Pre-purchase inspections will prevent you from buying a home sight unseen. Even if you did walk through the home, take pictures, write down measurements to see how your furniture would fit, it’s what you didn’t see that could cause big problems. A home inspection will inform you on the overall condition of the home including things you could only see on the roof with a ladder or from under the home with a flash light and a respirator. If you are ready to buy your dream home and need a pre-purchase inspection, call us today for a free estimate.

Pre-purchase Inspection Services
The most common type of home inspection we do is the pre-purchase inspection. You have found your dream home, it is under contract, and now you need an inspection before closing to make sure you aren’t about to sign on the dotted line without knowing the detailed state of the home.
A home inspection isn’t meant to scare you away from a purchase; no home is perfect after all. The inspection report will inform you of defects and safety concerns from the ground up to the chimney. Once you have all the facts, you can make an informed decision. Our pre-purchase inspection services will cover the following:
- Foundations, slabs, and flooring
- Heating and cooling systems
- Interior and exterior walls
- Insulation and ventilation
- Windows and doors
- Garages and carports
- Overall structure and construction
- And more
We won’t just serve you with a report listing every negative aspect of the home; we will also point out the positives. We will also describe the various components of the home and offer general home maintenance tips. We encourage you to walk through the home with us when we are conducting the inspection.
Remember that no matter what the report says, everything can be fixed - for a price. We recommend once you get the finished pre-purchase inspection report that you research estimated costs of the needed repairs. If you know what is coming around the corner, you will be able to make a more logical decision when it comes to continuing with the plan to purchase the home.
We will never solicit you for repairs after conducting the inspection. Our goal is for you to trust and value the inspection we report. How can you trust that what we are saying is accurate if we are also offering to do the repairs ourselves, for a high price? Everyone at All Tampa Home Inspection adheres to a strict code of ethics. Our reputation and your satisfaction is important to us.
If you are starting your home search, start your search for a home inspector at the same time, that way when you are ready to put in an offer - you already have a home inspector chosen to perform your pre-purchase inspection. If you have any questions about pre-purchase home inspections, feel free to call us.
