Your Inspections, Services & Protection

    Your Inspections

    We strongly recommend that professional inspections be done during the escrow period. These inspections are most often paid outside of escrow and paid directly to the inspector.  The cost of each inspection will vary by company as well as size and amenities of the home.  We have taken the time, so you don’t have to, to find providers that our clients and/or office have used and recommend.

    General Home Inspection

    The purpose of a general home inspection is to have a licensed person review the entire home. The home inspector will look at the attic, basement/crawlspace, the interior and exterior walls, all appliances, plumbing, and electrical systems.  The home inspector will then issue a detailed report of all findings, the home inspector is not able to do any repairs.  The average cost of a home inspection is between $200.00 and $500.00.

    The inspectors may be limited and not include inspections of roofs, swimming pools/spas and or equipment. An additional charge or separate inspector may be required.

    Roof Inspection

    The purpose of a roof inspection is to have a licensed person review the condition and approximate age of the roof. The inspector will generally be able to inspect the roof from the exterior of the home but if deficiencies are discovered then further interior inspection may be required. For an additional fee, if the condition and age of the roof are within acceptable standards, then the inspection company may be able to issue a warranty or certification against leaks for a specific number of years. Most roof inspection companies will inspect the roof for free. The warranty/certification fee averages between $150.00 and $300.00 if no repairs are needed.
