 A Home Inspection May Be the Best Investment You Ever Make

A home inspection may be the best investment your ever make.  Are you worried about the condition of the house you are about to purchase?  Have you heard horror stories from friends and co-workers about problems  they didn’t realize existed until after they moved into their new house?  Do you have questions about the house you are about to buy but don’t know who to ask for unbiased professional answers?

Unless you are proficient in plumbing, electricity, carpentry, roofing, heating and cooling and a dozen other trades you may end up finding  you have just closed on a house with $10,000 to $15,000 of needed repairs.  Jim and Mary W. from Collinsville, IL avoided just that problem by having a state licensed home inspector do a comprehensive assessment on all of the major components of the house they were about to acquire.

You Have Access

Believe it or not you have access to licensed home inspectors who will carefully inspect all major systems in your prospective dream home.  You will receive an unbiased detailed report of the house’s current condition and a free termite inspection.  You will be encouraged to attend the inspection and our inspector will carefully explain the results and answer your questions.

After the inspector has finished his careful evaluation he will print the home inspection report on site and go over each important finding with special emphasis on safety and structural issues.  Our reports will cover all major systems and will usually include 50 or more color pictures including two views of each room when possible.  This is an excellent time to make written notes for future reference.   You will leave the inspection with a three-ring binder containing the written report and all of the pictures taken during the inspection process.  The DVD allows you to review each room in the house, e-mail pictures to friends and family,  print copies for the Title Company or Bank and sleep soundly at night knowing your reports are safely stored electronically for you.
