Pre-Bid Home Inspection
I perform full home inspections before you even submit your bid. Why? Because it greatly increases your chances of getting that house and allows you to confidently submit your bid. In bidding war situations this is one of your best options to make sure you get your dream home.
Due to the time sensitivity of Pre-Bid inspections please call or email me to see if I can set one up for you!
Pricing same as full home inspection.
Radon inspection not available with pre-bid inspections. Can be scheduled later.
Sellers PRE-LISTING INSPECTION
Have a Certified Professional Inspector walk through your home to look for any big issues/deal breakers before you put your
home on the market. This is a great idea if
you want to avoid any big surprises when a potential buyer is doing a home inspection on your home.
Does not include a written report.
Visual inspection and recommendations

Full Pest Inspection (Termites and WDI) $75
We are always looking for pests and specifically wood destroying insects during our home inspections. If we find them we will let you know! The full pest inspection will provide a report on an official form if requested. We will look for evidence (damage or treatment) of any past infestation, look for any signs of a current infestation and also point out areas where a future infestation could occur.
Sewer Video Scope
We partner with Lake Michigan Mechanical (LMM) to offer a full sewer scope. We will schedule one of their licensed technicians to come out and fully analyze the sewer line from the home all the way out to the city's main during your home inspection. If any repairs are needed they can provide a quote for repair or replacement! To learn more about LMM click here. This service is only provided within a 30 minute radius of Grand Rapids.
If mold is found during the home inspection one or more samples can be sent to a lab to analyze what type of mold it is. Results are ready in approximately 72 hours. In most cases though mold is caused by a moisture issue and once the moisture is mitigated the mold can be fairly easily removed in most cases. Pricing varies by the amount of samples but is normally around $100 per sample.
Home Energy Score
During the home inspection your homes energy efficiency will be scored on a 1 to 10 scale by using the Home Energy Score developed by the DOE. This tool will help you estimate utility costs and will give you advice on how to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient. Blower door testing is an additional $125 if done with Home Energy Score.
