What to Expect From Your Inspection

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, Reese Home Inspections provides professional and quality service from the moment you call me. As a certified home inspector, I will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. I strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by the Arizona State Board of Technical Registration

After we walk through the home together, I will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. I will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. I will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in my easy-to-read Spectora report, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.

Frequently Asked Questions

An inspection is not required when buying a home. It is highly recommended though as a trained inspector can tell you things that are wrong with the home so that you do not make a large financial commitment only to find out that even more money is needed for repairs.

A home inspection can make the difference in finding your dream home and getting stuck with a nightmare DIY project that could potentially drain your savings account.

When you have an inspection done on a property that you want to purchase, you have a state certified professional go through the home and check all major components and identify deficiencies that could cost you less than a hundred dollars to fix or tens of thousands of dollars to fix.

Home inspections are an inspection of the home at the time of inspection. Here in Arizona, if it has not rained in months, a leaking roof may not be found on the inspection, but certain things like broken roof tile can give you a heads up about potential future problems that can be fixed.

A home inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling and its components.
