Home Buying in Manayunk>Question Details

Hrs26, Home Buyer in Philadelphia, PA

Can anyone recommend a a really good and experienced home inspector for a home in 19127?

Asked by Hrs26, Philadelphia, PA Sun Feb 27, 2011

I'm excited to be buying my first place in the Manayunk area. Most of the homes in this area are on the older side and I'd just really like to find a home inspector who has a lot of experience in this particular area and with these types of row homes. Any tips, reviews, or recommendations on a home inspector would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I just bought my home in Manayunk. I used Pillar to Post. They were absolutely phenomenal!! Inspection was extremely well done. Enabled me to get a great price and ensure my insurance rates stayed low. Also, I receive a HUGE packet listing everyting ( in substantial detail) that was inspected, the next day! Its a great tool even now when planning renovations or needing to fix things! Good Luck!!
Also, I asked the sellers for a 1 year home warranty, American Home Shield. Best thing ever!! Sent someone out to fix dryer/dishwasher! (anything they can't fix, they replace!)

Hi Hrs,

How are you? Thank you for your inquiry. Congrats on your accepted offer on your first home! Quick question, shouldn't your buyer's agent should have been recommending you some home inspection companies to get in touch with for your inspection process?

But anywho, here is the contact information of the home inspection company that I recommend to all of my buyers and they all seemed to like the service that was being provided by the thorough inspection, knowledge and detailed reports that were generated once the inspection has been completed. I, myself, had used them for my home purchase last year as well. They have detailed photos, recommendation on how to repair certain items and even a breakdown of price ranges for some of the repairs so you can get an idea of how much you should re-negotiable your deal within your home inspection contingency period.
