Additional Services

New Construction Inspections

New construction 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 inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before you final walk through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to you.

Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections

Warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder Warranty. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection along with digital photos taken as needed for inaccessible areas.

First Time Home Buyers’ Special

  • We know that buying a home can be stressful, especially if this is your first time buying a home, we can make it a little easier.
  • During the inspection we take as much time as it takes to answer all of your questions; both about the current state of the house as well as the proper ways to maintain it.
  • Our inspections include the home maintenance manual, Now that you’ve had a home inspection... so you can keep the house maintained right.
  • Once you’ve had the inspection, and future questions come up, feel free to call, even years down the road.
  • And of course our same day computer generated inspection report, with pictures so you can easily remember what was right with the house and what needs more work.

Investor Property Inspections

Includes Multi-Unit Housing

Investor property inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic 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.

Foreclosure Pre-Offer Evaluation

Some foreclosure sales do not allow for an inspection contingency to be written into the offer, all inspections must be made before the offer. As a buyer in this situation, you want to know about the big ticket items such as the roof, the foundation, and the furnace. Often times the plumbing system will sustain substantial damage from winterization and theft. This major discrepancy evaluation will quickly allow you to make an informed decision for your offer.

Seller Certified Home Program

(Pre-Listing Inspections)

Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are 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 inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the 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.
