Be Confident In Your Property Transaction

Buying or selling a home may be one of the most significant financial commitments you ever make, so it’s very important to determine exactly what you’re getting into before you make that commitment.

InSight Inspection NW has knowledge, experience, and tools to provide you with a thorough and accurate description of your potential new home’s condition.  We are trained and certified to identify concerns both minor and major which may require professional attention, time and resources.  The home inspection report or consultation you receive from us will certainly equip you with a solid view of not only the state of the house but also with a clear understanding of possible steps that may need to be taken to make improvements and/or repairs.  With that, you can make an informed decision about your financial transaction.

We Notice the Little Things

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation. The standard home inspector's report will include an evaluation of the condition of the home's heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement/crawl space, and visible structure

Buying or selling a home may be one of the most significant financial commitments you ever make, so it’s very important to determine exactly what you’re getting into before you make that commitment.

InSight Inspection NW provides these services:

  1. Home Inspection Report -  a full written inspection report with pictures, concerns, and recommendations - for a home buyer, a home seller, or a RE agent
  2. Walk-Through Verbal Consultation - for Pre-Purchase or Pre-Listing inspection.  It follows the same strategy and standards of practice as a full inspection but focuses on the major deficiencies of the home in essential areas: roof, attic, crawl space, electrical panel, furnace, heat pump, & hot water tank

FOR HOME BUYERS

For the home buyer, having a good understanding of the condition of a property is crucial to making informed decisions during a real estate transaction. Our Home Inspection Report will provide you with a thorough and accurate description of the home you're considering to invest in. Having this information will assist you in making an informed financial decision about the scope and significance of issues and problems in the house/property you're interested in; the Inspection Report will review the systems in your house to ensure you have a clear understanding of their functionality; it will also list concerns which, if left unchecked, could develop into expensive problems.

  • accurately price your home, reducing time on market
  • determine the scope of potentially costly repairs
  • encourage a buyer to waive inspection contingency
