+ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A visual-only non-invasive inspection of the property for the purposes of identification and description of the condition of a property, including documentation with photos and any ancillary services requested.
Generally- everything possible! I start with an exterior walk-around, then inspect the roof system, basement, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and interior room-by-room. As I proceed through the inspection, I document my observations throughout the property.
YES! I encourage you to attend the last 1 hour if possible, so we can go over the results of the inspection and do a walk-through with me before I prepare the report. If you want to attend the entire inspection, please let me know when you schedule, so we can schedule additional time with the seller for the inspection.
Normally a single unit property under 1500 sq ft is 2-3 hours to inspect and generate the report. I will send the report as a PDF via email - normally reports are delivered on the day of the inspection. Larger homes or businesses take additional time to inspect, and are priced by square footage.
You can call, text, email, or schedule online at your convenience. I will contact the sellers’ agent and reserve a time to perform the inspection based on your request and the property availability. Please make sure I can contact you- I will send out a reminder of the scheduled appointment ahead of time, and we should be communicating to arrange the details. I MUST HAVE A SIGNED COPY OF THE PRE-INSPECTION AGREEMENT TO PERFORM THE INSPECTION. Use the link at the top of the page to go to NACHI.org and sign the agreement using your email address to find your Pre-Inspection Agreement.
The inspection cost varies with the size of the home, outbuildings and distance from ZIP Code 55417,starting at $450 for a complete home buyers inspection.
Contact me for an inspection price. You can either pay ahead or at the inspection if you will attend. I accept PayPal, cash, and credit cards at the time of the inspection. The inspection fee must be paid before we discuss the results of the inspection, and the full report will come shortly after.
Radon - MN will require licensure starting Jan 1, 2019. Ask me about radon testing if the seller has not tested previously for radon levels. Sewer inspection is not included. If you would like a name of someone to do this, ask me!
Warranty of any component or system - This is an inspection, and the report is detailing the condition of the property at the time of the inspection, without warranty to any device or condition noted in the report. I cannot see into the future. Components or appliances can and do fail at random. There are home warranties available, but my inspection is a check of function on the specific date/time I do the inspection.
A complete written document sent by email in PDF format, with detailed descriptions and annotated pictures. Generally they are around 50-60 pages in length, and include a copy of the InterNACHI Standards of Practice that I use to inspect the property.
Yes, I offer thermal imaging and drone exterior inspections are coming soon.
