The Importance of an Inspection
Not all real estate transactions require an inspection, but it’s just good sense to become an informed investor. Buying property without knowing it well is an expensive dice roll, which makes the property inspection an invaluable step to remove uncertainty and reduce risk when evaluating a potential purchase. The cost of an inspection is minor compared to the knowledge you gain, which is why a property inspection can have a huge rate of return – whether you find a large defect that can lead to better negotiations (for you), or you find the property is in great shape. An inspection is worth the peace of mind. Scroll to read about our suite of inspection services.

By scheduling a Pre-Listing Inspection, home sellers allow themselves the opportunity to repair issues in the home before a potential buyer finds them first. Repairing issues before listing can increase a seller’s negotiating power and makes the home stand out to buyers.
A Re-Inspection can be helpful in keeping a buyer and seller on the same page about agreed-upon repairs. After a Buyer’s Inspection, the buyer’s requested repairs will be addressed. A Re-Inspection can then be scheduled to ensure that all agreements were met and that the repairs are finalized.
New Construction Inspection
A New Construction Inspection can give builders the opportunity to address unnoticed defects in construction before the final walkthrough. We thoroughly inspect the new home for any oversights that need to be repaired ahead of time.
4 Point Inspection
A 4 Point Inspection is typically done so that an insurer gets a better understanding of the most significant areas of the home. During the inspection, we check the condition of the following areas: the roof, HVAC system, plumbing system, and electrical system.
Commercial Building Inspection
Scheduling a Commercial Building Inspection is an important first step before purchasing or using a commercial property. We will thoroughly inspect properties such as strip malls, storefronts, warehouses, and more to better understand their overall condition and any damages or defects that need to be addressed.
Aerial Survey Inspections
We use an aerial drone camera to complete Aerial Survey Inspections. The drone will fly over a property, collecting high-resolution photos of the roof’s condition, the overall property, and the surrounding areas and layout. Our inspector, Noah Cervantes, carries Remote Pilot License #4170095.
Infrared Home Energy Inspections
We use a state-of-the-art thermal imaging camera to perform Infrared Home Energy Inspections. The infrared camera picks up on areas of heat loss within surfaces where we typically could not see, including walls, ceilings, and floors. By showing us where cool spots are in the home, the camera allows us to determine if there are areas of missing or insufficient insulation.
