The whole house inspection I perform for you will be of the most complete and in-depth available in the Home Inspection Industry today.
Depending on the size & condition of the structure, my home inspections on average take between 2 and 3 hours to complete.
The Inspection I perform for you will consist of inspecting, on average, more than 120 different inspection points.
Items & systems are inspected for condition, serviceability, functionality and operation.
I strongly recommend that you attend the inspection if at all possible:
Although, many of my clients are from out of state & I have performed inspections for clients outside the country. So if you are unable to attend the inspection for one reason or another, the report you will receive will be very clear and easy to understand. And if you are not quite sure of something, I will always be here to answer any questions or concerns you might have. Don't worry - Relax:
I understand that the purchase of a new home can be a very stressful situation for some. Not only will I point out discrepancies found but I will also teach you a whole lot about your new home.
Every house has issues. Most issues are standard, deferred maintenance issues. But there are the few that have major discrepancies. Not only will you be informed of these issues in a clear & understanding way, I will explain to you the difference between the two.
Don't let standard maintenance issues stand in the way of you getting your dream home. Anything can be fixed.
The question is, at what cost.
After I inspect your prospective new home you will have gained the knowledge you need to give you complete confidence to proceed forward with your Real Estate transaction. This you can be assured of.
YOU AND YOUR REALTOR WILL BOTH RECEIVE AN ELECTRONIC INSPECTION REPORT THE SAME DAY AS THE INSPECTION (in most cases) !
The Home Inspection Report that I deliver is second to none.
I use the Home Inspection Industries leading software to produce the most complete & comprehensive Inspection Report available in the Industry today.
I won’t give you a carbon copy of a report or a report with check marks and a grading system that can be confusing & misleading. When it comes to negotiating discrepancies discovered during the inspection, if you can't read or understand the report. Does it really matter if you had the best Inspector in the country?
If you are selling a home a Pre-sale inspection is strongly advised. It is a proven fact that homes with pre-sale inspections sell much faster than homes without. Your Inspection Report will be a very powerful tool to help you sell your home.
Beware of onsite reports:
I do not deliver or believe in onsite reports. As with every home inspection I perform, extreme care and pride goes into every inspection report I produce. It takes me on average between 1 1/2 to 2 hours to prepare every report after the inspection.The couple of extra hours it will take you to receive your report will be well worth your wait.
I guarantee that you will be just as impressed with your report as you will with your inspection.
A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS:
You’ve heard the phrase,“ A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS”, Well, It’s true, a picture is worth a thousand words, Especially when it comes to understanding discrepancies found with your multi-thousand dollar investment.Your home inspection report will have digital pictures along with a color coded detailed description NEXT TO any items at issue.
Same Day Reports:
All of my Inspection reports are emailed to you and your Realtor the same day as the home inspection (Most Cases). This way you and your Realtor can go over the inspection report from the comfort of your own homes and get the ball rolling on any issues that may require further negotiations.
At your request, reports may also printed with a color laser-jet printer for the highest possible quality report and put into a high quality transparent cover and sent to you via USPS.
Home Inspections reports may also be burned onto a compact disc, in color ( at your request)
Your home inspection report will have a wealth of information about your new home in it. This is a document you will want to save for future reference.
