Looking for a Greer Home Inspector?

You've come to the right place - we've got you covered.  As a Greer home inspector, we know there's tons of new developments popping up all over Greer, along with great homes in more established neighborhoods.  Greer covers a pretty big area, from far north of Highway 29 in the Blue Ridge area, all the way down to I-85 and beyond.

Greer is nicely located almost halfway between Greenville and Spartanburg, making it great for commuters.  However, there's plenty do downtown and in the surrounding area.  We like many of the parks that Greer has to offer, along with the quaint downtown restaurants, shops, etc...

When we get a call about a Greer home inspection, our ears perk up, because we never know where we'll end up.  Sometimes, we get to inspect one of the older, more historic homes located near downtown.  Other times, we end up in a new subdivision off of Highway 14 or Highway 357.  Occasionally, we get to perform an inspection of an old farmhouse, up towards the mountains, or maybe a home near Lake Cunningham or Lake Robinson.  We especially enjoy performing these Greer home inspections on the north side of Highway 29 because it's closer to our home office and we know a fair number of people in the area.

As a Greer home inspector, we encounter homes built on basement foundations, slabs or crawl spaces.  They are usually 1 or 2 story homes, but we've run across a couple of 3 story homes in the area.  Many homes in Greer feature asphalt shingles, but we do run across a fair number of metal roofs as well.  The homes on the far north side of Greer often use well water, while the homes closer to town are usually on public water.  Some of these homes utilize a public sewer system, while others have a septic system.

Lots of Greer home inspections are being performed right now, because the real estate market is booming.  Greer is a much sought after area, because of the great schools.  It's also close to large employers like BMW, Prisma Health, Michelin, the Inland Port, etc... Greer is a nice community that is close to all the amenities of the nearby larger metro areas, while also keeping that smaller, hometown feel.

What exactly do we do as a Greer Home Inspector?

Our job as a Greer home inspector is to conduct a visual inspection of the components of the home that include the following:

Roof System - including flashings, drainage, chimneys and plumbing stacks
Home Exterior - including porches, decks, retaining walls, stairs and steps, railings, driveways, sidewalks, exterior doors and windows
Structure - including the framing and foundation
Home Interior - including stairways, steps, railing, interior doors, appliances and cabinets
Plumbing System - including supply systems, drain systems, sinks, tubs, showers, fixtures, faucets, hot water heater and vent systems
Electrical System - including service drop, grounding system, receptacles, switches, fixtures, service panels, main disconnects, wiring and overcurrent protection devices
Heating and Cooling System - including fuel identification, age, size of units, location of air handler

When possible, we also like to look in the attic and the crawlspace. This gives us a more complete picture of how the house was constructed.

After our inspection is completed, we issue our report. The report includes details about the home and our findings regarding the components and systems. The report contains tons of information - things like the age of the HVAC system and if it is appropriately sized, the age of the water heater, building materials used, plumbing materials used, electrical component descriptions, etc... Our reports average 20-25 pages, depending on the issues we find, and include color photographs. Our reports are typically issued within 24 hours of completing the inspection and upon receipt of payment.

We conduct a Greer home inspection from an ethical, objective, unbiased perspective. We don't have a vested interest in the home or the possible pending real estate transaction. Our goal is to give our clients a clear picture of the condition of a home, so they can make a more informed financial decision.

We are often asked if our clients can be present during the inspection process, and the answer is YES! We love showing our clients the details of the home they want to buy. We'll walk you through how to change the furnace filter and show you where the fuse box is. We'll also show you how to shut off the water supply and help determine where the septic tank is located.

If you're buying real estate in the area and need the services of a Greer home inspector , please give us a call - we'd love to help you learn more about the house you want to buy.
