We Provide:

  • Pre-Purchase Inspections

    A Pre-Purchase Inspection is the most common of all inspections offered and is an integral part of the Real Estate Transaction when buying a home. Learn more...

  • Pre-Offer Inspections

    In a multiple offer environment where your offer cannot be tied to conditions, Real Estate Professionals will sometimes arrange to have Pre-Offer Home Inspections performed so you can make an educated offer if you so choose to engage in the bidding process of that property. Learn more...

  • Post Purchase Inspections

    Post Purchase Inspections you would agree are counter intuitive. You normally have the inspection performed prior to purchasing the home so you know what you are buying and can negotiate the findings with the vendor if repair or replacement of any component(s) is required. Learn more...

  • Home Maintenance Inspections

    Buying and owning a place you can call home is a comforting thought for anyone. However, to live in it successfully over time, it is essential that you have an understanding of how the systems and components of the home function and work together. Learn more...
