What to expect when you call Masters Home Inspections...
Congratulations! Purchasing a new home is an exciting experience and we are equally excited to
assist you through the home inspection process. Our goal is to make this a stress-free
experience. Here is some general information regarding the home inspection process and what
you can expect as you work through this process. We encourage you to contact us so we have an
opportunity to answer all of your questions.
Scheduling The Inspection...
Once the real estate contract gets ratified, you typically have a specific amount of time
available to complete a home inspection. Every contract is different so consult with your agent
regarding these specific timelines. When you contact us, we will work to secure a time and
day that works best for your schedule. We do have weekend and evening options available so
rest assure that we will likely be able to accommodate your requests.
Once the inspection is scheduled, the agents will need to confirm that the date and time
chosen will work for all those involved in the transaction. This is usually a simple process and
generally does not require rescheduling.

This process is a great opportunity to really dig into the quality of the home. Expect to learn
about the current conditions, the working features of the home and where issues may lie. We
