Home Inspection – A Home Inspection is a objective visual Inspection of the physical structure and systems of a house. Buying a house is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. A Home Inspection may identify the need for major repairs. This Inspection is NOT just for buyers, but also sellers. The Home Inspection can identify problems in the making and give the seller the opportunity to make the repairs that are needed to make the house in better selling condition.

4 Point Inspections – The 4 Point Inspection is a visual Inspection on the four major components of your home. The 4 Point Inspection was created after Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida in 1992. It has become a requirement for homes, that are 30 years or older.
