Your Inspections, Services & Protection

Your Inspections

We strongly recommend that professional inspections be done during the escrow period. These inspections are most often paid outside of escrow and paid directly to the inspector.  The cost of each inspection will vary by company as well as size and amenities of the home.  We have taken the time, so you don’t have to, to find providers that our clients and/or office have used and recommend.

General Home Inspection

The purpose of a general home inspection is to have a licensed person review the entire home. The home inspector will look at the attic, basement/crawlspace, the interior and exterior walls, all appliances, plumbing, and electrical systems.  The home inspector will then issue a detailed report of all findings, the home inspector is not able to do any repairs.  The average cost of a home inspection is between $200.00 and $500.00.

The inspectors may be limited and not include inspections of roofs, swimming pools/spas and or equipment. An additional charge or separate inspector may be required.

Pest Inspection

The purpose of a pest inspection is to have a licensed person review the property for any wood destroying organism or the potential to have any wood destroying organisms.  They will be looking for signs of active or past termite infestations, mold as well as dry and rotting wood that can attract termites and other wood destroying organisms (referred to as Section 1 damages).  They will also be looking for conditions around the home that may lead to future Section 1 damages (referred to as Section 2).  The inspector will provide a report of all their findings as well as the cost for the repair/treatment.  The average cost of a pest inspection is between $50.00 to $125.00. Repair and treatment costs can vary.

Roof Inspection

The purpose of a roof inspection is to have a licensed person review the condition and approximate age of the roof. The inspector will generally be able to inspect the roof from the exterior of the home but if deficiencies are discovered then further interior inspection may be required. For an additional fee, if the condition and age of the roof are within acceptable standards, then the inspection company may be able to issue a warranty or certification against leaks for a specific number of years. Most roof inspection companies will inspect the roof for free. The warranty/certification fee averages between $150.00 and $300.00 if no repairs are needed.

Home Warranty

A home warranty plan is different from insurance.  A warranty policy can protect you and your home in the event of a failure of a major home system component or appliance.  Home warranty protection plans are available for both Buyers and Sellers.  Please investigate the benefits and limitations of each plan before choosing a specific plan.
