Before, During and After Your Home Inspection
What Happens Before The Inspection
For your convenience, you may schedule your appointment online in under a minute, or you may call (805) 410-8060 to speak with someone.
Whether you schedule your appointment online or over the phone, you will receive a confirmation email within one (1) business day. The confirmation email will have simple instructions, answer your frequently asked questions, and have a link where you can print and/or sign our Inspection Agreement.
We may speak with your realtor before the appointment to confirm details about the property and to ask your realtor to connect with the seller’s agent to ensure the home is ready for an inspection. For instance, if there are dogs, for safety reasons it’s best that the sellers have them secured in a crate or off the property during the inspection to prevent any accidents (e.g. dog slipping through a gate).
Payment in full is due before we begin your inspection. You may pay by credit/debit card, cash or check in person at the inspection.
We send a reminder email 24 hours before the inspection.
What Happens The Day Of Your Home Inspection
Starting on time is vital for our day to go smoothly. We usually have multiple inspections to attend to and as you’ll see in the What To Expect page, there’s a lot to get finished during your inspection.
We will begin the inspection, right on the dot, at the scheduled time. We’ll start with short introductions and double-check all the paperwork and that the payment is fully taken care of. Your inspector will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
We start the home inspection on the exterior of the home and you are invited to join us during the entire inspection. (Side-note for real estate professionals: If the buyers or other people are inside the home, it may be a good idea to remind them to draw the curtains and/or shut your blinds until they are fully dressed.)
What Happens After Your Home Inspection
Within two (2) business days we will email you and your realtor access to your electronic home inspection report. You may view a sample report here.
We are available to you by phone or email for any last minute or additional questions that may come up.
Did you know? If the home falls out of escrow for any reason, we offer a complimentary 25% loyalty discount on your next inspection with Executive Home Inspection Group.
If any repairs are made to the dwelling within 30 days of the original inspection and you’d like for us to stop by and give our professional feedback on the outcome, that’s always complimentary when reasonable.
