Quality Home Inspections in Portland and Beaverton

Certified Home Inspections

When buying or selling a home in Oregon, it is crucial to have a quality home inspection. A quality home inspection gives you an idea of what needs to be fixed.


It is essential to have a certified home inspector do the inspection. To be clear a certified home inspector has been trained to inspect homes and will know what to look for. Ensure you get a copy of the inspection report to refer to when making repairs or negotiating with the seller.


A home inspection enables you to make a more informed choice regarding the house you’re thinking about purchasing. A home inspector can spot any problems and give you a clearer picture of the property’s expected continuing maintenance needs. An advanced home inspection can prevent thousands of dollars in unanticipated repairs when buying a home.


Finding problems with the home itself is the aim of a home inspection. Inspectors won’t advise you on the property’s sale price or tell you if you’re getting a fair bargain.
