ONE INSPECTION DOES
NOT FIT ALL!
I do not believe that one type of inspection meets the needs
of every person seeking a home inspection. For example, a
seller typically has an entirely different set of needs than
a buyer, as does as investor who's planning on gutting and
renovating a home. Therefore, I offer different inspections
to meet those differing needs, all at different prices, and
all providing different information. Anyone needing a property
inspection can find something that meets their needs at a
price they can afford. Simply pick the inspection that's right
for you and contact me for more
information or to schedule an appointment.
My most popular home inspections are
discussed below. Prices are dependent upon several factors,
most commonly the type of property (condo, house, etc.), size
of property in square feet, whether on a slab, crawl space
or basement, age of the property and location.
STANDARD HOME INSPECTION
This is my most popular inspection. It is suitable and recommended
for all types of properties. My STANDARD inspection is a Comprehensive
Inspection as defined in our Standards
of Practice. It includes (1) cosmetic damage and
"minor" defects (note that cosmetic damage and "minor"
defects are determined solely by me and might differ from
your opinion or from the opinions of third parties), (2) common
information about your home, (3) common maintenance and safety
tips. Cosmetic and "minor" defects include items
such as holes in screen windows; loose hardware on cabinets,
doors, and drawers; doorknob holes in walls, etc. Keep in
mind that one damaged screen window might be okay, but what
if there are 15 damaged screen windows? Now that minor cost
for repairing one screen is multiplied by a factor of however
many screen windows are involved. In the overall scheme of
things, it is relatively easy to resolve those problems, but
if there are a lot of them, then the total expense could be
higher than you'd like. Contact me
if you have any questions.
DELUXE HOME INSPECTION
This is my second most popular inspection. It includes my
STANDARD comprehensive inspection and "2" RADON
tests done by a certified RADON MEASUREMENT TECHNICIAN. Two
tests are required for a real estate transaction. Greenville
County is rated a Zone 1 by the EPA for RADON GAS.
This is the highest rating they give. RADON GAS is the
leading cause of lung cancer in the US for non-smokers.
The only way to know if you home contains this toxic gas is
to have it tested by a certified technician. Contact
me if you have any questions.
PREMIUM HOME INSPECTION
This is my third most popular inspection and is most suitable
for the demanding Client who desires only the best. This inspection
includes not only my DELUXE inspection, but also my appliance
package. It has pictures of the appliances, as well as
manufacturers' names, model numbers, and serial numbers, and
pages for information on new or additional appliances and
equipment. There are safety and maintenance tips concerning
those appliances, and you can record service or maintenance
data and information in it. There also are extra pages for
recording information about new appliances that you buy.
The appliance package does not include personal property
(refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.) and non-standard systems
(water modification systems, central cleaning systems, etc.),
but it does have extra pages so that you can enter the appropriate
information about those.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to have all your valuable
insurance information in one place for easy reference. Contact
me if you have any questions.
BASIC HOME INSPECTION
This is my fourth most popular inspection and most closely
resembles the inspections done by my major competition. It
includes only major defects. It does not include (1) cosmetic
damage and "minor" defects (note that cosmetic damage
and "minor" defects are determined solely by me
and might differ from your opinion or from the opinions of
third parties), (2) common information about your home, (3)
common maintenance and safety tips. For example, typical complaints
I receive concerning this type of inspection is not noting
doorknob holes in walls; loose hardware on doors, cabinets,
and drawers; and small holes or minor damage to screen doors
and windows. In the overall scheme of things, those common
problems are not difficult or expensive to resolve. However,
if you want me to document as many of those as possible, you
want at least my STANDARD inspection. Keep in mind that one
damaged screen window might be okay, but what if there are
15 damaged screen windows? Now that minor cost for repairing
one screen is multiplied by a factor of however many screen
windows are involved.
The BASIC inspection is best for Clients needing just the
basic, major defects, either because they are an investor
and will be gutting and renovating the house, or because they
are a general handyman or other person familiar with the ins
and outs of real estate. This inspection is not recommended
for first-time home buyers, Realtors completing their first
home inspection experience, or anyone purchasing a newly constructed
or recently renovated home.
In having a BASIC inspection, it is very important that you
read through SOLUTIONS and your email report to get a full
and complete understanding of the condition of the house at
the time of the inspection, as well as what I did and did
not do, or could and could not do, at the time of the inspection.
