Walk-Through Consultations -
Length: 30 minutes: The Walk-Through Consultation takes place with the real estate agent and client present during a showing, which is usually scheduled for 15 to 30 minutes. That’s the maximum amount of time for us to walk through the property, so we’ll be moving quickly.
Report: No report. Our clients take notes, as we will not be producing any type of report.
Tools: A flashlight. Because this is not a home inspection, I will not be bringing a ladder into the home to inspect the attic, removing the electrical panel cover or doing what we do during a home inspection. This would have the potential to make the seller upset. We’re drawing a very clear line in the sand between a walk-through and an inspection.
Timing: I receive requests for these on very short notice, and I do my best to accommodate these requests.
What’s covered: I cover as much of the home as I possibly can during this short window of time. I also cover specific client concerns, within reason and time-permitting.
Price: $275 for homes up to 3000 square feet.
Coordinated by: I accompany the real estate agent and the home buyer on the showing, but we do not set up the showing. I ask (but do not require) the buyer’s agent to notify the seller’s agent that a home inspector will be accompanying them during the showing, but will only be there to walk and talk. As noted, the home inspector will not be performing a home inspection.
Radon In Air - $99.00
Radon is a gas. It comes from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your home traps radon inside, where it can build up. Any home may have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements.
Radon from soil gas is the main cause of radon problems. Sometimes radon enters the home through well water. In a small number of homes, the building materials can give off radon, too. However, building materials rarely cause radon problems by themselves.

Termite Inspection - No Charge
Wood Destroying Insects
Termites and other wood destroying insects such as carpenter ants, powder post beetles, and carpenter bees can do significant damage to a home.
Premier Home Inspection will conduct a wood destroying insect inspection for our clients.
The wood destroying insect report is not part of a home inspection. The wood destroying insect inspection is completed using form NPMA-33. Your mortgage company may ask for a copy of this form. There is a place for a license number on the form. CHFA, VA, and FHA loans may require this form to be filled out.
Well Flow Testing - $55.00
Wells should produce a minimum of three gallons of water per minute. Anything less than three gallons per minute will create hardships for the home owner. A good producing (residential) well will deliver in the region of five or more gallons of water per minute.
The gallons per minute are the number of gallons being delivered at the end of a controlled test. Many wells can produce five or more gallons per minute for five or ten minutes but cannot sustain the volume for a period of time.
If the well cannot sustain the volume demanded and the water flow is less than three gallons per minute, runs dry during the test or produces silt, there is a problem with the well that will need to be rectified.
