Buyer’s Home Inspections

Our inspectors at Detail View Home Inspectors are able to identify deficiencies which are present in the home, can recognize prior repairs which have been made and in many cases can see the potential for future problems that may exist.

Home Inspection Process

Seller’s Home Inspections

Having a pre-sales inspection performed will insure the potential buyers that you are concerned about their interest in the transaction and will give them more confidence to complete the purchase. 

Our purpose during the inspection of your home is to look for the following 5 items:

  • Health and Safety Issues

  • Structural Problems

  • Items or Systems in Need of Repair

  • Water Penetration and Its Affects

  • Insect Damage

In addition, our goal is to educate the buyer on the care and maintenance of a home to help your investment continue to increase in value according to the market value of the home. A complete home inspection includes a thorough examination of the major components that combine to form the structural support and working systems in a home.
