Pre-Closing / Sale Inspection

 

When buying a home, you should always have a professional home inspection performed. You need to know exactly what you are getting. The professional home inspection will reveal any hidden problems with the home so that they may be addressed before you close the deal. This makes your buying decision much easier and gives you greater confidence moving ahead with the deal.


Pre-Listing Inspection

 

When considering to sell your home it is helpful to know what you should repair or upgrade to get the best possible price and appraisal for your home. A professional home inspection will give you the confidence to negotiate the sale from a position of strength.


Post-Remodel Inspection 

A post-remodeling home inspection is an important part of smart home ownership. This is especially true if you’ve recently undertaken a major addition or remodel. Even if you’ve hired a professional to do the work, having the work checked before the project is completed and paid for is ideal. This will avoid any surprises when you decide to sell. In addition the inspection will reveal and potential safety concerns.
