You may have asked yourself: Why do I need a home inspection? How will I benefit from this?

A home inspection is a visual diagnosis of the current condition of a property. Knowing the condition of a property's major systems and it's structural components can be a powerful tool. As the seller, this knowledge can help you identify the areas of your property that need attention prior to listing and can help you determine a fair selling price. As the buyer, it can help you avoid costly surprises down the road and may also be used as a negotiating tool that could possibly facilitate a reduction in the price of a property. By obtaining a professional home inspection you can be reassured that you are making a sound investment.

I'm a pretty handy person, couldn't I perform the inspection myself?

Even the most experienced homeowner/handyman can miss potentially costly problems that a licensed and Certified Home Inspection Professional will not miss.

How long will the inspection take?

Clients are encouraged to be present during the inspection process so the home inspector can answer any questions you may have and also tell you about routine maintenance that should be performed. The inspection will typically last 2 to 3 hours depending on the age, condition, and square footage of the property.
