Home Inspections

A single-family home inspection is a detailed visual evaluation of the function and safety of a home. The inspection is typically done within a 7-10 day window once a house is under contract.

I am licensed by the State of Maryland as a Home Inspector (#32811). The inspection is performed following both a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

A typical inspection takes 2-3 hours and starts with the roof and exterior. I then work through the inside of the home from top to bottom looking at things like the structure, heating/cooling, plumbing, electrical, fireplace, and doors/windows. Check out the photo gallery to see some issues I have found.

Many competitors in the area charge a flat percentage of the home's list price for their inspections. I believe this is unfair because of various sizes, ages, locations, and lot sizes in each situation. My rates are competitive and vary based on the location, total square footage, and age.

A custom narrative report with detailed comments and pictures will be emailed to the client in about a day (typically same day). A sample report is available. All inspections include a complimentary Now that You've Had a Home Inspection.

Other Types of Inspections

Annual Maintenance Inspections: Allow current homeowners to learn more about the functionality and upkeep of a home's systems to budget for future repair or replacement items.

11th Month Inspections: Allow buyers of newly constructed homes to verify that all components of the house are in proper working order before the builder's one-year warranty runs out.

Walk & Talk Inspections: Are for real estate investors or those clients who are not interested in the cost and detail of a written report for a home purchase. I can perform a walk-through of the property to identify possible areas of concern.

Pricing

  • Pricing starts at $275 for condos, townhouses, and single-family homes.

Frequently Asked Questions

In most cases, you actually don't have to unless required by a lender. However, it is important to consider the risk while balancing about 1/1000th of the home purchase cost to have a professional give the house an evaluation.
Absolutely. All buyers (especially first timers) and their agents are encouraged to attend if possible. I will take time to explain the location, purpose, operation, and maintenance of the different systems in the home.
