Home Inspection Details

Why Get a Home Inspection

Our job as home inspectors is to provide our clients with an unbiased opinion of a house.  We are not building code inspectors or enforcers, even though most Home Inspectors know a lot about local building code.   A home inspection will cost you a little bit of time and money, but in the long run, you’ll be glad you did it.  The inspection can help reveal problems that you may be able to get the current owners to fix before you move in.  The home inspection can also help prevent you from inadvertently buying a money pit.
