Your Inspection

What to expect from your inspection.

Buying a new home? Need a home inspection?

Our inspectors are fully licensed and certified. Each inspection goes through a team of quality assurance professionals that put each inspection through a verification process to ensure the inspection report is done right the first time.

Seller Inspections

​You; as the seller, should have a “Seller Inspection” on your property before putting it on the market.
Benefits of inspection:

  • Awareness of any possible damages or defects
  • Can be utilized as a property condition disclosure
  • Raise the confidence of potential buyers
  • Protect your interests against conflicting inspection reports
  • Assist in obtaining the highest possible property value

We are focused on education, and our goal is to provide you with all of the information you need about the property in question, and its overall condition. We welcome our clients to walk through the home with us and to ask any questions they may have throughout the inspection process.

Silverman Inspections has a thorough, multi-point checklist that ensures that no stone is left unturned, and we will explain the overall, general condition of the home and its systems to you and your agent after your inspection is complete.

In addition, we will compile a comprehensive Spectora report, delivered online via HTML, or in PDF format, documenting all of our findings, and including images, references and further details. This report will be available for you both in a desktop-friendly format and a mobile format, so that you can stay in-the-loop and check your report even when you’re on the go.

    This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior.

    We will examine the foundation, crawlspaces and basements to look for signs of things like past water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, and other such potentially expensive issues.

Why Should I Get a Home Inspection?

Buying a home is a very big investment. Our inspection process guides our expert slowly through the home so you can make an informed decision before you buy. The number one reason to get a home inspection is to identify any possible safety issues or repairs that need to be done before the home is ready to be lived in.
Inspections are useful tools for potential home buyers but they don’t cover everything. Licensed inspectors are looking for safety issues in homes. They don’t check for local building code compliance, give appraisals of the value of a home and an inspection is not a guarantee that nothing will go wrong in the future. The inspection should be used as a way to gauge whether a home is reasonably priced and safe for the home buyer to move into. Inspections are also a prerequisite for most home insurance policies.
