The Benefits of a Home Inspection
Whether you are buying or selling, a home inspection is a good value. It allows you to see the home through the eyes of a critical-third party. It helps set a realistic value to the property. It permits repairs to be made ahead of time, by yourself or a qualified contractor. It helps defects from becoming a stumbling block later on. It can reduce your liability by adding a professional supporting document to your disclosure statement. The inspection report can alert you to any safety issues there may be.

Our Promise to You:
Choosing the right home inspector can be a difficult process. Unlike most professionals, you will not get to meet us until after you have hired us. Also, different home inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the home inspector’s own effort. If we are contracted to inspect your home, We guarantee that we will give you our very best effort.
