Your First Choice For Home Inspection Services

A home inspection service is a professional examination of a property typically performed before a real estate transaction takes place. The main goal of a home inspection is to identify any potential issues or defects with the property so that the buyer can make an informed decision about the purchase.

There are many reasons to choose professional, affordable services from Optima Home Inspections.

Buying a home is a significant investment that should not be taken lightly. A home inspection provides you with the utmost peace of mind by identifying potential issues before you commit to a purchase. We can help you make a more informed decision about whether to move forward with the purchase or negotiate for repairs to be made.

Our home inspectors are thoroughly trained to identify problems invisible to the untrained eye. These include issues with your roof, sewer line inspections, and more. By having a professional inspect the designated property, you can be sure that you are aware of any potential issues before you buy or sell your home. You can also schedule a residential evaluation for the home you currently live in just to ensure that it’s safe.

A home inspection service can help you identify and address problems early on, saving you thousands of dollars in repairs down the road. A home inspection can also help you negotiate for a better price on the home if any prominent issues need to be addressed.

We also offer detailed energy audit services that will help you to lower your operating costs by giving you insights into what’s going on and how you can reduce your energy consumption.

We identify several potential safety hazards during our property assessment. Some of the things we check for in our home inspection service include:

  • Termites
  • Radon gas
  • Sewer line malfunctions
  • Mold
  • Asbestos 
  • And more!

Home sellers must disclose known issues and defects to potential buyers. However, in some cases, the sellers are unaware of specific problems. A home inspection can help you identify any hidden issues and ensure that you are aware of any potential problems before making an offer on your dream home.
