Buyer’s inspections are the most common type of inspection. The persons purchasing the property hire an inspector to help identify major defects and other problems so they can make an informed decision about the building's condition.
Did you forgo the inspection to get your offer accepted? Then this inspection is for you! This is the same as a buyer's inspection and you'll learn about the property so you can prioratize repairs and learn how to maintain your new home. Feel free to hang out with us during the inspection, ask questions...that's why we're here.
A homeowner who is selling their house hires an inspector to identify problems with their house. The seller shares the report with any potential buyers or make any necessary repairs so the house is known to be in good condition, encouraging a quick sale.
The pre-delivery inspection applies to brand new homes. (Yes, you should have your new home inspected. See our New Home Sample Report to see why.) These inspections take place up to a week before a closing and they allow buyers the opportunity to inspect their new home. Additionally, the inspection is to ensure that the home is substantially completed, and major items are in working order. We'll also verify that the siding, shingles and HVAC systems are installed to the manufacturer's specifications so as not to void their warrantees.
We specialize in historic home inspections. The majority of the homes we inspect are over 100 years old. Here is a Historic Home Sample Report from an actual inspection we've performed.
(One year warranty inspection)
An 11th month inspection is an inspection of a home less than one year old, before the builder's warranty ends, to discover any defects requiring warranty service.
Basically, the same as a home buyer's inspection, but for duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes.
This type of inspection is not for real estate transactions, and you must currently own the property. You pick the system, roof, siding, windows, furnace, air conditioning, deck, etc. We'll provide you with a written report, including pictures of its current condition and any recommendations we may have.
