Buyers Home Inspection

You found your new home, you’re offer has been accepted, now it’s time for the inspection. At first look the home may appear to be in great condition. However, there may be a number of unobserved defects, or safety hazards. Plus there might be major household items which are near the end of their life span, items such as the roof, water heater, air conditioner, or heater. The home sellers disclosure form only marginally helps, because memory may fail, or most likely, the seller simply do not know about the deficiencies (issues) that might exist in their very own home. Includes Protection Plans

Home Sellers Inspection

It is time for you to sell, did you know that you really should get a home inspection? One of the main reasons a home sale transaction can fall apart, is the inspection, or in the seller’s case, lack of an inspection. It’s purpose is to uncover defects in advance so that the buyer’s inspection don’t become deal-breakers. Your buyers are going to get a home and termite inspection, so you may as well know what they are going to find out ahead of time. This way you can disclose these findings, or get repairs done. Getting caught with “you’re pants down” will cost you much more money in the end.

Meat and potatoes inspection

Meat & Potatoes Inspection

Meat and Potatoes Inspection, this  is 1st Insight Inspections standard buyers home inspection, but without our protection plans. This inspection is $35.00 less, otherwise you get the same thorough inspection as 1st Insight always provides.

New Home Warranty Inspection

You bought yourself a new home. And perhaps one of the reasons you bought new was you did not want to deal with any repair headaches, or costs. But now the one year builders warranty is about to expire, that was you’re life raft.  You would be surprised at some of the issues we find in new houses. Why risk having to pay for repairs in the future, which could have been discovered with a thorough inspection? Let your builder pay to fix any found deficiencies. You certainly don’t want to pay for any of these unknown existing deficiencies when you sell your house.

Buyer Protection Plans Included

1st Insight Inspections provides you protection, with its standard home buyers inspections…
