Home Inspections

Buying a home may well be the largest financial investment you will ever make. Naturally you will want to know as much as possible about the property before you finalize the purchase at closing.

It's important to hire a knowledgeable, independent home inspector for advice on the overall condition of the property. The purchase contract usually requires specific time periods for each inspection, and it's critical that these time frames be met. Usually the cost for any and all inspections and re-inspections are paid by the Buyer. Prices can range from $350 to $500 for whole-house inspections.

Some examples of common inspections are:

Structural - Defects caused by poor construction, soil movement, water or drainage conditions, settlement, fire, etc.

Environmental Hazards - Including asbestos, lead-based paint, radon gas or any other toxic material.

Roof - Can include framing members, decking and shingle condition.

EMP Electrical, Mechanical and Plumbing - Should include electrical and plumbing systems, built-in appliances, heating and cooling systems, swimming pool/spas, sprinkler systems and security systems.

Septic and Wood Burning Systems - Ask if your inspector is licensed to conduct septic and WETT inspections.


Many companies specialize in only one area of inspection and others will group several together and offer a package price. Whichever route you go, assure yourself you're getting the inspections you need. Ask us and we can provide a list of our local trusted partner companies to choose from.

Bryan, Huntsville

We had our first Christmas in our new home this year! Thank you so much for helping us find our perfect place to live.

Emma and Mike, Huntsville

As first time home owners who are new to the area, we had a lot of questions and needed a lot of guidance. Anzie went out of her way to help us find exactly what we wanted, and she also made herself available to us at all hours of the day. Any questions I had she answered, and went way out of her way to make us comfortable and informed. I couldn't have asked for a better experience buying our first home! I would reccomend Anzie and Dolf to anyone!

Erin, Bracebridge

Absolutely amazing people to work with. Dolf and Anzie go above and beyond. If you are looking to deal with a couple who run their business with integrity, honesty and the love of helping people, choose them. You will not regret it! If there were more than 5 stars, they would be receiving them.

Kaitlyn, Port Sydney

They're both very professional and super nice people. They helped us buy our first house 2 years ago and we'd use them again in the future as well. I definitely recommend them to anyone! It was a pleasure working with them.
