If you are considering selling your home, a pre-listing inspection will point out any potential problems that might be uncovered later by the buyer’s inspector. Finding them early will allow you to address them before listing your home, making for a faster and smoother sale.
Our report will tell you the condition of the house, including the needed repairs. No house is going to be perfect, and no inspector is going to be perfect. It is up to you to decide how any problems the inspection uncovers might affect your purchase decision. If major problems are discovered, you or your agent may want to negotiate with the seller to have them repaired before closing the deal. Or perhaps the seller will lower the price or offer more favorable contract terms. In the end, the decision rests with you, but knowing about potential problems before you buy, gives you the power to negotiate and make the best decisions.
Whether you’re a newer realtor or a seasoned professional, we strive to be on the list of inspectors you recommend to your clients. We value word of mouth recommendations between agents and always work toward the common goal of a smooth transaction, rising to meet expectations of home buyers and agents while staying within the parameters of a fair and objective inspection report.
Property inspection fees depend on a variety of factors, including: square footage, age of the home, number of heating and air conditioning units, and location. A ballpark figure on an “average” property starts at $350 for a 1500 square foot and less single story slab-on-grade home. Commercial properties sometimes undergo a bidding process depending on the time-frame available and can have multiple options in the bid. Contact us for an accurate quote.
Infrared Thermal Imaging
Infrared thermal imaging gives the ability to see things that are not visible to the human eye. The infrared camera detects and measures the temperature of objects giving an idea of what may be hidden behind walls or ceilings.
What this gives is clues to water leaks that may otherwise go undetected. It can also reveal missing insulation, air leaks in walls, HVAC leaks, or electrical hot spots.
While we use thermal imaging when needed on inspections. We do offer it as an additional service with pictures included for a thorough scan of the home to help identify other issues that are not traditionally found during normal inspections.
Please contact us for thermal imaging inspection services.

We understand how important safety is to your family and pets. The biggest importance of home inspections is the safety aspect. We absolutely put safety concerns as our top priority.
Home inspections are beneficial for buyers and sellers. It can be very nerve wrecking buying or selling a home especially when taking your first leap into home ownership.
Please note homes do NOT “Pass or Fail” Inspections. Every home has deficiencies, often they are minor but sometimes more pressing issues arise. Any issue found during an inspection is required to be reported under TREC SOP’s regulations. Some homes have more issues than others. Often in aging neighborhoods many homes will have similar issues if they haven’t already been corrected.
Our job is to provide facts and opinions thru our knowledge base and resources. Thus, giving an honest report of the conditions for the buyer to understand the homes story. Our client is you, the buyer, we do not work for the realtor, but our professional relationship with realtors is a huge part of our success and business.
You’re welcome to join for the inspection process, it takes anywhere between two to four hours. Be mindful we are busy working, so often we will be running in circles around the home looking things over multiple times. We highly suggest the buyer come towards the end of the inspection so we can do a walk through and explain our findings. This can help you understand what we’re talking about so it’s not completely foreign.
We strive to send the client the full inspection report within 24 hours following the inspection. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
Not planning on moving, but feel like your home needs a professional inspection or just a few items assessed that you’re concerned about? Well we’re here to help!
Often, we as humans will live our daily lives and don’t think about maintenance items that could turn into a bigger issue after many years of not being maintained. We can produce for you a list of items that you should get repaired or schedule regular maintenance for. Here’s another place where educating homeowners is a key to the benefit of hiring CSI. We work hard to explain why regular maintenance is very beneficial to homeownership.
Please note we also offer these services to businesses.
A home is the biggest purchase many people will ever make, and a home inspection is always recommended before buying a home. It’s important to realize the condition of your investment.
A large part of the home inspection is understanding what is and what isn’t included. Here’s a helpful graphic that shows you what’s covered in a home inspection.
Manufactured Home Foundation Certifications
If you are buying or selling a manufactured home, then most likely a foundation certification will be required. For all FHA and VA loans, an engineer’s foundation certification is required that states that the home is placed on a permanent foundation that complies with the “HUD Permanent Foundation Guide for Manufactured Homes”, dated 1996 by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
We have partnered with the engineers at MFD Home Certifications to provide a turn-key foundation certification service to you. You may place your order online by clicking the link below or by contacting us directly.
