Buyers Home Inspection Services

Pre-Listing Inspection

Sell your home with greater confidence in the value that you’re getting by having the property inspected before you make the listing. Not only does this give you a chance to make recommended improvements and repairs, but it also enables you to keep the prospective buyer fully and truthfully informed so that negotiations are unlikely to take a downward turn.

Maintenance Home Inspection Services

Home Maintenance Inspection

Routine home maintenance is what will keep your living space safe, enjoyable, and fairly valued. We can help you stay on track by thoroughly inspecting the home on an annual basis to assess the ongoing maintenance needs. We’ll report extensively on our findings, helping you prioritize the improvements that need to be taken care of—while also providing guidance on how to go about getting the job done right!

4 Point Home Inspection Services

4 Point Inspection

In order to obtain insurance for your prospective home, it will likely need to meet minimum property standards. In this circumstance, a 4 Point Inspection will usually be recommended. We’re happy to offer this inspection service, comprehensively inspecting four of the most important systems that make up a home—the roofing system, HVAC system, plumbing system, and electrical system.

Re Inspection Services


Once the seller of your prospective home has arranged the repairs and improvements that you requested, it’s important to have the home inspected again to ensure that the work was done correctly. This is a limited-scope inspection service that will focus on the areas of the home that were directly involved in the repair work.

Renters Home Inspection Services

Renters Inspections

This inspection service is a fantastic way to help the landlord and tenant remain on the same page throughout the rental period, fostering trust and building a good relationship. We can perform the inspection before the lease is signed so that there is documented proof of the property’s condition. You can then have us return periodically for follow-up inspections to make sure that the tenant hasn’t damaged the property, and to keep track of normal wear and tear.

Investment Home Inspection Services

Investment Property Inspections

Before you follow through with the acquisition of an investment property, you should have it professionally inspected to ensure that it’s safe for occupancy and that you’re aware of existing issues.
