Buyer’s Inspection

A buyer’s home inspection is a thorough examination of a property, to assess the condition of the home and identify any potential issues or defects. The inspection includes a review of the home’s major systems and components, such as the electrical and plumbing systems, the roof, the foundation, and the structure of the home. The inspector will also check for any visible signs of damage or wear and tear, and will document any issues or concerns in a written report. The report is provided to the buyer within 24 hours of the inspection, who can then use it to make an informed decision about whether to proceed with the purchase or to renegotiate the terms of the sale.

Pre-Listing Inspection

A pre-listing home inspection is conducted before a property is put on the market for sale. This can help the seller to address any problems before potential buyers see them, and can also provide valuable information to help the seller price the property more accurately. A pre-listing inspection provides the seller with a sense of security that they are not hiding any major issues that could impact the sale of the home, which can also help to build trust with potential buyers.

New Construction Inspection

Having a new construction home inspection done is important because it can help to identify any issues or defects that may have occurred during the construction process and that would not be noticed by the homeowner. This can include hidden structural defects, faulty electrical wiring, and improper installation of appliances and fixtures. Identifying these issues before taking possession of the home can allow the builder to correct them before the homeowner moves in, helping to ensure that the home is safe and in good condition.
