What to Expect From Your Inspection

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, Obsessed Inspections provides professional and quality service from the moment you call us. As a licensed home inspector, I will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. Most inspections can take anywhere from 2-4 hours depending on the property size. In the process, I follow the Standards of Practice (SOP’s) for home inspectors established of InterNACHI & FABI, the leading home inspection associations.

After we walk through the home together, I will personally explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addresses sooner rather than later. I will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in my easy-to-read Spectora report, that will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.

After the home inspection is done. The number one question is, How much is this going to cost to fix? Obsessed Inspection can help with that. We are a preferred partner with Repair Pricer. Click the link to find out more.

Now that you’ve had a home inspection, what do you do? As a new homeowner, it’s important to understand that your house requires care and maintenance. With time, parts of your house will wear out, break down, deteriorate, or simply stop working. I will prove you with a free home maintenance book (see video) that will teach you how your house works, how to keep it maintained, and how to save energy.
