Looking at a multi-family investment property, downsizing to a townhome or have you just found your first single-family home? We've got you covered. From single family homes, manufactured homes, multi-family residences and even condominiums and townhomes, we inspect them all!
Our single-family residential home inspections start around $350 and are determined on size and age of the home. Older homes and larger properties will increase the cost of the inspection.
Multi-family homes are similar to single-family but are also based on the number of units. Call us if you need a quote.
Townhomes and condominiums are similar to single-family homes and are based on size and age of the property.
Mobile home inspections are based on size and age of home along with the crawlspace type.
Pre-Listing home inspections are beneficial to a seller. Know the condition of your home prior to the buyer's inspection.
Home maintenance inspections enable the homeowner to gain an understanding of the overall condition of their home and address the issues to prolong the life of each system and component
Certain items are not included in a general home inspection. Below are items that may be added to your home inspection order. If you don't see an item and wish to have that item added, please let us know. We would be more than happy to provide you with a quote!
Smaller sheds (less than 10'X10') can be inspected during your home inspection. If you would like your shed inspected, you can add this service to your order.
Detached garages can be added to your home inspection. Garage sizes are up to 2 vehicles. Anything larger would be a Workshop/Barn add-on.
Workshops & Barns are a common structure in our region. If you have a small barn or workshop (under 25'X25') and would like to have it inspected, just add it to your inspection order.
What Is A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a comprehensive, non-invasive and visual inspection of a home's exterior and interior components. Your inspector will evaluate the condition of 100+ different components on your property.
Why Should I Get A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is an integral part of your home purchase. This may be the largest investment you will ever make throughout your life, why wouldn't you want to know the homes condition? Much of the stress associated with your home-buying experience is not knowing if you're making a sound financial decision. Many homeowners quickly realize after they move in to their dream home, that it is more of a nightmare. Discovering many safety issues or defects after moving into your home means that the repairs and costs associated with the defective components are now your responsibility.
Often times, this leads to "buyers regret" and sometimes even financial failures. If you had purchased a home inspection (typically costing less than .1% of your purchase price) these defects would more than likely have been discovered and possibly fixed by the homeowner or sellers.
