What is a Pre-purchase Home Inspection


A pre-purchase (or homebuyers) home inspection is your home's health report card. It's a step-by-step analysis and report of a home's overall structure, systems, functionality and performance to help you see the true value of a potential home. It can also help identify any major issues, as well as where you might need to invest your money in first for your home's immediate or future repair-all crucial information, especially during renegotiations.
More Info

A MIKE HOLMES Pre-Purchase Home Inspection examines a home's systems and components, including their health, safety, durability, expected maintenance and lifespan.
We look at:


Why do I need a pre-purchase home inspection?

1. Protect Your Investment
The value of a home can significantly change due to problems you might not be able to see. A pre-purchase home inspection reduces the risk of unexpected and costly surprises, so you can feel confident in your investment. In fact, many clients have saved thousands of dollars during renegotiations, while others have avoided buying a "money pit" altogether.
2. Protect Your Family
We spend more time in our homes than we do any other place. A pre-purchase home inspection helps ensure your home is safe and your family's health is protected. This includes using specialized tools and techniques to make sure your home's structure is strong, its construction is sound, and the air inside is clean and well maintained.

What can I expect?

Our Approved Inspectors will examine the home and look for potential risks to your health and your investment, both immediate and long-term. This includes evaluating:
  • Overall home safety
  • Future renovation costs
  • Roof upgrades and/or roof repair
  • Leaky basement risk
  • Electrical wiring safety
  • Foundation durability
  • Air filtration maintenance
  • Furnace & heating efficiency
  • Appliances & performance
  • Structural integrity
  • Plumbing & fixtures
  • Ventilation systems & optimization
  • Insulation & vapour barriers
  • Window installation & performance

How long does a pre-purchase home inspection take?

Most home inspections are done within 2 hours, but our inspectors will spend approximately 3 - 4 hours examining a home, depending on its size and age. Older homes typically have more issues to address, and therefore usually require more time to fully inspect properly.
