Pre Listing Home Inspection Services

Pre-Listing Inspection

This inspection service facilitates a smoother real estate transaction for clients who are attempting to sell a home. We’ll carefully inspect the readily accessible areas of the property to identify potential repair and maintenance needs. Whether you decide to address maintenance issues yourself before you make your listing, or you share the information with prospective buyers, you’ll stand a better chance of reaching a successful outcome to negotiations by keeping the process honest.

Buyers Pre Offer Inspection

Buyer’s Pre-Offer Home Evaluation

This inspection service is a limited-scope evaluation of a home that is designed for clients who don’t have time to schedule a full home inspection—generally due to competing bids that could cause you to miss out on a promising investment. Over the course of a hour, we’ll evaluate some of the home’s most critical components so that you have a better idea of what you may be walking into. Because a written report is not included with this inspection, note-taking is encouraged.

Commercial Inspection

Commercial Property Inspection

We offer comprehensive inspections of commercial buildings that will identify potential defects, giving prospective investors a better idea of what to expect in terms of repair and maintenance requirements. We’re able to inspect: small strip malls, apartment buildings up to 30 units, mixed-use facilities, restaurants, and office buildings ranging from 20,000-35,000 sq. ft. that are no taller than 7 stories.

New Construction Inspection

New Construction Inspection

When a new home is built, it’s a good idea for the buyer to schedule this inspection before the builder’s final walkthrough of the property. We’ll thoroughly investigate the condition of the property, informing you of any defects so that you can communicate the information with the builder before the construction phase is officially completed.

Radon Inspection

Radon Testing

After tobacco use, radon exposure is the primary cause of lung cancer. Radon gas forms naturally beneath the Earth’s surface, and over time, the gas is released into the atmosphere. During this transition, radon can sometimes penetrate the structure of homes—where it becomes an invisible and odorless threat to the health of residents. We recommend that all prospective homebuyers schedule a radon test before agreeing to terms.

WDO Termite Inspection

Wood Boring Insect Reporting

This inspection service will evaluate a home for damage caused by wood-boring insects such as termites, powder post beetles, carpenter ants, and carpenter bees. These insects are more than just a nuisance—they cause significant structural damage that can cost new homeowners thousands.

Water Testing

Water Quality Testing

For this inspection service, we’ll test a home’s water quality by collecting samples from the well that will be sent off for analysis at a local laboratory. The analysis will test for a wide number of potential contaminants, including heavy metals and radon.
