Pre-Purchase Inspection

A pre - purchase inspection is a visual examination of a structure performed by a qualified licensed home inspector. This will be done prior to the closing of the house. A home inspector will evaluate all the systems and the structure and report on their conditions. There are two main goals of a pre - purchase inspection. The first is to identify any potential or existing defects that may affect the buyers decision to purchase the house. The other goal is to find any areas that may be in need of immediate repairs. And to note any systems that are past their life expectancy or approaching the end of their potential lifespan. This is done so the buyers can budget their money accordingly.


Acuity Inspections thoroughly inspects and reports on the following:

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, Acuity 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 and Code of Ethics for home inspectors established by the State of Ohio.

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.
