Home Inspector

Memphis, TN & Mississippi

As an experienced home inspector in Memphis, TN, I provide complete and thorough property inspections for both homeowners and home buyers. I have served throughout the Memphis area since 1996.

When performing my inspections, I will check out every area of your home while also testing all systems and fixed appliances. I do this to simulate how you might operate your home under normal conditions to look for issues or flaws.

After my inspection is complete, I will report my findings verbally to you, while also providing you with the written results. There will also typically be 80 - 150 pictures to visualize the condition of your property. The goal of my reports is to help you make an informed decision before buying or selling your home. Contact my office today to learn more about my home inspections or to schedule my services.

Information for First-Time Home Buyers

While buying your first home is an exciting endeavor, you should never make a final offer without first having the property thoroughly inspected. As a licensed home inspector, I can give you the peace of mind that the property is safe to move into and ready for your family.

Additionally, if the utilities at the property have been off for six months or longer, than code safety inspection may be required before they can be turned back on. By taking care of this before finalizing your purchase, you can save time and prevent any future issues later.
