What is a Home or Property Inspection?  

A home or property inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of a subject property resulting in a written report about its condition. Inspections are most always performed in conjunction with the sale of a house or a commercial property, typically after the offer has been accepted but before closing. A successful property inspection should be a contract contingency.  

Why get one?

A home or property inspection can help you to make an informed decision. Protecting your financial (and emotional) investment starts with a complete Property Inspection, including Radon Testing and Well Water Testing if necessary.

Our reports will help you to obtain a full understanding of the property condition, before your inspection deadline passes.

If you're considering buying real estate, a Twin State Inspections Property Report will give you detailed knowledge of your investment.  Nothing can compete with the value provided by your Inspection Report. We work with first time home buyers, veterans, experienced buyers, and commercial investors.
