What about the Buyer???

It is often assumed home buyers are at a disadvantage if the seller gets a pre-sale inspection.  While a seller’s inspections will help home buyers make an informed offer, some buyers want their own inspection performed as well.  We fully support this, and Tennessee Inspection Services, LLC offers an Onsite Inspection Review.  We will go with the buyers, through the home and explain the report. This service can be performed before or after the home changes hands. It is done with the Home Inspection professional who completed the initial inspection. He or she will explain the report and answer questions.
