Mercer Inspection Services provides complete and point inpections of residential homes. I inspect homes for potential buyers, sellers, and brokers. For home owners not interested in selling, I offer point inspections (e.g., roof, foundation, electrical, plumbing) for a nominal fee. The types of home inspections I perform are listed below, and a generalized list of what an inspection includes can be found on the Inspection Scope page and pricing on the Fees page of this site.
- Homebuyer’s pre-closing inspections
Sometimes referred to as a “general home inspection,” these are booked prior to closing on either brand new or existing housing. The inspection covers hundreds of components in the home and includes a written report clearly outlining safety concerns and the current condition of the home. The report gives buyers the information they need to make the best decision and prepare for future maintenance.
- Homeseller’s pre-listing inspections
A general home inspection completed prior to listing or selling the home to give current owners an idea of maintenance items to address. A pre-listing inspection also helps inspire confidence in prospective buyers regarding the condition of the home and reduce time spent in contract negotiation because an unbiased, independent inspector has reviewed all major systems.
- Employee relocation home inspections
Time is generally of the essence when a family is relocated for business purposes. Prior to beginning negotiations for purchase of a home, relocation companies generally order a home inspection to determine the need for repair and maintenance.
