Inspection for someone intending to buy a home to inform them of issues they should be aware of.
I go to the property 4 hours ahead of my client(s) and go through the house. I take pictures of everything I look at, and then make a copy of the pictures for the client(s). I go through the pictures with the client(s) when they arrive, and then we look at any specific issues in the house. I usually end up spending 1.5 hours with the client(s). I write a report and email a copy to them, and usually to the realtor as well. I produce a bound hard copy and it goes out in the mail the next day.
The base fee for written inspections is $360. Fees on houses greater than 2200 sq ft will be based on a sliding fee scale based on the size of the house. Please contact Innerspec for price quotes on houses greater than 2200 sq ft.
The client(s) meet me at the house when I arrive and we go through the house together. I still take the same pictures and make a copy for the client(s) but I do not write a report. This process usually takes about 4 hours and the client(s) will have to hang around from time to time while I look in the attic, get equipment, or whatever else.
Various metro cities require an inspection of their home prior to listing their house for sale. These are referred to by various names the most common being TISH (Truth in Sale of Housing), also known in some cities as TOS (Time of Sale) or POS (Point of Sale).
