What is a 4-Point inspection and why do I need one?
It's pretty simple, really. Insurance companies don't want to provide insurance and lenders don't want to lend money for homes that are showing signs of their age. From their perspective, the older your home is, the more expensive it will inevitably be for them should something go wrong.
How long does a 4-Point inspection take?
The inspection takes about 45 minutes to an hour for most homes. We provide our reports same-day whenever possible, but sometimes things take some extra time - Especially if we need to reach out for further documentation, or verify the age/permitting status of certain things.
