Review Inspection Sales Program

A Review Inspection is purchased from a buyer when our company performed the original pre-listing inspection. It’s a walk-through inspection, performed by the same inspector and using the original pre-listing inspection. We’ll look over the property with Buyer and note fixes or replacements, talk about the findings and answer questions for the buyer. This inspection should take about half the time of original Home Buyers Inspection.

The Review Inspection benefits the buyer because it’s no more than half the price of the Home Buyer Inspection. They get to see the original report and the inspector will re-inspect everything with them and note improvements. They can ask any questions and we’ll give them a free Home Maintenance Manual and DVD.

Accompany a Buyer Program

A home inspector will accompany the buyer to a walk-through for a prospective home purchase prior to offer. No professional home inspection reporting will take place but Inspector will answer any questions and provide an expert opinion from the visual inspection.
