“Being a first time home owner is I was very nervous if I don't get a good home inspector, I will always be thinking about if everything is alright with my house!! John did probably the most thorough inspection of the home even in 90 degree heat!! I feel like I got my money 100% worth. Wait!! The best part is his rates are very competitive as well. Inspector with work ethic like him is truly recommended by me. PS I don't do too many reviews but I though this is not only good for John's company but more importantly for 1st time nervous home buyers like me. Good luck John!”Ravi Gor

How We Can Help You
A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The Inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion, a report will be distributed to you.
New Construction Inspections
New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder’s Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder’s policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection, a completed report will be distributed to you.
Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections
Warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder Warranty. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection along with digital photos taken as needed for inaccessible areas.
Investment Property Inspections (Including Multi-Unit Housing)
Investment property inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following, for example, a long-term term tenant’s departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.
Seller Certified Home Program
Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are canceled due to the buyer’s shock at the “functional condition” of the home. It may look great but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner’s knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can’t make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based on that disclosure will often time produce a higher net sales price for the owner.
