Home Buyers:  Pre-purchase Home inspections

You found the home you want, at a good price.  It looks great.  Of course it does, since the seller prepared it for sale.  We will look past the fresh paint and help you determine the actual condition of the house and its major systems. 

Before you close the deal, you want to know.   


Home Sellers: Pre-listing Home Inspections

If you are preparing to sell your home, a pre-listing home inspection may help ensure that the   process will go smoothly and quickly.   Our pre-listinginspections are the same as our inspections for buyers, but provideyou the seller, with information about the condition of your home andunderstand how the buyer’s inspector will view your home.  This information can help you prepare yourhome for sale and avoid surprises during the transaction process.

Be prepared, not surprised, so you want to know.


Radon Testing

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas, which is found in about half of the DC area homes at levels that should be reduced.  You can't see or smell radon, but if it is a problem, it can be fixed.  

Will the home need a radon mitigation system?  You want to know. 


Aging-in-Place Home Readiness and Safety Audits

If you or a family member are planning to remain at home while growing older, an Aging-in-Place Home Readiness and Safety Audit - a supplement to a general home inspection -- will help identify concerns and prioritize improvements and repairs that can make the home a safer, more secure, convenient and accessible environment for you and visitors.

If you want a safe home, you need to know.
