An NPI inspector has the knowledge to:

  • Reveal items that went unnoticed upon first glance
  • Answer questions you may have regarding the history of the home, such as the age of the home, age of the roof and other past concerns
  • Unveil items that require repair that the bank will not fix, allowing you to calculate the maintenance budget in advance

For Home Buyers

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments you will make. For peace of mind, it’s important to understand everything possible regarding the home you are about to purchase. NPI property inspections are designed to meet strict industry standards and cover all major systems in the home.

A property inspection should be ordered immediately after reaching a written purchase agreement with the seller. Most real estate purchase agreements include a clause making the purchase contingent on a home inspection.

For Home Sellers

Whether selling your own home or using a Realtor, having a home inspection report available for interested buyers can help sell your home faster. NPI’s home seller’s inspections include:

  • Pre-listing inspections: Research shows eight out of 10 home buyers nationwide obtain a home inspection.
  • For Sale by Owner inspections: After deciding to sell your own home, it’s important to make sure it’s in the best possible condition so you can be confident in front of prospective buyers.

An NPI prelisting inspection can help you:

  • Raise buyer confidence and trust
  • Receive top dollar for your home
  • Sell your home faster
  • Avoid closing delays
  • Reduce liability through full disclosure
  • Provide proof to the buyer of your home’s condition
  • Be alert to safety concerns that may be an immediate concern to your family
  • Fix minor maintenance issues for better showing results
