A home inspection is one of the most important things you can do to when considering a home purchase. It identifies problems, minimizes unpleasant surprises down the road, helps you learn more about a house, and provides overall peace of mind and security.
Are you getting ready to put your house on the market? It’s time for a pre-listing inspection! There are two main reasons a buyer might pull an offer on a house: 1. a low appraisal, and 2. unknown issues that surfaced during the buyer’s home inspection. This can cost you time and money. A pre-listing inspection allows you to set the price of your home, and make any necessary repairs at a lower cost than what a buyer might ask for during negotiations. The inspection report can be used as a marketing tool; homes that have had pre-listing inspections have higher and faster closing rates!

A home inspection is a visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, including the roof, the foundation, and everything in between. This includes:
Heating and air systems
Roof, attic and visible insulation
Walls, ceilings and floors
Windows and doors
Foundation, basement and structural components
Not only does HIC perform the standard examination of structures and systems, we go above and beyond required standards of practice. One example of this: HIC checks all windows, cabinets and outlets—not just the minimum number required by the state. We also help our clients fully understand their inspection reports and prioritize repairs, as we know the results can be overwhelming.
What’s more, you can have peace of mind knowing HIC adheres to the North Carolina Home Inspector Licensure Board Standards of Practice & Code of Ethics.
In addition to a comprehensive home inspection, we also highly recommend radon testing and pest inspections. Additionally, if the home has a well and/or septic system, you may want to consider a septic inspection and testing for well water contaminants. HIC offers all of these inspections.
