Hawthorne Home Inspections
Home-buyer's Pre-Closing Inspection
Often referred to as the "General Home Inspection", these are booked prior to closing and are performed on either New or Re-Sale homes.
The inspection covers hundreds of components on both the exterior and interior of the home and includes a written report clearly outlining safety concerns and the condition of the home "at the time of the inspection".
The report gives the buyer the information required to make a sound decision on their purchase and prepare for future maintenance.
Our home inspection service is a visual inspection of the structural elements and systems which are accessible.
This typically includes:
and Crawl Spaces
Floors, and Ceilings
inspect and operate:
in heating season
Conditioning in cooling season
Fixtures in Kitchens and Baths

Home Seller's Pre-Listing Inspections
A general home inspection completed prior to listing the home will give the current owners an idea of the maintenance items that need to be addressed. A pre-listing inspection can also help inspire confidence in prospective buyers regarding the current condition of the home. It can also help reduce the time spent in contract negotiation because an unbiased, independent inspector has reviewed all the components and systems.
