Re-sale Home Inspections
This is the most common type of home inspection performed by Morrow Inspection Services. Sometimes called a pre-sale inspection this type of inspection is normally for a buyer during the real estate transaction process.
Purchasing a house is one of the largest investments most people will make during their lives. At Morrow Inspection Services, we pride ourselves on providing detailed and thorough reports on conditions at the time of inspection, as well as opinions on future performance of the house. All items deemed to be defective or in need of repair at the time of inspection will be included within the inspection report, along with detailed photographs and narratives to illustrate our findings. We understand that every house has problems or defects, and for most problems there are solutions. Some problems will require immediate attention, while others may never actually need repair.
We always suggest that our clients be present for, at minimum, the final walk through with the inspector. This is our opportunity to explain what was found during the inspection and to address any questions or concerns our clients may have. We understand that to many it may be just another house, but to you, it is where you call home.
