Buyers Pre-Purchase Inspections
You are about to make the the largest and most important purchase most of us will ever make!
A Pre-purchase Vancouver Home Inspection can provide you with the information you need to know about the condition of the home you plan to purchase. It makes good sense to have a knowledgeable, an accredited licensed home inspector look over the home carefully and explain their findings to you. The analysis of the property will drastically reduce your risk and will be useful during price negotiations.
Most homes require some updates or repairs. The home inspection report will point out any problem areas, thus avoiding surprises. You will have an idea of what to expect in the way of maintenance and get a chance to familiarize yourself with the safety and maintenance features of your new home.
At the time of the home inspection you will get an in-person explanation of the report and a chance to discuss any concerns you may have. Bring your questions and I’ll do my best to answer all of them!
The exciting time has come. You have picked your new prospective home and want to declare it your own! Give me a call to book your customized Vancouver Home Inspection today!
I work in the Vancouver area and throughout the lower mainland.

Single Family Dwelling Inspection: (Attached & Detached)
A typical house inspection includes a detailed review of the exterior of the home and the property including the garage or carport plus the interior of the home. Major deficiencies will be pointed out along with minor repairs that may be needed to maintain the value of your home.
A typical condominium inspection includes a detailed review of the interior of the unit and a general “walkthrough” of selected accessible common areas of the complex. These include the underground parking area, the general exterior and the roof (if access is provided). The common area “walkthrough” is not designed to generate an all-inclusive list of building flaws but is meant to enable the home inspector to comment on building design features which tend to result in problems as well as the general level of building maintenance.
The information gathered may suggest follow-up questions for clients to ask the vendor of the property, the strata council or the property manager. We strongly recommend that all available information about the building in question regarding past or present problems and planned major expenditures be obtained.
