What Should I Expect?

You have found your Dream Home and the Offer to Purchase has been accepted, so what is next? The "Due Diligence" period.

Q: What is the “Due Diligence” period?

A: “Due Diligence” is the Buyer’s time-out period to investigate the property to ensure that the home is as disclosed and to prepare for closing without obligation to purchase.

Q: What should the buyer investigate during “Due Diligence”?

A: Any process to identify potential problems that may influence the decision to finalize the purchase, such as requesting pest and septic inspections, property survey, appraisal, title search, loan acquisition, and a complete home inspection.

Q: Is the Buyer responsible for scheduling or requesting the inspections?

A: Yes, however, the Real Estate Broker or your Buyer's Agent will be able to assist in this process including scheduling.

Q: Why is a Home Inspection needed, the Sellers have submitted a disclosure form?

A: Sellers are not always aware of major problems discovered by the Home Inspector.

Q: Is the Seller required to make corrections or repairs in response to the home inspection discoveries?

A: No, inspection reports are not mandatory repair lists, however, they are often the subject of contract negotiations.

As an InterNACHI® Certified Professional Inspector®:

  • I'm required to stay up to date with the industry’s most rigorous Continuing Education through online, video and live training courses, which have been awarded more than 1,400 approvals and accreditations by governmental and other agencies;

  • I adhere to a comprehensive Standards of Practice to ensure that you receive a detailed and accurate home inspection;

  • I abide by a strict Code of Ethics, which puts my clients first and protects their rights as consumers; and

  • I use state-of-the-art inspection tools and reporting software so that my clients can make informed decisions about the homes they want to buy or sell.

My standard home inspection is an evaluation of the visible and accessible interior and exterior structures, systems, and components. Your report will include my findings of any material defects I discover in an easy-to-read format. I will also provide my recommendations for monitoring, repair or replacement. And my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in your report.

For the Home Buyer

A home is probably the largest purchase you'll ever make, so it's important to understand the condition of your investment. I will provide a non-invasive examination of the home’s accessible structure, systems, and components. While a home inspection is not a prediction of future conditions, and cannot reveal every concern that exists (or ever could exist), it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.

For the Home Seller

Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified Seller Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you're dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home pre-inspected now.

For the Real Estate Professional

Your reputation is your most valuable asset. Your clients rely on you to guide them through a complicated and sometimes stressful process. Demonstrate to them that their trust in you is justified by referring them to me. As an InterNACHI® Certified Professional Inspector®, my experience, training, and professionalism will deliver the information your clients need. The best advertising is a happy client.

I will provide a personalized inspection of your home.
