Home Inspection NY

Buyers Home Inspection

Buying a home is one of the biggest and most expensive financial decisions of your life. We encourage you to be present at the inspection (if you are able to be there) to walk around the house with the home inspector during the inspection. This allows you to ask any questions you may have about the home you are buying.

Inspections include all visible and readily accessible areas of the structure listed below. We will also go over tips on how to maintain your home. After the inspection is complete, you will receive your inspection report, which is available digitally and in print. We are here before, during, and long after the inspection is complete to assist you with any of your Inspection needs.

All home inspections are completed to the expectation set forth by the NYS Standards of Practice (SOP). Those standards can be found here.

Buyers Residential Consultation

Your local market is on fire! There are simply too few houses and too many buyers. Your agent is recommending you skip the inspection or face losing the house of your dreams to another buyer! What can you do?

You are about to make the biggest financial decision of your life! Taking the risk on an "as-is" house could pay off or it might help you buy your own personal money pit.

At Home Inspection NY we understand the pressure to buy and we are excited to offer some help with your concerns. We offer in-person walking consultations with you in your favorite house. We like to think of it like Google or Amazon reviews. Get an experienced inspector's eye to look over your shoulder. Sure, it isn't as in-depth as a home inspection but it could save you hundreds of dollars and it will provide peace of mind.

Additional Services for Buyers

You may be asking if I am paying for a home inspection why are there additional services? That's a great question. New York State has created the Standards of Practice (SOP) for home inspectors. Those standards can be viewed here. The standards were established to protect home buyers by creating a minimum standard or expectation for a home inspection. No buyer, having paid for a home inspection will receive less than the SOP's in NYS by an NYS licensed inspector. At Home Inspection NY we don't settle for the minimum, we go above and beyond, but not all homes require the additional services that we provide. We could just bundle it all together, but without fail our clients would end up paying for services you don't need. For those clients that do need the additional services, we offer discounts for additional services scheduled with a residential home inspection.

Radon Sampling

A short-term (48 hour) test is performed to determine the possible presence of elevated levels of radon gas per EPA and ANSI-AARST real estate transaction recommendations. Our inspectors are NRPP Certified and AARST compliant. We use state-of-the-art equipment that is registered and calibrated per industry guidelines. Home Inspection NY will also provide guidance and recommendations for mitigation in the event that you receive results above the EPA recommended action level.
