Buyers 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 our typical home inspection that catches common defects so you understand the investment you’re making.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Some homeowners want to make repairs to their house before they put it on the market and will make repairs using their inspection report as a baseline reference. Please understand that most buyers will still want to perform their own inspection even if the seller has already had an inspection done.

Annual Home Maintenance Inspections

As homes age, the quality of the building and its utilities begin to deteriorate. Our annual maintenance inspections include roof inspections, plumbing inspections, electrical inspections, foundation inspections, attic insulation inspections and building structure inspections.

Thermal Imaging

The purpose of an infrared scan is to find issues that may not be visible to the naked eye and catch them before they become a major problem. With the use of our infrared camera, we can help identify moisture, insulation, electrical, HVAC issues, and more.

Home Energy Inspections

A home energy inspection can help you understand the whole picture of your home’s energy use, comfort, and safety. A thorough inspection can help you determine how much energy your home uses, where your home is inefficient, and which problem areas and fixes you should prioritize to save energy and improve the comfort of your home. A professional home energy inspection will provide a thorough analysis of your home’s energy use.

New Home Inspections

Newly constructed homes need an objective third-party to inspect. The city or county inspectors often don’t catch everything, but we’ve been trained to have a keen eye for anything that could compromise a new home’s lifetime or safety.

The Best Modern Report in the Industry​

While Emerald Valley Inspection Services LLC encourages our clients to walk through the home with me, I understand that you may be too busy, and 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 your 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 $350. 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 me 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 unnecessary, I recommend you attend toward the end of the inspection to ask questions and learn more about the home. You will learn a lot from the inspection report, but I always encourage you to attend towards the end if possible!

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. The information provided is to allow a potential buyer to make an informed decision about moving forward with the transaction. It is not pass or fail.
