We believe that preventative maintenance is important in minimizing issues that could cause damage to your investment property. One of the best ways to do this to get annual inspections.
Our property inspection provides a room by room review. We photograph the interior and exterior of the home. We note areas of possible concern and any maintenance issues that may need to be addressed.
We record model and serial numbers of major kitchen appliances for future repairs.
