Comprehensive Home Inspection
This is considered the buyer's inspection and occurs after a buyer and seller are under contract. The inspector performs a visual examination of the readily-accessible areas of a home and provides an accurate evaluation of the home's condition at the time of inspection. The findings of the evaluation are presented to the buyer in a comprehensive electronic report so they are fully informed of the home's condition prior to purchase.
Sometimes in high pressure markets a seller makes the difficult decision to waive their right to an inspection when making an offer on a property. We will happily take the time to consult with new buyers and tailor a comprehensive inspection to suit your needs and help you get settled into your new home. After a top to bottom evaluation of the home the new owner then has the option of purchasing the full written electronic report for their records.
This consultation allows time for the inspector and potential buyer to walk through the property and outline any major visual concerns prior to the buyer making an offer on the home. This type of inspection is considered a verbal consultation and does not provide as in depth of information as a comprehensive home inspection and a written electronic report is not provided. Arrangements can be made for inspectors to return upon closing to provide a more in depth inspection if needed.
Pre-Listing Seller's Inspection
This inspection is similar to the comprehensive home inspection but the approach is a little bit different. Inspectors look for and report any major health, safety, and monetary concerns, but also highlight additional maintenance items and cosmetic concerns that a seller may want to address before placing a home on the market.
A maintenance consultation assists homeowners by providing insight into a home’s current condition to determine if and when repairs are needed and provides tips for how to set up an easy to follow maintenance plan. This review of the property and consultation may consist of observations related to critical components of the home but does not include a comprehensive written electronic report.
A pest inspection involves examining structure(s) and close surrounding areas for wood destroying organisms, their damage, or conditions conducive to their infestation. Wood destroying organisms include insects or fungi that will consume, excavate, develop in, or otherwise modify the integrity of wood or wood products.
