Some home sellers opt to conduct a pre-listing inspection so as to be informed about existing and future problems before putting their properties on the market. This is a smart marketing strategy, as you'll know and be able to address problems prior to listing your home for sale. Once the items of concern in the inspection report are attended to, you can provide potential buyers with all the information to ensure them that the property is in sound condition. Furthermore, you'll receive the following benefits:

​    • Discovery and recommended repair of important items before listing your home for sale.

    • Provides you with more information to assist in setting a fair listing price.

    • Allows for more robust disclosure, accurately representing the condition of the home.

    • Helps to attract and motivate qualified buyers.

    • Provides peace of mind and helps to deliver a more timely transaction.

    • Eliminates the need to lower your listing price due to undiscovered defects.

Illegal home Meth labs and smoking of Meth in the home may pose a health threat to unsuspecting home buyers or renters.  Typically, these home based labs have been used to manufacture methamphetamine, commonly referred to as Meth, Crystal Meth, Ice, Speed or Crank.  During the manufacture of Meth and smoking of Meth, small amounts of contaminants may have been left behind on floors, walls, counters, carpets, furniture, sinks, drains and ventilation systems, posing a health threat to unsuspecting children and adults exposed to them.

We recommend to Buyers and Tenants that the home be tested for Meth prior to close of sale or before renting a home or apartment.  We also recommend Sellers and Landlords have their properties tested to help limit liability.

New Construction Inspections

Just because a home is new construction doesn't mean it is free of defects, system, or component problems. An inspection can reveal such things and give you all the information you need to know prior to taking possession. Such inspections are critical to finding problematic areas and are most advantageous during the builder's final walk-through. This will allow you to be informed while in the presence of the builder and provide you with the information you need.

It is always a good idea to have a new construction inspection conducted as early as possible. Any deficiencies found can then be corrected and help you to avoid costly repairs in the future.

Breathing radon in your home can cause lung cancer. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas released in rock, soil and water that can build up to dangerous levels inside any home; this means new and old homes, well sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without a basement. Radon gas is odorless and invisible and the only way to know if your home has a radon problem is to test for it.

Breathing radon can increase your risk of lung cancer. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among people who do not smoke. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer for people who do smoke. EPA estimates that radon causes more than 20,000 deaths from lung cancer each year in the U.S. If you smoke and your home has a high radon level, your risk of lung cancer can increase even more.

We perform Radon testing in accordance with U.S. EPA guidelines for real estate transactions using an *AARST-NRPP approved professional electronic device.

Price: $125.00 - (or $100.00 with home inspection service)

​Includes travel to any location in Kootenai County, Idaho.

*AARST-NRPP (American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists) - (National Radon Proficiency Program).

The single largest purchase (investment) the vast majority of consumers make is a home. We inspect homes of all types and ages to help you make a more informed decision by providing you with a comprehensive home inspection report of the visible and readily accessible systems and components of a home.

We give special attention to identify any property system or component deficiencies which require immediate repair, more evaluation, potential safety hazard, or may become future problems. Every report we create seeks to clearly and objectively identify all areas of concern. We are happy to provide you with any information about the property and its systems, as well as any defects or non-adherence to building safety. We believe a home inspection report provides you with:

    • An objective, detailed examination and report of present conditions.

    • Peace of mind that comes with being informed about the subject property.

    • A list of any current problems or defects present during the inspection.

    • The ability to negotiate a better price (buyer and seller).

​If you are present during an inspection, you'll be informed about the location and operation of water, heat, gas, and electrical shut offs and much more. The inspector will also gladly answer any questions regarding their findings.
