  2. Services

Before you purchase a home, it's important to have it inspected by a TREC licensed professional. The inspection provides the basis to make a well-informed decision to continue with the purchase of the home or enables you to make the right decision for your future and back away from the sale.

Re-sale Inspection

Inspection of newer residential properties. This is an Inspection of the major systems and significant components of a previously occupied house, conducted for the buyer. The inspection takes 2 ½ to 4 hours depending on the size and age of the property to be inspected. The home inspection fee is based on the size of the heated and cooled (conditioned) square footage of the property inspected.

Builder Warranty Documentation

This type home inspection documents warranty issues to the builder before the 12 month anniversary date. The time allotted to complete a warranty home inspection can range from 2 ½ to 4 hours depending on the size of the property to be inspected.

Pre-Listing Inspection

The precautionary step of having an inspection done before listing, eliminates surprises that could cause your buyer to talk away from the sale and prevent renegotiating after the offer is accepted. A Pre-listing inspection gives you time to address major repairs before an offer is made and you might pay less for them if done in advance. Even if you offer to fix a problem on the report, the home might not look as appealing to skittish buyers.

Repair Verification

This is a follow-up inspection to confirm that any issues observed have been correctly resolved. We strongly recommend a follow up inspection if the work is not performed by a licensed contractor, or if the list of items to be repaired is extensive.

Wood Destroying Insect Infestation

Typically, your mortgage lender will require that a wood destroying insect infestation (Termites, Wood Boring Beetles, and Wood-Attacking Ants) inspection is conducted on the home you are purchasing. This will insure that it does not have an active infestation or major structural damage from wood destroying insects.

Swimming Pool and Spa

This is a visual inspection from the water’s edge above the water line and readily accessible components of the pool, and permanently attached equipment. Note that it is impossible to detect underground plumbing that may be leaking. The pool body, deck surface, electrical fixtures, above ground plumbing is visually inspected and pump equipment functionality is tested. Area access Security fences, gates, controls and appropriate electrical bonding.

Annual Maintenance

Specifically tailored for special needs of investors. We are trained to identify problems in their early stages, before they cause extensive damage requiring expensive repair solutions. The parts of any house will wear out, break down, deteriorate, leak, or simply stop working. An Annual Home Maintenance Inspection will help you keep your investment in good condition and prevent it serious, long-term and expensive damage from minor issues.

Closing Walk-through

The closing walkthrough also known as the pre-settlement walkthrough for new construction typically take places several days before closing. It’s wise to go into this inspection with an eagle eye inspector, because cosmetic items will not be covered by your warranty. Remember that any items that need attention must be noted in writing on a checklist, or punch list. It’s better to fix small things now, before they become bigger, more expensive problems.
