It feels good to know what you are really buying, even if you do not plan on asking the seller for any concessions. A thorough inspection helps you to feel confident about the investment you are making and helps to prepare you for what could have otherwise been unexpected expenses. Sellers can reduce liability and avoid surprises by have their home inspected prior to listing.
WHAT TYPES OF HOME INSPECTIONS DO YOU OFFER?
From condos to estates we help provide you the information you need to be an informed buyer. If you are a first time home buyer, we will take extra time to explain a home’s systems and to provide maintenance tips.
Avoid surprises and closing delays and reduce your liability by having your home thoroughly inspected prior to putting it on the market. This inspection is slightly different from our buyers inspection. Contact Us for details.
Even brand new homes are not perfect. Stop problems before they start with a new construction home inspection. Pre-Drywall, Pre-Closing and 11-Month Warranty inspections are available.
