Buyer inspections, also known as pre-purchase inspections, are vital for anybody who is purchasing a home. Your home inspector will visually examine the readily accessible parts of the home and inspect all of the main systems, including the roof, foundation, electric, plumbing, HVAC, attic, ventilation, exterior, appliances, and more. It’s important to get a pre-purchase inspection so major problems can be fixed by the seller or otherwise negotiated prior to closing on the biggest purchase of your life.
You will receive a comprehensive report of what your inspector found during the inspection. These reports include defect summaries and photographs. Also, we include infrared scans on all home inspection packages!
