HOME INSPECTORS

A home inspection is recommended to every purchaser and sometimes we recommend that our sellers have a “pre-listing” home inspection.  An inspection will provide a useful guide to the homeowner by helping to prioritize any necessary maintenance and improvements for the new owner, such as adding additional ventilation or updating electrical outlets, etc.  It can also provide an approximation of the remaining useful life of the roof, furnace, etc.  The primary reason for an inspection is to discover any hidden deficiencies of which often the seller is not even aware.  We can provide you with a current list of local inspectors upon request.
