There are times when a homeowner could benefit from the knowledge of a home inspector but not have the need for a full property inspection.  I have been working on addressing this and developed a home “check up”

A home  “check up”  is a limited inspection ideal for a home owner wanting to plan for future expenses and address issues that could create large repairs in the future. The check up will report on the condition of all the major components of your home, including the roof, drainage, furnace, hot water heater, electrical components, plumbing and attic.  What I don’t inspect during a check up are all the little things like windows, doors, cabinets etc.  You live in the home, you don’t need me to tell you the door knob is loose.

Benefits of a check-up:

  • Plan for future expenses
  • Save energy
  • Eliminate surprise repairs
  • Minimize damages from water
  • Prevent damages from severe weather
  • Maintain a safe home
  • Maintain the value of your home

A check up is also a great value to you if you are selling a home.  If there are major concerns identified in the check up the seller has the opportunity to make repairs, or disclose this information as part of the sale.  This will eliminating renegotiating after the buyer completes their inspection.

In many ways a check up on your home is like going to the doctor, the difference is I do house calls.

The “Check up” just $179.00

**The “Check up” is not an alternative for a the pre-purchase inspection.  When you are purchasing a home a full (essential) home inspection is the recommended service.
