  • ABC Humane Wildlife Control & Landmark Pest Mgt
    5.0
    ABC Wildlife was wonderful! They removed the skunks from under our porch and gave us a permanent solution to keep this from happening again. ABC was professional and provided great service through the whole process, from start to finish. If we have any pests in the future, ABC will be our first and only call!

  • Perma-Seal Basement Systems
    5.0
    It went very well. James Ballard is the preventative maintenance technician who did my maintenance inspection and he was very thorough. Jim explained what he was doing so I understood what it entailed. His customer service is excellent. He was on time and gave me a courteous call. I would recommend permaseal again.

  • Heartland Home Inspections
    5.0
    I contacted Hank for the wrong service but instead of saying “we don’t do that” he offered 20mins of his time to help/guide me with my problem. Instead of seeing me as a waste of time, he saw me as a worried home owner and helped. Thanks Hank.

  • Spot On Home Inspections Inc.

    Jared was on time for his appointment. He was thorough in his inspection, and very professional. Jared answered all of my questions on his procedures, why they were needed and their relevance to the inspection. Both my wife and I were impressed by his knowledge, professionalism and courtesy. I have had several occasions to have had home inspections over the years and Jared was, by far, the best experience I had. I would recommend Spot on Home Inspections to anyone seeking this service, whether buying or selling a home.

    5.0
    Excellent inspection! Spot On Home Inspections did a very thorough job and took a lot of time explaining each detail of their findings. We have owned our home for almost 30 years and we’re advised of several areas that needed attention and we were able to address several of them before they became problematic. In addition, we were informed of venting issues that, when addressed, will be energy and money saving. Thank you!

    Bob Garza was great Very thorough, from getting up on the roof of my 2.5 story home for a proper roof inspection to every square foot on the inside plumbing, electrical, crawling around in the attic, his 101 page inspection report was a great introduction to my new home.

Home Inspection in Chicago

Scheduling a Chicago home inspection is one of the most important things you should do when buying or selling a house in the Windy City. In fact, banks rarely approve home loans without an inspection.

How Chicago home inspection benefits sellers

A bank wants to know that a home is worth the asking price. That way, it can recoup any money should the buyer default on the loan. However, a home inspection is not just for the bank’s benefit. A seller stands to gain valuable information from an inspection before putting their house up for sale.

Home inspectors examine a variety of things that can positively or negatively impact a home’s value. They look for heating and cooling problems, cracks or sags in the foundation, sewer troubles and even electrical issues. Inspectors almost always investigate for possible pest infestations, too. They also study the integrity of the roof and windows.

Discovering issues before your home enters the competitive Chicago housing market puts you at an advantage. For instance, it gives you the opportunity to make repairs that will drive up asking price. Alternatively, if a repair won’t be worth the return on investment, you can adjust asking price to facilitate a fast sale.

Buyers benefit from Chicago home inspection, too

As a buyer, you need to know of any impending expenditures a home will need, and how soon it will need them. A major upcoming repair, such as replacing the roof or installing a new plumbing system, may give you leverage to negotiate a lower price. And of course, if there are too many issues, you may decide to look elsewhere in Chicago to buy a home.

Real estate transactions, after all, are major investments that should be conducted with as much knowledge as possible.
