Home Inspections

A home inspection is a visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from foundation to roof.  A home inspector is trained to be a detective in regard to the construction and working parts of the home. As Home Inspector, we will evaluate the physical condition of the structure, construction, and mechanical systems. Also, identify items that should be repaired or replace. Then estimate the remaining life of any major systems (such as electrical, plumbing, heating, or air conditioning), equipment, structure, and finishes.

Our Inspection Reports

Central Missouri Inspection Services uses software called SPECTORA.  This software creates home inspection reports that our clients and agents will have!  Our clients like them because they are easy to read and understand.  Pictures are together with the inspection point reducing questions and confusion.  Agents consistently praise our use of SPECTORA, due to their clients having fewer questions.  Automated summaries provide them with the to-do list they are looking for.  Pictures in the summaries make it even easier to identify and resolve issues found.

What if the report reveals a problem?

If a home inspection does reveal problems, it does not necessarily mean you shouldn't buy the house.  The home inspection is meant to educate you on the condition of the property prior to purchase.
