On Inspection Day
On inspection day, I ask that the client meet me at the property to review and sign the pre-inspection agreement (if not already completed online) and discuss any concerns the client may have. I'll then perform a limited visual inspection of the property to evaluate each of the major systems of the property, including:
- Structural condition
- Electrical, plumbing, hot water heater
- Heating and air conditioning
- Basement; crawl space and attic, including insulation and ventilation
- Kitchen and appliances
- General interior, including ceiling, walls, windows and floors
- General exterior, including roof, gutter, chimney; drainage and grading of the lot
The client is welcome to follow along as I complete the inspection and ask questions or freely explore the property. At the completion of the inspection, I share a verbal summary of the inspection with the client regarding the overall condition of the property with a walk-thru as needed. On average, an inspection takes 3 - 3 1/2 hours.
After the Inspection
Following the inspection, the client will receive the complete inspection report (including digital photos) via email in 24-48 hours.
The client is welcome to contact me with any questions in regard to the inspection or the inspection report.
