Buying a home is like a long journey. It’s exciting to consider a new place, a new adventure. At the same time, it’s wearing and stressful. You’ll visit several homes before settling on the one home that’s right for you. You’ll talk with real estate agents, and financial institutions, and spend plenty of time negotiating an offer, before, finally, the keys are in your hand and you’re ready to move in. As all this is going on, you’re thinking about where you’re going to be living, how beautiful the home is, and where you’re going to put the living room sofa.

A pre-listing report serves as a marketing tool, and can be made available once the home is placed on the market.

INTELLISPECT PROPERTY INSPECTION GROUP has been in business since 2002. In that time we have inspected thousands of residential and commercial properties throughout the DFW Metroplex. We have the experience, knowledge, and skills to make a thorough investigation of a home. We stay up to date on building codes and standards, stay informed about currents in home construction, and understand how all the systems within the home interrelate. We understand, for instance, that inadequate insulation will affect how the home’s heating and cooling system runs and uses energy. We understand how leaks can remain hidden for months and create the kind of moisture build-up that leads to mold growth and structural damage.
Moreover, you can trust INTELLISPECT PROPERTY INSPECTION GROUP to provide you with a highly detailed narrative report. While regulations require all inspectors to provide a written report, the details supplied will vary from service to service. Some inspectors will just provide a handwritten report with check boxes indicating areas inspected, or they will provide you...more
