WIN HOME INSPECTION

WIN’s very comprehensive home inspection is for the client who would like a thorough analysis of most major details of the home. It is an inspection of the home's major systems which caters to the client who is concerned not only with the systems that make the home habitable, but also provides a list of the many small items that may need attention after moving into the home. This visual home inspection includes over 300 items, from the foundation to the roof and all the major systems of the house including electrical, plumbing and heating/air conditioning.
  • Foundation
  • Structure
  • Basement or crawl space
  • Interior and exterior walls
  • Siding
  • Water heater
  • Heating and air conditioning systems
  • Electrical system
  • Plumbing system and fixtures
  • Porches and decks
  • Attic
  • Roof
  • Gutters
  • Fireplace and exterior chimney
  • Interior and exterior doors
  • Interior stairway components
  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens

Condominium/Townhome Inspection

Like houses, condos and townhouses should also be inspected before purchase. WIN’s extensive inspection of the condominium or townhouse interior reviews the structure, mechanical, and plumbing, electrical and heating/AC systems within the unit, along with any built-in appliances. This inspection takes the home inspector 1 to 2 hours to complete and will provide you with peace of mind in knowing that the unit is sound.

Duplex/Multiplex Inspection

We provide comprehensive inspections for multi-unit properties (duplexes, multiplexes, etc.). Similar to a standard or extended full home inspection, this inspection reviews all visual aspects of the individual units of a property, as well as all shared major systems and structural components.

Manufactured/Mobile Home Inspection

There are many aspects of manufactured and mobile homes that differ from a permanent residence. Similar to a standard or extended full home inspection, the home inspector reviews all visual aspects of all major systems and structural components of the home, as well as items specific to these types of homes including proper bracing and/or anchoring, permanent bolt-on systems and any towing, axles, or vehicular features.

Pre-Offer Inspection

More common in competitive real estate markets with multiple offers, this preliminary, information-only home inspection evaluates a home’s major systems and any potential issues, giving home buyers the information to make an informed decision on whether to place an offer on a property. Pre-offer home inspections take about an hour and are a valuable option in time-sensitive situations. Not available at all WIN locations.

Home Buyer Consultation

We provide home buyer consultations for homes that have already been inspected by WIN. We will review and explain the home inspection report and answer any questions you may have.

Pre-Listing Inspection

A WIN pre-listing home inspection provides you with comprehensive information on the current condition of your home and includes recommendations for property repairs and enhancements to improve the home’s value and marketability. You can work with your real estate agent to either decide which areas to improve before putting the house on the market, or to adjust the sale price to reflect any costs of repairs that would be revealed in a home inspection performed later by a potential home buyer during the contingency process. And if you’ve maintained and updated your home over the years, a pre-listing home inspection report serves as a valuable sales tool documenting the attention to detail and care you’ve taken in protecting your investment. WIN's pre-listing home inspection includes over 300 items, from the foundation to the roof and all the major systems of the house - electrical, plumbing and heating/air conditioning. The inspection takes the home inspector between 2 and 2 1/2 hours depending on the size of the home. Items inspected include:
  • Foundation
  • Structure
  • Basement or crawl space
  • Interior and exterior walls
  • Siding
  • Water heater
  • Heating and air conditioning systems
  • Electrical system
  • Plumbing system and fixtures
  • Porches and decks
  • Attic
  • Roof
  • Gutters
  • Fireplace and exterior chimney
With a pre-listing home inspection from WIN you will receive:
  • A comprehensive WIN Home Inspection Report prepared by a highly trained WIN home inspector, delivered within 24 hours (next business day)– often times the same day.
  • A Positive Features Summary highlighting the special qualities of your home that are of interest to prospective buyers.
