What to Expect From Your Home Inspection
Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, Ciara Property Inspections provides professional and quality service from the moment you call. I will walk through the home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. I strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by InterNACHI, the leading home inspection association.
After we walk through the home together, I will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. I will talk through any major issues with you that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. I will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in an easy-to-read Spectora report, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
