Home Inspections Information

Welcome to St. Louis Inspections – an informative site about inspecting your property.

Please use the
LINKS provided through out the web site and the links to the left of the pages to access information on our web site Buying a home can be every exciting and may be the most expensive purchase you will ever make. The cost of a home inspection is relatively small compared to the cost of the home being inspected. For a buyer, it’s important to make sure that they have as complete a picture as possible of the home so they may make their choice of a home with confidence.  For sellers, it’s important that the inspector provides a report that allows them to anticipate possible problems that could delay or sway potential Buyers decision to buy, and allow you time to get estimates and  make  repairs in a less pressured situation. The inspector works directly for the client.  Their job is to insure that the client understands every item that may be reported.  Their job does not end after the report is completed.  Should you have questions months down the road, you are encouraged to contact the inspector and they should do everything possible to insure that you are completely satisfied with their services. Any time you are buying a home in the St. Louis area or are selling a home in the St. Louis area you need to know every aspect of the home inspection. We take pride in making sure you have plenty of information about the inspection process.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THE INSPECTION AGREEMENT. Before signing and returning your agreement to your inspector, review it carefully and legal counsel is advised.
We encourage property owners, buyers and managers to attend the inspection, take notes and ask questions during the inspection of both the inspector and the current homeowner or property owner. Asking questions can often get things clarified.
