About Home Inspections

You may be thinking, "why do I need a home inspection?"
Well, the answer is simple. If you are buying a home, you need a home inspection because
a home inspection gives the buyer more detailed information than an appraisal - information that you need to make an informed decision. I take an in-depth, unbiased look at your potential new home.

Another thing you may be wondering is, "what goes into a home inspection?" or "what does a home inspection entail?"
A home inspection gives the buyer an impartial, physical evaluation of the overall condition of the home and identifies items that need to be repaired or replaced. The inspection gives a detailed report on the condition of the structural components, exterior, roofing, plumbing, electrical, heating, insulation and ventilation, air conditioning, and interiors.
Please review my Analysis Report page for a more detailed overview of a home inspection.

Be an Informed Buyer
It is your responsibility to be an informed buyer. Be sure that what you buy is satisfactory in every respect. You have the right to carefully examine your potential new home with a qualified home inspector. You may arrange to do so before siging your contract, or may do so after siging the contract as long as your contract states that the sale of the home depends on the inspection.

Please refer to my F.A.Q. page for answers to additional questions about inspections.

The types of inspections I offer are Seller Representative Inspections (also known as "presale" inspections) and Buyer Representative Inspections. The presale inspection is a relatively new type of inspection. A presale inspection is conducted before you place your home on the market. If you are thinking about selling your home, consider a presale inspection. This is an effective way to prepare your home for the real estate market. Contract closures could be expedited, thus eliminating the possible need to negotiate lengthy repair addendums.
Of course, a Buyer Representative Inspection is one that I provide for the buyer. This is the more traditional type of inspection. If you are considering purchasing a home, you need the prospective property inspected. This protects your rights as a buyer and provides you with necessary information about the condition of the property.

I provide an analysis report for all inspections.
