Pre-purchase Inspection

An inspection with Mountain View Home Inspections will provide you with greater knowledge, negotiating power and peace of mind about your potential purchase.


A pre-purchase inspection from Mountain View Home Inspections will allow you to make a well informed buying decision. We will thoroughly inspect your prospective home and provide you with a detailed written report, along with high-quality color photos.

This is your opportunity to negotiate a fair deal with the seller on a home that has deferred maintenance, an opportunity to forecast your upcoming expenses, and, in some cases, pinpoint any issues that should keep you from buying the house.

It’s also your opportunity to learn about spaces in the house that you likely have not viewed – such as the crawlspace! Often people live in a home for years without seeing the crawlspace, and there can be expensive issues down there. A common example is to find ductwork in the crawlspace disconnected – you move in and are now paying to heat the crawlspace. And that’s one of the easier issues we find; some are more complicated and more expensive to fix.

And, if you are buying the house as a rental, a safety focused inspection can protect you in terms of liability.  Do you have a self-closer on the garage door? Do you have an anti-tip device on your oven? Do you have smoke detectors in every room? Are proper guardrails on decks and staircases in place? We go above and beyond for you whether you are a prospective landlord or intend to make the house your home.
