Following are some answers to the most common questions, however feel free to call or email us with any questions or concerns.
What is the process for home inspections?
First, you need to make an appointment either by phone or email. Then notify your realtor and he or she will arrange with the other party for availability. On the day of the inspection, the inspector will arrive at the property and start the inspection. After the inspection is complete, the inspector will do a walk-through with you and explain the items that require attention. Then payment will be taken on site. A detailed and thorough inspection report will be emailed to you within 24 hours following the inspection.
What’s a pre-inspection agreement?
A pre-inspection agreement is the contract for the inspection and discusses the inspection process, limitations and exclusions, and the standards of practice to which the inspector is inspecting. These agreements are required by insurance companies and will need to be signed prior to the inspection.
How long does a home inspection take?
Inspection times vary based on the size and age of a home but they typically take around 2 hours. We suggest that you follow the inspector as he inspects your new home and explains his findings.
How can I pay for the inspection?
We accept cash, check, or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express) at the time of the inspection. If you can not attend the inspection, you will need to give us a credit card number over the phone.
Do Utilities need to be turned on-Water, Electric?
In order to perform an inspection we will need both water and electric turned on at the time of the inspection. If you are purchasing a HUD home or foreclosure and this is not possible, please contact us to discuss the limitations.
