You have to decide to buy a home, the biggest investment of your life, during a 15 minute showing and without an inspection condition?😯😯😯

You spend more time deciding what shoes to buy, and you can return them if they don't fit.🤔🤔 🤔

Think about that for a minute!! 💭

WE KNOW YOUR CLIENTS ARE FRUSTRATED!!

The real estate market is very challenging right now with multiple offers and buyers are feeling very frustrated that they have very limited options when it comes to an inspection. We understand this frustration and our effort is to help in any way we can.

Our company and our inspectors strictly abide to the CSA A 770 National Canadian Standards of home inspections, that do not permit short inspections or walkthroughs without reports. These standards have been set in place to protect all the parties involved and especially the buyers. Unprofessional Inspectors who perform this type of "inspections", are giving buyers false peace of mind.

For all your clients that decide to purchase a home without an inspection, we are offering a $40 discount coupon* for a Home Maintenance Review , right after closing and when they have possesion of the house. With a Home Maintenace Review, your client can have an idea of what will be needed to do in the home in terms of maintenance, repairs and life expectancy of components. It is also an opportunity to get educated about the different components of the home and how they work. Mention the coupon at the time of the booking.

As always, the Home Inspection Services Group is here for you and is your partner in these difficult times.
*This offer is valid for any inspection package and ONLY for POST CLOSING Home Maintenance Reviews.
*This offer is not valid for pre listing inspections and typical conditional offer inspections.
*A Home Maintenance Review, does not include RecallCheck and the 90 Day Home Buyers Warranty.

Same basement, two completely different things and two different solutions.

On the top picture is moisture absorption from the hairline crack. Hairline cracks can absorb moisture, given certain conditions at the exterior, like negative grading.

On the bottom picture is condensation stains from the older 4 ft insulation on the wall. This is very common with homes of this age and this type of Insulation. This is the reason why the insulation requirements for basements have changed over the years.

Just imagine how many offers you are leaving off the table when not allowing a Pre-offer Inspection or don't have a pre-listing Inspection.

There are many buyers out there who refuse to go in a bidding war without an inspection.

The math doesn't lie!!

When buying an older home with a fuse panel, the number one priority is replacing the panel.⚡⚡

Wrong fuses, scorched connections and in general a 50 year old electrical installation is not safe for any property.🔥🔥

Leave the painting and the kitchen counter for after. 😉

Two Certified Master Inspectors at one Inspection? There must be a reason for that!✅

Our team was entrusted to inspect 2 Winterlude Crt in Kleinburg. An 11,000 sq ft mansion with an indoor basketball Crt, complex electrical system, geothermal systems and much more.🏠

One of the most beautiful homes we have inspected.♥️

Can you do a 1 hour or 30 minute inspection?

We get this question almost every single day. The answer is and always will be NO.

Anything that doesn't take the required amount of time to do a proper inspection is NOT an inspection.

Buyers who choose to do this, are getting false peace of mind and the liability is great for all parties involved, including the sellers and the real estate agents involved.

What better closing gift than a home inspection? 🏠

Our agent partner will always give this gift to her clients when they buy a house firm.

In this market, your clients will surely appreciate the gift.🎁

An inspection is not always about finding deficiencies. Most people just want to be educated and have good knowledge of the property the are buying. A 15 or 30 minute showing does not give people the sense of confidence and peace of mind.

We are here for your clients before and after the real estate transaction.

Whether you’re buying, leasing or renewing a lease for a commercial property, an inspection report is VITAL to your negotiations and your budgeting for improvements or repairs. 🛠

Our Commercial Inspection services include small & medium sized commercial properties, storefronts, multi-unit residential properties and any other buildings deemed for commercial use. 🏢

Commercial Inspections are very different than residential both in process and report preparation. Pricing of Commercial Inspections is based on size and complexity of the property and what is agreed upon with the client.

A Post Remediation air quality test is a must when dealing with high levels of mold inside a home.

We took Air Samples in December pre remediation and we are taking samples now after all the work was completed.

Comparison of the two reports will show us the results of the remediation.

This is a constant discussion we have with people and contractors about the so called "Frost Free valves".

There should always be a shut off valve inside the house, because these valves can fail, just like this one. If there is a drip of water that is freezing, then this means that the valve is not completely shut off. An interior shut off valve costs nothing as compared to the damage that can be caused when this valve leaks

I have seen these valves open up when they freeze and the result is not the best.

This house has over $200,000 worth of upgrades, renovations and designer fixtures.

It also has mold in the attic due to condensation from heat loss.

When you're buying a house without condition of inspection because it looks pretty this is what you may miss.

If you bought a house in multiple offers without an inspection, do one right after closing. At least you catch this before it becomes even worse.
