3. Can’t I just perform an inspection myself?
Inspecting your own potential house is not recommended. Our highly skilled team are specially trained to look for things you may miss.

Potential problems come up during inspections frequently and in many cases, the seller is not always aware of them.

As the buyer, you can confidently negotiate repairs to be made before you purchase the property, saving you $
5. Who can be present during the inspection?
Almost certainly the agent will be there. We encourage you to be present at the inspection, but if you can’t make it, we will photograph and document (in detail) everything you need to know. We will follow up with a phone call to you to discuss any findings once the inspection is done.
