Our Home Inspector will review the detailed report with you to make sure you understand everything and answer any remaining questions.
A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The home inspector will test/look at over 400 items during the home inspection. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion a detailed home inspection report will be distributed to you.
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. It is always a good idea to verify that 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. At the conclusion of the home inspection the home inspector will deliver a completed report to you.

Investor property home inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase home inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic home inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant's departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.

Listing home inspections (pre-sale home inspections) are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. Sales are sometimes cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge. Having the home inspection prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Home Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.
