Pre Offer Inspections

Please call for pricing.. You'll be glad you did :)

I know money is tight right now and you might not get an accepted offer. However, I am willing to reduce my fees, in order to see you get a proper home inspection and perform your due diligence, rather than going in blind and possibly ending up with a major headache and costs after you've bought the house and moved into it.

You would be surprised, even terrified, if I showed you some of the issues I have seen just the past three months on homes that buyers almost bought! These were not flips or cheap homes, but houses selling from $300K to over $1.5 Million. Repairs vary but included bowed or failing foundation walls, water intrusion and mould, rotted or otherwise damaged structures, incorrect wiring practices or updates required to electrical systems, etc. The repair/replacement costs ranged from $4-5, 000 up to and even over $60,000. in one instance...

A pre offer inspection I provide is NOT a Walk Through or Walk & Talk inspection offered by some other home inspectors. Quite frankly, this type of inspection is more likely to miss issues and without a home inspection performed to the proper stadards of practice, which must include a written report, there is no legal recourse for you in the event of a liability concern. You get what you pay for, which is very little in my opinion.

With my Pre offer inspection, you get a 100% full, thorough and detailed inspection with a written report that includes photos of deficiencies I find emailed within 12 hours, but without the bells and whistles of a binder and home owner info usually provided with a regular inspection. This saves me (and YOU) money, without sacrificing the merits and diligence of a properly performed home inspection.


Buying a house in today's competitive market is tough. But putting an offer on a house after only seeing it for 15-30 minutes, without knowing what you are really buying, should you really do that?
