Residential Inspections

A home inspection reveals the condition of the home and identifies the need for any repairs before you buy or sell. The inspection process also informs the buyer of the positive aspects of the home, as well as any maintenance that may be recommended to keep the house in good shape and to keep all major systems operating smoothly. A home inspection is powerful tool for identifying any potential problems that may need to be addressed, as well as for learning preventive maintenance measures to help avoid any costly future repairs.

For buyers

Purchasing a home is one of the largest investments of your life, so buyers should be proactive in inspecting the condition of the home prior to purchase. Knowing what to expect both inside and outside of the home will help you make an informed decision about your purchase. Whether the home is new or previously owned, there may be concerns that are not visible to the untrained eye. A PINPOINT Precision Inspection identifies problems and informs you on the health of your home. An inspection before the purchase can save you money on potentially large future repair costs and provides comfort in the quality of your investment. A home inspection accomplishes two important goals. First, it allows the buyer to evaluate the condition of the house, its structural soundness, and the condition of its mechanical systems. Second, it allows the buyer to notify the seller of any problems so repairs can be negotiated prior to closing the sale. An extensive inspection includes a visual examination of the structure from top to bottom, including the foundation, basement/crawlspace, floors, walls, ceilings, windows, doors, garage/carport, roof, attic, plumbing, electrical systems, heating, air conditioning systems and appliances. Our PINPOINT inspectors will provide a detailed report that we review with the buyers and address any concerns or questions the inspection report raises for the buyers.

For Sellers

Have you examined your attic or crawlspace? Have you tested your GFCI receptacles? Have you checked your plumbing, electrical and other systems? A seller should know the condition of the home before placing it on the market. A PINPOINT inspection may help identify problems that could deter buyers and allow the seller to make the repairs prior to listing. An inspection may also help reveal the positive features that can be included in your listing. Our inspection helps avoid costly last minute repairs, eliminates hassles that could delay closing, and allows the seller to have more control over the sales process by avoiding unexpected surprise problems.


Inspections vs Appraisals

Both home inspections and appraisals are a very important part of the home buying or selling process. PINPOINT provides home inspections. In simple terms, an inspection provides information about the health of your home.  

A home appraisal tells you about the value of your home. The best sales people know their product better than anyone else, and that's why it's important to use both the inspection and the appraisal as tools for buying and selling properties.

A PINPOINT Precision Home Inspection is an in-depth, unbiased visual observation of readily accessible areas of the property and its systems as required by the South Carolina Residential Builders Commission.
