Pre Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspections for Future Sellers

We perform this inspection service to assist individuals and families who are selling a home. The inspection is similar to a typical Single Family Home Inspection, but needs to be scheduled before the listing is made. Pro-active improvements made before listing the property can prevent negotiations with prospective buyers from taking an unexpected and undesirable turn. We provide a full and accurate report of the property’s condition that you can use as a guide for making repairs or improvements. 

Multi Unit Inspection

Multi-Unit Building Inspections

This inspection is designed to assist investors who plan on purchasing a multi-unit building for rental or for renovation and resale. We inspect each unit separately, similarly to typical Condo Inspections, but also survey the elements which are commonly used by the building community. After an investigative evaluation of all visible and readily accessible areas through-out the property, we produce an extensive report that can be used as a guide for making repairs or improvements to the building or as an accounting of the salvageable aspects of the property in its current condition. We inspect the following unit components:

  • Interior Surfaces and Finishes
  • Visible Insulation, & Ventilation
  • In-Unit Systems and Appliances
  • Limited Common Elements
  • Execution of Previous Repairs

And the following building components are reported on:

  • Foundation, Crawl Space, Structural Components
  • Roofing System, Grading & Drainage
  • Exterior, Grounds and Vegetation
  • Common Interiors, Attic, Insulation, & Ventilation
  • Common Electrical, Plumbing and HVAC Systems

RE Inspection

Re-inspections:

If you’re nearing the end of the home-buying process and have negotiated the repair of existing defects noted on a previous inspection, you can have me return to perform a follow-up inspection that will assess and verify the completion of the requested work. We’ll carefully compare the state of the repair work against the defects-as-noted in a previously produced report, making sure that the repairs were performed correctly and that nothing was damaged in the process.

Developers Inspection

Developer’s Warranty Inspections

This one hour inspection is appropriate for a homeowner who is nearing the end of a warranty period provided by the development company that built the new, or newly renovated, home. We create a punch-list for repairs the developer should address in order to honor their warranty in good-faith. Owner/occupant complaints, finishing blemishes (like cracks and loose fittings) and the performance of the structure and installed equipment are all evaluated for faults which may be guaranteed against by the developer.

Report Reviews

Report Reviews

Should you or an interested party be unable to attend the completion of an inspections, due to health, safety or scheduling concerns, we can arrange a complimentary 45-minute call to fully review and discuss the findings of any report.
