Home Inspections

Protect your most important investment.

What could be more exciting than buying a new home? The experience of a new community, new neighbours and friends, and perhaps even a whole new outlook on life can certainly prove to be an extremely exhilarating event.

Whether you’re shopping for previously owned or new, if you’re thinking about buying a home, make sure you know its true condition before you make an offer. A comprehensive inspection by a certified AmeriSpec professional can mean the difference between finding your dream home, and moving into a nightmare. AmeriSpec inspectors examine over 400 items within a home, then detail the findings in the AmeriSpec Report™.

A complete home inspection:

  • Gives you the peace of mind of knowing you’ve made a sound buying decision
  • Reveals the repairs and investments you’ll need to make before you buy
  • Gives you invaluable details about every aspect of your new home
  • Reduces the risk of unwanted “surprises” after you move in.

With an AmeriSpec home inspection, you’ll understand why AmeriSpec offers peace of mind to more buyers than anyone else in the industry.amerispec video

There’s no substitute for peace of mind.

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments a person will ever make. As a seller, you can help prospective homebuyers feel more confident about their home purchase decision by having your listing inspected. By having an inspection performed before you sell the home, you can plan ahead for any repairs or negotiate the selling price. This will make the buyer more confident in the purchase and keep pre-closing problems from hassling both parties.

A thorough home inspection before you put your house on the market:

  • Offers you and your buyers the complete peace of mind that comes from knowing the true condition of your house
  • Lets you prepare for or repair items that could pose a problem, or even reduce your asking price, when negotiating the sale
  • Reduces the chance of last-minute “surprises” that could delay or derail a deal
  • Helps you sell your house faster and easier
  • Helps you sell your house at the best price possible

Improve Your Listing with the AmeriSpec Report™

The AmeriSpec Report™ is a comprehensive, easy-to-read report detailing over 400 items that your AmeriSpec professional examines. It also contains a seasonal maintenance checklist as well as a do-it-yourself Home Maintenance Manual. What a great way to validate that your listing really is a dream home! Also, you will feel more confident knowing you are familiar with the home’s condition.

Sell Your Home Faster and Closer to the Listing Price!

An inspection helps ensure that there are fewer surprises in a real estate transaction, because everyone involved becomes more familiar with the property’s current condition. A professional home inspection provided by the seller can create an atmosphere of good faith. By making repairs and disclosing to the prospective buyer the property’s condition up front, before negotiations begin, you can create a more relaxed atmosphere by instilling confidence regarding the home’s condition. This, in turn, may help your house sell faster and closer to listing price.

Take the mystery out of selling your house. Make it easier for prospective buyers to imagine themselves living in your home. Call your local AmeriSpec inspector today to schedule an inspection!
