What to Expect From Your Inspection

The Happy Property Inspector believes a home inspection should include testing the water you will drink and the air you will breathe.

These are both included in every home inspection with a 200% Satisfaction Guarantee.

We aim to help you into a home that you trust. From Starter Home to Forever Home, you need to know what you are getting into, and it shouldn’t cost more than you can afford to feel secure.

The home inspection isn’t a pass or fail but rather a snapshot of the current condition of the structural and mechanical components of the home. This way you know what issues the home currently has and what you can expect as far as possible repairs needed. This allows you and your agent to decide if it’s the right home for you or could even be used to negotiate on the purchase price of the home.
I am focused on education, and my goal is to provide you with all of the information you need about the property, and its overall condition. I encourage clients and agents to walk through the home with me and to ask any questions throughout the inspection process.

In addition, I will compile a comprehensive report, delivered online via HTML, or in PDF format, documenting all of the  findings, and including images, references and further details. This report will be available for you both in a desktop-friendly format and a mobile format, so that you can stay in-the-loop and check your report even when you’re on the go.
