What to Expect From Your Home Inspection

What to expect at your Home Inspection

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, Advance Home Inspections provides professional service from the moment you call us. Our certified home inspectors will walk through your home with you and help you learn about your home.

After we do a walk through of your home together, we will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed and how soon they need to be addressed. We will also mention the items that could need maintenance in the future. All of these things will be detailed in my easy-to-read Spectora report, that will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see everything you need, my recommendations and images for reference.
