How long does the inspection take and should I plan to attend?
The average inspection will take approximately 2 ½ to 3 hours. If the home is older or if there is a pool/spa that we will inspect, the process will take a bit longer. And yes, please try to come to the inspection toward the end of the inspection period. The inspector will print your report on-site, walk you through the property, point out the items that he has identified as being deficient, and answer any questions you may have.
Why should I choose Valley Home Inspections?
The Valley Home Inspections team is highly trained, experienced, professional, proficient, courteous, and competent. They possess an exemplary reputation for fair, accurate, concise reporting that is easily understood, even by first-time home buyers and homeowners. The inspection report is delivered on-site and includes photo documentation. In addition to our standard Monday through Friday operations, we are open weekends and holidays for scheduling and provide inspection services on Saturday. Valley is locally owned and operated. It is not a franchise or a "one-man shop". There are no 800 numbers to dial when booking an inspection or getting answers to your questions. Should a problem arise, it will be addressed by local management as opposed to franchised out-of-state representatives.
What is the cost of a home inspection?
The inspection fee is based upon the square footage, age of the property, and any additional services that may be requested. The size and age of the home will determine the amount of time required to perform a thorough examination. However, the cost of the inspection should not be the deciding factor when selecting an inspection company. The large investment required to purchase a home is a serious proposition. Knowing that the inspection company has more than a 23 year history of serving Valley Real Estate Professionals and their clients and that the inspection team is highly qualified and experienced is what matters most. Valley Home Inspections will not be the most expensive or least expensive company, but will provide excellent value and superior service for the reasonable fee we charge.

Is the Home Inspection Guaranteed?
Sometimes the “home inspection” is confused with a “home warranty”. The home inspection is a visual examination of the condition of the home and its components at the time of the inspection. We guarantee that our inspections adhere to and meet or exceed the Standards of Practice adopted by the State of Arizona, Board of Technical Registration and that the reporting will be accurate. We do not guarantee that the roof will not leak sometime in the future. On the other hand, a home warranty plan, purchased from a home warranty company, will help protect you in the event one of your systems or appliances goes on the blink.
