Buyer Home Inspection

A Buyer’s Home Inspection or a Pre-Purchase Home Inspection is a non-evasive evaluation of the visible and accessible structure, systems and components of a home.  While a home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists and is not a warranty of the current or future condition of the home, our inspectors are trained to identify material defects within a home that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property as well as those that pose an unreasonable or unsafe risk to the home occupants.

Our Fans

We were very impressed with Sandusky Bay Inspections and Scott, the inspector, who provided a thorough documentation for our review. His customer service was excellent, photographs were taken and emailed to us within 24 hours to show potential problem areas. Websites were provided for further education on problematic areas as well as recommendations for maintenance,
