Buying a House Inspection

Whether you are buying a house or seeking a home safety check on an existing property, we're here to help you every step of the way. JHS has been doing building inspections since 1986, so we really mean it when we say we're here to help you.

  • BUYING A HOME? HIRE a HOME INSPECTOR
    -Hire professional home inspectors near me! We offer each client a comprehensive photo rich 30+ page detailed home inspections report on the home you are interested in. We will show you which findings are the result of normal wear and tear, any items that will need to be resolved and which items are a safety issue to your family. Homes are expensive, don't purchase and hope for the best. KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING! Download our FREE Pre-Inspection Worksheet HERE

  • PRE-SALE PROPERTY INSPECTION can help you to SELL YOUR HOME
    -Almost every home is sold with a home inspection. And almost every home has problems. Buyers can sue in court if undisclosed problems are found after your closing. Protect yourself and get a jump on the selling process; order a pre-sale home inspection prior to putting your home on the market. We can help you with strategies to help even a first time home buyer feel secure in buying your house, and to help mitigate your liability through proper disclosure. A pre-sale proeprty inspection may actually help to sell your home faster and with less negotiation, too!

  • HOMEOWNERS HOME SAFETY CHECK
    -We recommend our annual Home Safety Check on every home. Our building inspector will check for carbon monoxide issues, moisture in your walls, mold issues, plumbing and electrical problems and more. We test your CO2 and smoke detectors, and even check for animals in the attic and crawl if access is available.
    -All home items wear out over time including windows, furnace, hot water tank, chimney, sump pumps, doors, roof, siding and more. We can help you to decide if repairs or replacement of expensive items in your home are necessary and make sense. All in one report.
    -We also show you where your water, electricy and gas shutoffs are. Just in case.
