Buying a home is probably the largest investment you'll ever make. How can you know exactly what you're buying? A home inspection, from a trusted home inspector, could save you thousands of dollars by uncovering potential issues with the home — before they become your problem.
You probably won't get to meet your home inspector before hiring them, so it's important to find someone who is dependable, trustworthy, and properly certified. Make sure you're hiring a home inspector who’s a good communicator and has your best interests in mind.
We've been certified by the American Home Inspectors Training Institute (AHIT), earned Certified Professional Inspector (CPI) status from the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) and have the experience and knowledge to ensure that you’re armed with the best information possible.
We encourage our clients to be present for the inspection, where we'll educate and familiarize you with your new home. We arrive early for every inspection and will not leave until all your questions have been answered.
We have the experience and knowledge necessary to give you a clear look at the current condition of your home. We combine a formal education with real-world experience in the field to bring a trained perspective to every one of our home inspections.
The value of a home inspection comes from the potential cost of the issues it uncovers. We offer thorough inspections at competitive rates to ensure you get the most value, ultimately saving money and gaining confidence in your purchase.
We understand that you're busy. We'll work with you to schedule your home inspection at a time that works well for you. Although we strongly encourage you to tag along, your presence at the inspection is not required.
Even the most experienced and capable home inspectors are capable of making mistakes. We carry Errors & Omissions insurance, as well as General Liability insurance, so you can rest easy.
It's far too easy to become attached to a home. Our clients not only rely on us to give them our best advice and opinion, but they also want us to understand their home the way they envision it to be. That’s why we're here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.
A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. When communicated properly, the inspection report will arm you with detailed, unbiased information.
We'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. We'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.
Just like any big investment, the prospect of buying a home can be scary. Our goal is to provide you with the best information possible so you can relax knowing you made the right decision. But no matter who you hire, your home inspector is only human. That's why we proudly participate in the Home Buyback Guarantee, backed by InterNACHI. If we miss anything, InterNACHI will buy your home for whatever price you paid for it. Find more information on the buyback program, including terms and conditions.
Buying a new house is scary, especially for first-time home buyers. Many problems can be hidden or require a trained eye to notice. These include rotting floors, structural failures, moisture penetration, mold growth, electrical and fire hazards, and so on. Any one of these problems can turn a home into a money pit, or even put your family in danger. That's where we come in. A professional home inspection from Old Line Home Inspections will help put your mind at ease and make the buying process easier.Get To Know Us
