Home Buyer Inspections

Looking for a new home? We will walk through your soon-to-be new home with you and inspect all visible components of the structure. You will receive a digital report with our findings within 24 hours of your inspection.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Are you selling your home? Let us inspect your home and certify it as “move-in ready”. This not only puts buyers at ease, but also helps eliminate surprises when it comes time to close.

Annual Maintenance Inspections

Already settled in your home? Schedule an annual inspection to monitor your homes condition as it ages. Gain peace of mind having us provide an honest evaluation, as opposed to a pushy sales representative selling you things you don’t need.

Builder Warranty Inspections

Have you recently a purchased a new home? Most home builders offer a one year warranty. Make the most of the warranty by having us perform an inspection and generate a “punch list” for any items that may need to be corrected before the warranty expires.

Water Testing

Ensure your drinking water is safe by having us take a water sample while we are on site. Results are typically available within 3 business days.

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, Inspections Etc provides professional and quality service from the moment you call us. We offer services including home buyer inspections, pre-listing inspections, annual maintenance inspections, builder warranty inspections, or water testing – to ensure proper maintenance of your home – you can trust us to deliver excellent services. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by InterNACHI, the leading home inspection association.

After we walk through the home together, we will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report, that will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
