About Us


What is a Home Inspection?

A professional home inspection is an impartial visual evaluation of your property. For builders, buyers, and sellers, inspecting your home’s condition is critical when it comes to purchasing, repair and maintenance decisions. We are confident in providing you with the highest quality reporting system available. This commitment to service sets Advocate Property Inspections apart from other area home inspectors. We understand the importance of a complete quality inspection for any property. After all, there is a lot riding on the inspection, whether you are a buyer, seller or investor.

What is Provided after the Inspection?

Working within your purchase contract inspection window and busy schedule, we can get into a home and perform a professional inspection without delay. You will find the report easy to read and understand. The Summary report includes detailed items we feel need immediate attention. The Full Report details the condition of all systems within the property.

You will receive a formal report by email within 24 hours, with colored pictures and detailing the condition of the physical structure, electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, roofing, interior, and exterior features.
