Affordable annual check-ups for your home. A perfect follow-up to your initial inspection to support the systems of the home that were identified as defective or marginally defective. It’s the best way to track minor problems and keep them from escalating into expensive repairs.

A Move-In Certified™ home has been pre-inspected, which means that the seller can confirm that there are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement, and no known safety hazards. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith, avoid last-minute negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home pre-inspected. The poster on the right can be displayed in your home following the pre-inspection.

OverSeeIt inspectors offer the following services:

• Project and contractor oversight
• New-construction phase inspections
• Final walk-through inspections
• Annual inspections for home and commercial property owners
• Investor consulting
• Pre-Listing Seller Inspections
• Foreclosure inspections
• Insurance inspections

If you purchased a new home, your builder typically provides you with a one year warranty. The 11th-month inspection helps identify any problem that your builder can correct while your home is still covered under that warranty.

Testimonials

“I hired iSpect Home Inspections through a referral and I am certainly glad I did. James was excellent, extremely resourceful and very trustworthy. From start to finish, it was a seamless process. James is a true professional in every sense of the word and went the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable with my purchase. Buying a new home for anyone can be daunting at times and doing so as a single mom without any knowledge of home mechanics can be overwhelming. James took the time to go over, point out and explain his process in terms I could understand. I immediately felt comfortable with him and his expertise. He provided a very detailed report in a timely manner and was available for any questions with a speedy response throughout the process. He also provided me with a handy list of reputable tradespeople in the area.  I now feel well informed and able to address any areas of concern that may arise in the future. I highly recommend James…you won’t be disappointed!”

-Kristy, Congers, NY

“I’ve had several inspectors on the houses I purchased in the past. Never have I had such a complete inspection. Jim spent 5 hours on the house. He found moisture problems deep in a crawlspace and was able to trace it back to the source. He researched an outdated electric panel to list the problems with this style of breaker. I’ll be using and recommending him on all my future inspections.”

Suprotim Bose, New City

“Jim is the house inspector I refer to my clients. He has my complete faith and trust, so much so that I recommended my brother to use his service. He is a consummate and thorough tradesman and businessman.”

Matt Koneceni, Chase Mortage Banker

“Jim is everything you want in a home inspector. He is knowledgeable, thorough, and a pleasure to work with. He takes the time to do the job right and to explain to you everything you need to know about your potential new home. Best of all, he cares about his customers and that shines through in his work. We have used him twice and would certainly use him again. He has our highest recommendation.”

Joshua and Lori, New City

Reporting & Guarantees

Reporting:

I encourage you to attend the inspection. If you can’t, at least be there for the end. My unique software allows me to show you defects on site, to help you with your purchase and negotiation. A full detailed report with 100+ illustrations is emailed in a PDF, usually the same day, or at least the very next. Nuances of your home are identified with maintenance tips and upgrade suggestions provided. The summary will point out defects but the body of the report serves as a guide to your home. You will know the house.


Home Maintenance Publication:

A home maintenance book is included with every inspection resulting in a purchase. Extra time is allotted to explain how your home works to first time buyers.
