Home Inspection in Kalamazoo, MI
Why You Need a Home Inspection in Kalamazoo
Every home buyer can benefit from a professional home inspection in Kalamazoo and the surrounding area. Whether you’re a first time buyer or a seasoned real estate investor, it’s easy to miss potential problems with a property. Many underlying issues may not be noticeable, or even visible, to the untrained eye. Also, sellers do not always disclose all the issues that a particular property may have. Often, they are not aware of the problems themselves. A home inspection tells you which items in the home need attention, so you can negotiate with the seller. Or, in extreme cases, you can even walk away from the deal before purchasing the home. The bottom line: hiring a Kalamazoo home inspector can save you thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs down the road.

What to Expect from Your Home Inspection
When we inspect your home, you can feel confident in our adherence to professionalism. We have the knowledge, experience and tools to detect both existing and potential problems with the property.
We recommend that you walk through the house with us as we perform the inspection. Although, we realize this is not possible for everyone. After the inspection, we will present our findings in a clear, detailed report containing photos and video. The photos and video almost make it feel like you were there – to see that crack in the wall, or hear the sounds the refrigerator is making – even if you live out of state. Our report will equip you with the information you need to proceed with confidence in your real estate transaction.
HomeSpec is locally owned and operated, state licensed and InterNACHI certified. We perform professional home inspections in Kalamazoo, Lansing, Battle Creek, Grand Rapids, Three Rivers, St Joseph, Jackson, MI and the surrounding areas.
We Use Tools to Spot Underlying Issues
Like every Kalamazoo home inspection company, HomeSpec inspects to the Michigan Standards of Home Inspectors. That means by definition, it’s a visual, noninvasive inspection. If we can see, touch, smell or hear the issue we can report on it. But what if there is an issue that is not visible on the surface?
We have invested in the extra tools required to give you the best inspection possible. For instance, we use a military-grade infrared camera on every inspection. The infrared camera helps us spot deficiencies in the home that might otherwise go unnoticed. Find out what is so special about us using an Infrared Thermal Camera for your Home Inspection.
We also carry an in-wall inspection camera. The lens size is smaller than a dime and allows us to see what is happening behind a wall or pipe. Both of these tools detect many issues that would not be discernible to the naked eye.
Do You Need an Inspection for a Property Other Than a Single-Family Home?
We also perform condo inspections, multi-property inspections, manufactured home inspections, mobile home inspections and commercial property inspections. We inspect new construction and existing properties.

HOA’s, real estate investors or other organizations often need more than one unit or property inspected at a time. We perform Multi-Property inspections utilizing the same inspection criteria as a single property. There are discounted rates available for the inspection of more than one property at a time.

Manufactured Home Foundation / Addition Certifications
Why We’re Different
If you’re purchasing a manufactured home, you will need a permanent foundation and/or addition(s) certification(s). This is often the last service to be ordered for the sale of a manufactured home. To keep the cost down and provide timely service, we work with MFD Home Certifications, LLC as a Registered Field Inspector. This ensures that your inspection is completed on time and in a professional manner. Learn more about Manufactured Home Certifications and how to schedule.
