Come Home to Peace of Mind
Your home is likely to be the largest single investment you ever make. Whether buying or selling, close the deal with confidence knowing your home has been inspected by a qualified, professional home inspector.
What Is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a visual examination of the main components of a home’s major systems. Our team of certified home inspectors – registered with the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors – has conducted more than 50,000 inspections, meaning we have the experience and perspective to give you real insight into the condition of these systems and identify any major deficiencies that need to be addressed.
A standard Property Inspection Network home inspection takes two to three hours. At the end, we give you an onsite summary chart and an extensive 110-page home inspection report.
Why Do I Need a Home Inspection?
Even small improvements can greatly impact the condition of your home – and its sale price. For sellers, having an inspection done before you list allows you to make repairs ahead of time so that any defects don’t become negotiating stumbling blocks. An inspection can also encourage buyers to waive their inspections contingency and reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
For buyers, a pre-listing home inspection can help you assess the condition of the home – and knowing this information ahead of time can be a significant bargaining chip when making offers.
