Buyer’s Home Inspection
(Prepurchase Home Inspection)

This inspection, which takes place prior to closing on a home, covers hundreds of components in the home and includes a written report and photos, clearly outlining the current condition of the home and any safety concerns. With this report, buyers will have all the information they need in order to make a fully-informed decision and prepare for future maintenance.

Most home builders offer a one-year warranty on the materials and workmanship of the home. Near the end of the warranty, we recommend an inspection to prepare a list of items to present to the contractor.

These customized inspections are completed for homeowners or construction lenders during the construction process. The home is inspected at various stages in the building process as part of the quality assurance process or to allow for the release of the next phase of funding.

Seller’s Home Inspection
