You or your real estate agent can schedule your home inspection. We will need to know the square feet and the type of foundation. Most homes are on a concrete slab foundation. Older, historical type homes have a pier and beam foundation that you can crawl under. Other questions we will ask are: Does the yard have a sprinkler system? Are there any swimming pools or hot tubs? Are there any other buildings on the property? Will you need a Termite (WDI) Inspection?
Since option periods are often short, we work with your schedule to find the best available appointment for you. We hope that you can be present for the home inspection so that your professional home inspector can go over the report with you in detail. Sometimes schedules do not allow the buyer to be present for the inspection. No worries. Since our reports contain photos of deficient items, you can read over the report and the inspector can discuss the report with you in detail at your convenience. We will notify the listing agent of the appointment. If there is a problem with the day or time that was chosen, then we can reschedule.
You, your real estate agent and the listing agent will receive an email confirmation of the appointment. Your email will have two links. One to pay with a credit card and one to sign our service agreement. If you do not have access to a computer, you can pay in person at the inspection with cash, check or credit card. The home inspector can print a copy of the service agreement for you to sign. If you want to pay with a check but cannot attend the inspection, then you can leave it with your real estate agent and we will make arrangements to pick it up.
Our home inspector has MLS lockbox access, which means the real estate agent does not have to be there to let him in. If the home is new construction we will work with the builder to gain access to the home.
Usually the seller is not at home when we do our home inspections. In some cases, for instance, if they have small children or an older person lives there, they may need to stay at the home. The inspector does not give any feedback about the home inspection to them unless there is a safety concern.
Based on the home inspector’s findings, your home inspector will give you his expert opinion about each component of the home that comes from continued training and years of experience.
You and your real estate agent will receive your home inspection report the same day via email, assuming the report has been paid for and the service agreement has been signed. If you were not able to attend the home inspection please read over the report and then call the home inspector to go over the report in detail.
Many real estate agents trust us to do inspections on their own homes they are buying or selling. On average, people stay in their homes 7 years. We have many repeat customers that have come back to use our services again.
We know you will be completely satisfied. And if you are not, we want to make it right! Please let us know how we are doing. We value your input.
If you ever have any questions about the home that we inspected please give us a call. We are here for you!
