        After an inspection I will write an easy to read and comprehensive report (Click on red house above for a sample report) including photos within 24 hours of the inspection and deliver it to you and your agent ( if you have one) by mail or e-mail (the quickest way to get the report).  
I will be available for any questions that may arise from the report during and after regular business hours for your convenience.

        Mother Lode Home Inspector is now offering Prelisting inspections for homeowners and Move In Certified   Inspections on homes already listed in addition to Home Inspections for prospective home buyers. Click on Move In Certified buttons below or call me at 209-613-4737 for more information. There are advantages for doing inspections before a prospective buyer sees the home. Here a few examples:

 The report will reveal problems ahead of time which:

  •        Might make your home show better.
  •        Gives you time to make repairs and      shop for competitive contractors.
  •        Permits you to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
  •        Removes over-inflated buyer procured estimates from any future negotiations.                                      


      The report might alert you to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.

           The report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to your potential buyers. 

A seller inspection permits a clean home report to be used as marketing tool.

 A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on your part.

 A seller inspection permits a clean home report to be used as Marketing tool.

The report might relieve prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away from your home. 

If a home seller has a Move In Certified  Inspection done, there will be no charge for a re-inspection after repairs are done and concerns are corrected.  
There are lawn signs available, at no charge, to be used along with a real estate agents sign (if you have an agent) that says the home has been pre-inspected certified.

Thank You In advance for considering and using
