Pest Inspection is an integral part of your FULL

WHEN DO I SCHEDULE AN
Typically, a home inspection is scheduled just
after an offer is accepted between a buyer and a
seller or buyer and the builder. It is your
responsibility to be informed -- sellers are not
always aware about potentially costly flaws, and
builders may have overlooked a few items. You
have the right to carefully examine your new
home with a qualified home inspector.
MAINTENANCE & PRE SALE
We can also inspect your home once a year to
identify problem areas as they arise prior to them
becoming a huge problem. This is especially
helpful when you are thinking about selling your
home, as we can identify issue(s) a buyers inspection
typically will reveal any ways. You can be proactive
in addressing them thus eliminating a slow closing
or worse,.. a deal gone bad.
