Buying a home is the largest investment you will ever make. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, you will want to learn as much as you can about the house before you buy it.A professional home inspection informs the homebuyer of the property’s condition. Things aren’t always as they seem. If you’re selling your house, getting an inspection before you put your house on the market can help identify and remedy any potential concerns.
Even though you are buying a house As-Is, you should still know what that means. Are you getting a good deal? Are you buying an inexpensive house with a lot of expensive problems? A home inspection will help you determine how much work lies ahead.
Also, if you need to use your home warranty or homeowner's insurance in the future, they will ask for a copy of the home inspection in order to approve your claim.
The cost varies depending on the size, age, and location of the home. We provide free quotes...call us!
Once you factor in the quality of our inspections and reports, paying a little extra to hire us is a no-brainer. If you read through the public online reviews left by our customers HERE on Google and Yelp, you’ll see that we’re not just making this up. Most of our customers are not just satisfied with our service but are delighted, and they say so in their many reviews. In other words, we charge more because we’re well worth it. We also guarantee our work: if our clients aren’t happy with their inspection, they don’t pay us. No fine print.
On average, our home inspections take 1.5 - 2 hours because we send teams of 2 inspectors to every inspection. In some cases, the inspection may be longer or shorter depending on the size and condition of the home.
You are not required to attend the home inspection but we HIGHLY recommend that you do. Usually our clients arrive toward the end of the inspection so we can give you a thorough walkthrough and discuss our findings. After you have seen the property with one of our inspectors, you will find the written report easier to understand.
We guarantee your report will be ready in 24 hours but we generally get them completed same day. If you have an emergency situation and need it asap, let us know and we will try to accommodate your request.
None. As a matter of fact, California doesn't require that home inspectors become certified. Here at Welcome Home Inspections, ALL of our inspector take 120 hours of classes to become certified and complete continuing education annually.

No, under California Law sec 7197 (a)(1) it is illegal for a Home Inspector to work on a house they have inspected within 12 months of inspection. If any home inspector offers to also do repairs, run!
