Pre-Purchase Home Inspection

Maryland Home Inspection Services

A pre-purchase home inspection is your tool to learn the real conditions of the home you are buying. It gives you the facts to address potential issues and builds the confidence to decide on this important deal. It reduces the risk of unexpected and costly surprises, may help you save thousands of dollars during renegotiation or avoid purchasing a “money pit”. As my celebrity colleague home inspector Mike Holmes puts it “Getting a Pre-Purchase Inspection is just smart.”

Smart Home Inspects goes above and beyond the industry and now includes infrared inspections as part of our

standard home inspection service. Infrared technology is a powerful noninvasive method to better evaluate the conditions of your home that are not possible to identify with the naked eye. Thermal imaging scans uses the variation of temperature on the surface of building materials to help identify and trace the source of an issue that could go undetected because it is not visible to an observer. We use sophisticated FLIR systems and cameras to obtain clean and clear thermal images and our inspectors are certified residential thermographers who have been through rigorous training to more efficiently use this cutting-edge technology and interpret the results. Smart Home Inspects is committed to providing our clients with the best service and infrared is now part of our standard inspection. We also offer a standalone infrared inspection for single item troubleshooting.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Sometimes referred as Sellers Inspection, has become a best practice in real estate transactions. It is a win-win situation for all involved and it virtually eliminates many of the pitfalls and hassles associated with waiting for a buyer to find out issues that may affect the transaction. Sellers, agents, and buyers all benefit. It allows the seller to anticipate any objections directed toward property structure and system functions; it is a great aid as a pricing tool, allowing agents to take into consideration all the pluses and minus beyond the aesthetics of the home. Buyers are encouraged and more confident in placing an offer, and it certainly reduces the “change of mind” that buyer’s home inspections can create.

Pool & Spa Inspection

New Construction Inspection

It is reasonable to assume that just because a building passed local codes and ordinances it should be in good shape. Don’t be so sure! Rushed and limited inspections by local code enforcement agency may miss the opportunity to connect all the dots when the building is considered as a whole. Additionally, builders may make modification to a building after code inspections have already taken place. New-home buyers should capitalize on the fact that builders are still on site and willing to correct issues, final payment, and other factors are typically an extra incentive for contractors to be

First Year Anniversary New Home Inspection

New construction typically carries a one-year warranty provided by the builder. Before this warranty runs out, our inspector will inspect and provide you with a detailed report on issues and conditions that may have changed and aged during the building’s first year. As buildings age, systems and components that are functional may be already showing signs or premature wear due to inadequate installation or manufacturer’s defects. Protect your new home and investment before builder’s one year warranty expires.
