Buying or Selling is an emotional time in a consumer’s life; affecting the largest purchase most of us ever make at a critical time. We will do a thorough, thoughtful overview of the condition of the property. Then you can make an educated decision when provided with sound information.

Buying (Pre-purchase Inspection) 

 My inspection is a thorough non invasive visual examination of a home’s: structural integrity, functionality and safety of the essential systems. I want you to follow along in an inspection so we can report findings and answer any questions you may have. It is my responsibility to provide any findings in a non alarming way so you can make your own educated decision.

 If you have any questions or concerns after an inspection, we are there to offer advice or support on any items or new problems which may develop. Our report provides you with a beautiful picture of your home on the day of inspection. The home inspection report is a computer generated  report that includes digital pictures, diagrams of relevant items and maintenance advice.

Selling (Pre-listing Inspection)

If you are selling; to a gain top dollar in this market requires the help of a real estate professional and I believe one approach to consider is a pre-listing inspection. If a Home Inspection is performed prior to the house being listed, all parties will be aware of the physical condition before an offer is drawn.  I understand the frustration caused by the seller and realtors when one of our pre-purchased inspections uncovers an unexpected issue. In many cases the issue is not one that should deter the buyer from proceeding. But if the buyer is having second thoughts, or if they are looking for a way to renegotiate the price, the inspection may give them this opportunity. A pre-listing inspection allows for you, the seller and the realtor to understand the condition of the home before listing. If any deficiencies are uncovered, you can decide to address the issues or not. If not the prospective buyers know that the listing price reflects the issues, they know the house has already had an inspection and it indicates the seller has nothing to hide.

Home Maintenance (Check-up Inspection)

Why should I consider a home checkup? That’s easy to answer; To keep your home in the best possible condition for safety and security reasons. I will perform a detailed inspection of your home or cottage from top to bottom, because you want to know what’s ok and what’s not. Finding problems early helps you preserve your property and doing preventive maintenance needed can extend the life of your equipment and materials, which generally proves to be less expensive than replacing these components. We want you to have a SAFE and SOUND Home. We will provide you with the Homeowner’s ‘’Home Check Checklists’’ along with our state-of-the-art web base reporting system. The report provides you with a beautiful picture of your home on the day of inspection.
