Whether you are buying or selling real estate, inspections play an important role. If you are buying a property, you want to ensure that the property you purchase is in overall good condition. If you are selling a property, inspections will help you locate any improvements needed and then allow you to make or disclose any repairs before entering into a contract. As a seller, inspections also help prevent any surprises once you’re in contract, and reassures any potential buyers that the property is sound. Below is a list of my go-to inspectors.
Home inspections are a non-invasive general inspection of a home’s condition. The inspection will identify any issues with:
✓ Heating and cooling systems
✓ Plumbing and electrical systems
✓ Ceilings, walls, doors, windows and flooring
✓ Roof condition
✓ Crawl spaces and attics
✓ Foundation and structural components
✓ Home inspections typically cost around $450 +/-

View Point Inspections
View Point Inspections is a small locally-owned, sole proprietorship with a personal touch. I feel very fortunate to have lived in Santa Cruz County my entire life and feel very connected to this community.
I am a one man show. I am the Owner/Inspector. I’ve had many chances to expand, but chose not to due to one simple business motto: quality control. Quality control is the utmost important thing to me so I decided to stay small, keep a very close eye on things and work my tail off. Every report that is finalized and emailed off is combed through so that it is comprehensive and does not lack detail so all parties involved have a clear understanding of that property’s condition on the day of the home inspection.
I look forward to the chance of helping you make informed decisions on the property of your choice.
