Many Sellers don’t want to spend any money when listing their homes and they often think there are no defects within their home. But ask them… “When was the last time you walked on your roof, crawled through your attic, took the cover off your electrical panel, or looked at the coils in your A/C system… are you sure there are no defects?”
1- Save money on repairs
2- Avoid delays in closing
3- Reduce or eliminate last-minute negotiations on price or repairs
4- Get top dollar for the home
BUILDERS & CODE INSPECTORS DON'T FIND EVERYTHING...
1 - Missing insulation in portions of attic and other areas
2 - Incorrectly wired electrical outlets
9 - Slab lippage, where the slab extends beyond the exterior wall
10 - Garage door safety function not working properly
(That you won’t see, and Sellers often don’t know exist)
When you are searching for a new home you aren’t climbing on the roof or through the attic or checking that all the appliances and electrical outlets work. But our inspectors check more than 300+ items in a typical home. Below are just a few of the issues that we often find during an inspection. Many of which a home owner living in the house didn’t even know were a problem.
1. Torn Duct Work in attic- Repairing or replacing the ducts can be costly but this problem can cause higher energy bills, overwork the system, distribute debris/dust from attic into home and clog up the filter.
Below is a pre-inspection checklist of simple things to be completed prior to a home inspection, which can be printed off and shared. These simple items are easy to do, but are a lot of times forgotten about.
Save yourself time and stress by completing these simple tasks before your home is inspected.

Here's how it works:
Products and materials present in our homes are constantly emitting chemicals, called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCS) into the air. Exposure to VOCs can cause numerous health issues, from headaches and nausea to respiratory and digestive irritation to asthma exacerbation. Hope Home Inspections wants to ensure that homes are in good working condition and safe for our customers. That is why we have invested in the equipment to provide indoor air quality tests that will give you a total assessment of the air in your new home.
IF THERE WERE A WAY TO ENSURE YOU ARE BREATHING HEALTHY AIR IN YOUR HOME, WOULDN’T YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT?

Home Inspection: what it is… what it is not … and how to get the most out of it!
What it IS:
Building your dream home can be a very exciting time, but not realizing there are issues with your home until after closing can leave you with thousands in repair bills and in extreme frustration. Having your home inspected during the construction period and/or once the home is completed can identify these smaller issues before they become much larger problems. Some of the most seen issues with new construction homes by our inspectors are:
Having your new home inspected could save to thousands in repairs later down the road. Hope Home Inspections offers new construction inspections for the pre-dry stage, which allows the inspector to examine features present behind the walls, as well as, a final home inspection which is done once the home is completely move-in ready. With each of these inspections you will receive about a 25-30-page report detailing 300+ items delivered the next business day.
If you are interested in scheduling a new construction inspection please call our office at 941-773-1144 and our friendly office staff will be happy to assist you.
