Buying or selling a home is an intimidating task. For most people, buying a home is one of the biggest investments of their lives. If you’re in the market for a home in Richmond, Charlottesville, or the surrounding areas, schedule a home inspection with Burgess Inspections, Inc. before signing. We’re here for all of your home inspection needs, including pre-purchase inspections, pre-listing inspections, and new-home warranty inspections.

Home Inspection

Pre-Purchase Inspection

Finding the right home in the right neighborhood at the right price is a major challenge. Often, buyers get so excited to find a home that meets their criteria that they leap before they look. Unfortunately, time and again, this mistake ends up costing the homeowner thousands of dollars down the road. Before signing for your new home, schedule a home inspection with Burgess. We’ll go over the grounds and home from top to bottom and identify any issues so you are able to negotiate the best terms possible.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Similarly, as a seller, you want to get the best possible price for your home. Avoid unpleasant surprises and last-minute negotiations by scheduling a pre-listing inspection. Our team will make you aware of any major issues or necessary fixes you should make before listing your home. This gives you the best chance of selling your home at asking price and instills confidence in potential buyers.

11th Month New-Home Construction Warranty Inspection

Many home construction companies offer a one-year warranty on new homes. Before this expires, we recommend all homeowners schedule our 11th month inspection. Our inspectors are skilled at detecting hidden construction flaws. Additionally, we will review all major systems and test the home’s mechanical parts. We will then record all of our findings in a written report you can submit to the builder to request repair under the warranty.
