Truth-in-Housing Evaluations: Truth-in-Housing Evaluations, which are also known as Time-of-Sale Evaluations in some cities, are required by city ordinance in a number of communities. Minneapolis, St. Paul, Maplewood, Bloomington, South St Paul and Hopkins all require that an independent evaluator, licensed by the city, perform the evalutaion. The report is required to be on display at the house when it is shown for sale. The evaluation of the home is based on each city’s housing code. Most of the cities require that some repairs of hazardous items be made. For more information about the required repairs, visit the links section
to be directed to your city’s website.

Private Homebuyer Inspections: Our private home inspections for the buyer will tell you what you need to know about the home you are purchasing. Concerns are often discovered during the inspection process that may be addressed during the negotiation process. We also consider the inspection to be educational. You will learn what you need to do to take care of the home. The inspector will identify potential problems, particularly those that are concerning health and safety issues. We perform a comprehensive visual inspection of all accessible areas of the house viewing all the systems of the home. Systems will include the interior and exterior structure, electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling. In most cases it will take 2 ½ to 3 ½ hours to perform the inspection.
We strongly recommend that you attend the inspection
so you can ask any questions you have.

Home Maintenance Inspection: Mechanical systems and structural components degrade and deteriorate slowly in every home. It is easy for an untrained eye to overlook the gradual decline in the efficiency and safety of a homes’ systems. Take advantage of our years of experience and let us evaluate your entire house. You will receive a detailed report that explains the condition of your home which includes recommendations for repairs, improvements and replacements as needed.
