can help you make an informed decision.

What is a Home Inspection?

A Carson Dunlop home inspection is a visual evaluation that

  • Assesses the condition of the home
  • Identifies components that are not performing
  • Describes items that are near the end of their life
  • Includes ballpark costs for repairs
  • Sets out maintenance tips to protect your investment

A home inspection is essential for any home property purchase. Protect yourself by getting the information that you need to make an educated decision.

  5. Buyers, sellers and realtors ♥ our service
    Don’t take our word for it, here’s what real clients are saying about our home inspections:

The engineer assigned was on time, friendly and, most importantly, knew his stuff. He identified a few areas to be addressed, but the most important was the condition of the roof. As a result, my real estate agent was able to negotiate an entire new roof into the sale, instead of getting a very nasty (and potentially very expensive) surprise.
