It’s important to keep things in perspective… Most homes have conditions that need attention. The question is, what and how serious are these conditions? We will answer these questions and explain their solutions so that you can make an informed decision before purchasing a home.
A home inspection for buyers is performed with a systematic approach, breaking down the house as a whole into systems and components. Every inspection is accompanied by an inspection report that can be downloaded from our website, emailed or printed.
Our property inspections are non-destructive examinations of the systems and structures of a home, from the roof to the foundation. We perform every inspection in accordance with Oregon Administrative Rules Division 8 Chapter 812.
A home inspection for buyers in Portland, Oregon takes about 2-4 hours depending on the size and complexity of the home. During this time, we will be evaluating important elements of the home, such as:
- Grounds (Landscaping and Grading as related to impact on structure)
- Exterior surfaces
- Windows & Doors
- Interior Rooms
- Electrical Systems
- Heating & Cooling System (HVAC)
Thompson Home Inspection, LLC will reveal any important issues that may need attention and can suggest solutions and maintenance programs. The property inspection will provide you with valuable information that will give you greater confidence in negotiations. A walk through at the end of the inspection with the prospective buyer is strongly encouraged. This allows us to present a much greater appreciation and understanding of the home’s condition and details found in the report. If the buyer cannot be present, a telephone appointment or meeting at our office can be made in order to discuss the report.
