We offer inspections of condos, single family homes, multi-unit buildings and small commercial properties for buyers, sellers, condo associations and investors. We discuss the inspection options with each client to make sure we give the maximum value for the cost of the inspection. Fees are based on the type of property inspected and its price. Condo “unit-only” inspections begin at $325.00 and single family homes begin at $475.00. Inspections can normally be scheduled within 24 – 72 hours of your call. At the end of the inspection the findings are reviewed with the client and the final report is emailed within 24 hours, usually the same day.
Photos are also included in the inspection report to enhance the quality of the inspection report making it easier to read and understand. Payments are due at the time of the inspection in the form of cash, check, credit card (3% processing fee added) and Chase Quickpay (Zelle).
Buying a home could be the largest single investment you will ever make. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about the newly constructed or existing house before you buy it. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will know more about the house, which will allow you to make decisions with confidence. If you already are a homeowner, a home inspection can identify problems in the making and suggest preventive measures that might help you avoid costly future repairs. If you are planning to sell your home, a home inspection can give you the opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.
“Should I have my condo inspected?” is a question we hear a lot. Even though the condominium owners association is often responsible for the roof, building exterior, common areas, HVAC and hot water, there are still a lot of components that the condo owner is responsible for. The list of defects we have found in condos would surprise most people. Newer condo units are not exempt from defects either.
Cornerstone offers a high level of inspection expertise to owners and investors of 2 flats, 3 flats and multi-unit apartment buildings. Our computerized inspection report/checklist ensures the same level of thoroughness you get from a one-bedroom condo unit. If available, we will assign multiple inspectors for larger multi-unit buildings increasing the efficiency and reducing the inspection time. Knowing the condition of a building and the units will allow you to budget more accurately and provide for expenditures down the road. Whether it’s a new roof, HVAC or simply maintenance related item, you will know what to expect.
Cornerstone focuses on helping you assess the risks and costs of purchasing a commercial property.
Types of properties we’ve inspected: Restaurants, storage facilities, industrial properties, retail stores, churches, warehouses, medical centers, office buildings, apartment buildings and vacant properties.
Note: Commercial property inspections are limited to the main building systems/components and utilities. Specialized equipment related to any business is not included in our inspection.
