Before buying or selling a property you should be armed with the best knowledge possible. A professional property inspection is the best way to determine any underlying structural issues the property may have that the previous owner failed to notice. Our Inspector will inspect the structure of the property including entry ways, foundations and porches as well as the exterior of the property such as balconies and analyze the grading of the land for any drainage problems or safety concerns. An Inspector will complete a report for the buyer and/or seller to use in their decision regarding their next move on the property. Property Inspections are beneficial for a buyer or seller as knowledge regarding the properties strengths and weaknesses will help throughout the negotiation process
