Since inspections tend to be lengthy, many clients will typically attend toward the end of the inspection so that we can run through any items of note and answer questions.
A thorough, quality inspection should never be rushed and will take between three and six hours to complete, depending on the size of the home.
In most cases you will receive the report the next day.
We are always available and accessible to our clients. You can call or text any time after you've received your report to discuss any questions or concerns you might have.
We ask for payment in full prior to the inspection date. Once you schedule your inspection, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to make the payment.
Conducting a pre-listing home inspection is a great way to understand any conditions and possible defects that may be discovered by a buyer's inspector, providing you with a competitive advantage. By knowing about these items ahead of time, you can address them up front and either factor them into the asking price or remediate them prior to listing.
