Pre-Purchase Inspections

When buying a home, you should always have a professional home inspection performed by a certified home inspector. If you are buying a home, you need to know exactly what you are getting. A home inspection, performed by OxBow Home Inspections, will reveal problems with the home so that they may be addressed BEFORE the deal is closed.

When I inspect the home I will look at the systems
that make up the building such as:

Structural elements, foundation, framing etc...

Plumbing systems


Electrical systems

Cosmetic condition, paint, siding etc...

You should require the inspection at the time you make a formal offer.
Make sure that the contract has an inspection contingency! 
Then, hire OxBow Home Inspections and pay close attention to the inspection report. 
If you aren't comfortable with what I find, you may want to re-negotiate the deal, 
or even find a different home.
