A home inspection is a thorough examination of a home and property, including mobile and manufactured homes, as well as townhouses and condos. Many mortgage companies insist on a home inspection report before agreeing to a mortgage, so a pre-sale inspection enables you to address problems before you even put the house on the market. It also removes any questions about the condition of your home for you and a potential home buyer.
Most home buyers and many home sellers rely on a certified home inspector for a non-biased report that breaks down the condition of each major system in the home. Home inspections may often reveal problems with a home that could be very expensive in the long run. The home inspection report could be used as a valuable tool while bargaining with potential buyer or seller.
We offer competitively priced certified home inspections, for buyers and sellers, in Lorain County, Erie County, Huron County, Ashland County, Medina County and Cuyahoga County. Based on availability, we can even offer same day appointments.
The result of the home inspection is a written report that includes pictures of important areas, information describing the condition of inspected areas, and recommendations. The inspection report is provided to you by email. The report is made to the established inspection standards of ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors).
The inspection is accurately managed using InspectIT software which produces nicely formatted reports. An example InspectIT report in Adobe PDF format can be viewed by clicking the icon below.

The property consultation is similar to a general home/condo inspection, but is not as detailed and does not include a written report. The focus of the consultation is on major systems and components and not on general repair and maintenance items. Consultations are only recommended for experienced property owners or investors, or for properties that distressed or being sold as-is. The consultation is less expensive than a home/condo inspection, call for pricing and details.
