Who We Serve
If we could give you just one piece of advice, it would be this: Don’t skip the inspection! Especially if you’re a first-time buyer. Sure, it can be tempting if time is short. But the report you’ll get is a vital piece of the home-buying process, and can give you the confidence and, should you need it, the negotiating power that every home-buyer deserves.
A home inspection also establishes a baseline, capturing a moment in time to measure future problems and enhancements against.
To give you even more assurance about your home-buying decision, we offer the InterNACHI “We’ll Buy Your Home” Guarantee. If we miss a covered item, we’ll buy the house back.
A pre-listing/pre-sale inspection can give you a heads-up on what a buyer’s inspection may uncover, so there’s no surprises. Knowing in detail what improvements or repairs your home might need in order to get the best possible price gives you the chance to make repairs, adjust your asking price, or defend your asking price. They can be especially helpful if you’ve done any remodeling or home improvements.
Sometimes you just want to know what’s going on with the home you’re living in. Perhaps you couldn’t access the attic the first time you got an inspection, or maybe your home has been in the family for generations and defects have gone undetected for years. A professional home inspection can show you areas where improvements would be welcome, and can alert you to potential problems you may face in the future. Semi-regular and annual home maintenance inspections are not uncommon.
And it’s not all bad news! An inspection can confirm to you that certain things you think are in good order actually are, and can alert you to positive features of your home you may not have known were there.
All Kinds Of Homes
We inspect all kinds of residential properties across South Central Wisconsin — from the old farmhouses of Oregon and Windsor/DeForest to the Tudor homes of Madison and Shorewood Hills; from the Victorians of Stoughton and Mount Horeb to the Prairie and Craftsman styles of Middleton; from the bungalows of Monona to the new construction of Marshall and Sun Prairie, two of the fastest-growing areas in Dane County.
Wait, New Construction Too?
You may think new construction may not need to be inspected, but unless you know the builder personally, you have no way of telling in what condition, albeit new, the mechanics of the house really are. From human error to faulty materials, the only way to know for sure is to have it looked at by a certified home inspector.
