LA Home Inspection

Whether you’re buying a new home or investment property, planning a renovation, or are working to settle an estate, let us help you thoroughly understand your future home’s condition, reducing the chance that your dream home will turn out to be an expensive nightmare. internachi_home inspection A professional home inspection enhances most real estate transactions. It also protects the interests of all parties involved.

The objective of the home inspection is to provide the buyer with a better understanding of the house. It may dispel many of the anxieties held by the average purchaser. The inspection is more of an educational seminar than a negative critique of your home. The inspector will review the functional aspects of your home: (i.e.) all exterior elements, the structure, the heating, plumbing and electrical systems. Cosmetic issues like carpet condition or surface scratches on wall and ceilings are not the focus.
