Residential Inspections

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Before you buy, you should have a home inspection to avoid potentially costly repairs that would otherwise go undetected until they become even more costly. This is my typical home inspection that catches common defects so you understand the investment you’re making.

4-Point Inspections

A 4-Point Inspection is a basic evaluation of four critical areas of a home—the HVAC systems, the roofing system, the electrical system, and the plumbing system. This inspection is often required by insurers before they’re willing to issue or renew a policy on an older home.

Wind Mitigation Inspections

A wind mitigation inspection can help homeowners fortify their homes against wind damage, resulting in potential insurance discounts, increased safety, higher resale value, and peace of mind. This specialized home inspection evaluates a property's ability to withstand strong winds and tropical storms.

Pre Listing Inspections

A pre-listing inspection can not only help expedite the selling process, but potentially even increase the property's sale price. Additionally, they can help reduce the chances of a sale falling through due to unexpected issues with the property being discovered during the negotiation or buyer's inspection.

11 Month Warranty Inspections

Just because your home is new, doesn’t necessarily mean it is defect-free. Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. I perform a full home inspection before the builder’s warranty expires. At your 11-month mark, take advantage of your last chance to use your warranty!

Condo Inspections

Getting a condo inspection isn’t something that people always think about, but it is just as important as getting a home inspection on a residential home. Condos can have many of the same issues that homes can have, so it is important to make sure that the area is a safe place to live!

Insurance Inspections

An insurance inspection helps to identify potential risks and hazards in a property that could lead to damage or loss. The information reflected in the report helps insurance companies assess the level of risk and determine appropriate coverage and premiums for the property.

The Best Modern Report in the Industry​

Here at Inshore Inspections, while I encourage my clients to walk through the home with me, I understand that you may be too busy or may not have time to do so.

Regardless of whether or not you attend the inspection, I will compile a comprehensive Spectora report, which includes all of the information you need to determine the condition of the home.

I will deliver my report within 24 hours of the conclusion of your home inspection, so that you can quickly access a full overview of my findings – and discuss them with me and your agent.

Frequently Asked Questions

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation. Home inspections are designed to protect the buyer, by revealing problems they might not have noticed otherwise.

My home inspections start at $295. The cost will vary based on the square footage of the home, the age of the home, and location of the home. Call, text, or email for a quote today!

Home inspections generally take 2 to 4 hours to complete. The duration of a home inspection depends on many factors such as the size of the home, the condition of the home, and the ability to access certain areas of the home (roof, crawl space, attic, etc.).

Although it is not necessary, I do recommend that you attend the inspection so you can ask questions and learn more about the home. You will learn a lot from the inspection report, but I always encourage you to attend!

It is important to note that no house is perfect. At the end of the home inspection process, I will provide a detailed report that describes the physical condition of the property, with images and videos highlighting what may need repair or replacement.
