Why choose Home Stretch Inspections?
A large portion of homeowners who purchase previously owned homes end up making unplanned repairs within the first 6 months of purchasing. Shannon Johnson, owner and inspector at HSI, stays current with the most up-to-date training available and will use her extensive knowledge to provide you with a thorough report on any and all deficiencies in your potential new home.
A home inspection is a crucial step in the home buying process. Following the interNACHI standards of practice, we will perform an extensive visual examination of your potential new home, and provide you with a written report of our findings so you can have the peace of mind knowing that you are making an informed decision regarding your purchase.
If you are thinking of selling your home, an inspection will give you the opportunity to make repairs or upgrades that will put your house in a better selling position. It may also limit surprises that could arise when a potential buyer has their own inspection performed; lowering negotiation time and helping to sell your home faster.
If your house has a private water supply, it should be tested often for bacteria and nitrates. The MN Department of Health recommends testing for Coliform Bacteria once a year, Nitrates every other year, and arsenic and lead at least once. We will take samples of your water and bring them to a lab for testing. The results of the test will then be emailed to you.
