Reliable Home Inspections & Property Inspections in Central Oregon

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, TurnKey Property Inspections provides professional and quality service from the moment you call us. Our certified home inspectors will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by InterNACHI, the leading home inspection association.

After we walk through the home together, we will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.

Frequently Asked Questions About Home Inspections

If you’re a first time home buyer or new to the process, you might find yourself wondering what do home inspectors look for?

Home inspectors look for home defects, safety issues and code violations using a detailed checklist. There are lots of items reviewed during the interior and exterior examination from a professional home inspector. How are these items determined? We utilize the InterNACHI’s standards of practice. The InterNACHI is the foremost leader in home inspector accreditation and continuing education.

Considering getting a home inspection? Wondering who pays for a home inspection? When buying a home, it is traditional for the buyer to pay the costs for the home inspection. The home inspection is protecting the buyer’s investment, so it makes sense that they would bear the costs.

When selling a home, some realtors and sellers opt to pay for their own pre-listing inspection. Home inspections do make a house more attractive to buyers if the seller pays for an inspection before listing the house for sale. In this case, investing in a pre-listing inspection can be a great marketing tactic as a seller.
