Home Inspectors

The first important step in purchasing a property is to work with your Sarasota Home Realty agent to find the right property and negotiate a contract that meets your needs. However, this is not the only important step in finding the right property. You have to know the condition of the property that you are purchasing. Not knowing the structural condition, possibility of defective drywall, effectiveness of the HVAC system, possible presence of mold, roof condition, etc., can result in unanticipated costs. Nobody needs costly surprises, especially when they can be avoided.

Hiring a home inspector to review the property after contract is a very important part of the purchase process. Inspection lessens the possibility of unexpected surprises after closing. For a cost that normally runs between $300 and $800, an inspector uses his knowlege of construction and the Florida market to assess the functional condition of the property. Depending on the details of the purchase contract, we are often able to negotiate responsibility for functional defect correction to the seller. So, by having the property inspected, te buyer not only becomes better educated on the condition but often benefits from having those defects repaired. 

There are many good property inspectors with a variety of backgrounds, in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Some of the inspectors that we have worked with are listed below. Click on any of the company banners to go directly to each website. Home inspectors are listed in alphabetical order, not in any order of preferance. If you have any questions regarding the use of an inspector for your property purchase, please consult with your Sarasota Home Realty agent.
