What to Expect from Your Inspection

Summary

At Fruitful Home Inspections, we use a thorough multi-point checklist for the inspection process. Our report will explain the overall, general condition of the home, and its systems, to you and your agent. Also, we take care to point out any defects we find.

In addition, we compile a comprehensive modern report, and deliver this report to you online via HTML, or in PDF format.  Your report will illustrate all of our findings. And it will include images, references and intimate details. The report will be available for you in a desktop-friendly format, and a mobile format. In other words, you will be able to check your report even when you’re on the go.
