able to make repairs identified during an inspection. We can help ensure your sell price is indicative of issues that will need to be addressed. Disclosing any issues upfront and pricing the home based on those findings will oftentimes produce a higher net sales result for the owner.
 

BUYERS INSPECTION

Buying a home is a stressful time.  Too often as home buyers, we get caught up in the beauty of the home or property overall. Thus, failing to think about what issues might be lurking that need to be addressed in the immediate future or down the road.

 

Our trained inspectors will focus on every aspect of the home that is visible to us.  We'll verify the systems and components that are used daily to assure they are in working order.  We'll be checking hundreds of items and making note of any that need to be serviced, replaced, or could be a future concern simply due to age.  All of this attention to detail will be delivered in a report that meets state and national requirements.

5-POINT INSPECTION

5-point inspections are perfect for homeowners needing some reassurance that major components of their home are in working order before listing. 

Systems included in a 5-point inspection include:​

Roof/Attic Space

HVAC

Plumbing

Electrical Panel

Foundation

Because these areas tend to be more costly to repair or replace, and often take more time to schedule,  having a 5-point inspection can reduce stress during the selling process. As well as saving time and money, homeowners will establish goodwill and trust with potential buyers. 

NEW CONSTRUCTION

New construction home inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk-through with the Builder's Customer Service Representative or Superintendent.

 

We recommend that you verify the utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder's policy.

The home inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk-through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last-minute items have been completed prior to your home inspection.

AGING IN PLACE

Aging in place describes a senior homeowner’s
ability to remain in the home to the fullest
extent possible by planning and implementing
modifications that promote safety, mobility,
security and functional use. 

Our inspectors will evaluate your at-home lifestyle and your mobility issues within the home, and assess your expected needs. We will then recommend corrections and adaptations to the home to improve your ease of performing daily routines.

COMMERCIAL

Commercial property is defined as the building structures and improvements located on a parcel of commercial real estate. These may include structures such as buildings with residential units operated for profit, mixed-use buildings, strip malls, motels, factories, storage facilities, restaurants, and office buildings.

 

Similar to a residential home inspection, a commercial inspection will give you a report on how the systems are running in the space you are wanting to call home for your business. Our inspectors will check all systems, the foundation, and the roof. Everything that would be checked in a residential home inspection.
