How much can I save?
Here are some examples of our clients' savings accompanied by the photos of the related home defects. The amount you can save depends on the condition of the property you are planning to buy and can only be determined after the home inspection is completed. However, these examples should give you an idea.
The dollar amount next to each problem refers to the cost to fix the problem. But because our clients have performed a home inspection before investing in the property, these costs were covered by the home sellers.
