What We Inspect
Observant Home Inspection LLC has designed our program to assure you a thorough, easy-to-understand overview of the conditions of the home you are about to sell/purchase. Buying/selling a home is not something you do every day and we provide the information you need for peace of mind. We inspect single family homes, multi-family residences (4 or few families), and rental homes. Mobile homes are excluded.
We will assure the inspection of, and report on, over 400 items; provide a verbal summary and answer your questions before we leave the house and deliver a detailed written report via email with annotated photographs and an easy to read summary with 24-36 hours. The written report will point out major and minor deficiencies to give you the complete picture of the home’s condition; identify any major expenditures coming up so you can budget these potential expenses; identify any potential safety hazards present; identify any systems or equipment that is not operational and provide a list of potential improvements and minor repair/ maintenance recommended.
