Home Inspection in the Real Estate Transaction Process

A home inspection is a vital step in the buying or selling process and provides the client with a well-rounded overview of the condition of a structure as well as its various systems such as plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and roofing. The inspection process we use is to visit a property and gather data in the form of photos and notes which concludes with a verbal debrief and walk around. A comprehensive digital report is then completed off-site and delivered by email, typically within 24 hours. We strive to take the needs of each client to heart and tailor communication in a way that addresses specific individuals; a first-time buyer will likely be interested in more granular detail than a seasoned investor.

Diligence Inspections was formed to provide clients with a high level of service as well as a holistic approach to the inspection process. This means that the structure and its various components are looked at as a complete system rather than just individual objects and acknowledges the cause and effect nature between the distinct components of a home. We are based in Portland, Oregon and presently offer residential inspection services in all of the greater Portland Metropolitan area.

We understand that privacy and discretion are of great importance to many of our buyers and take steps to ensure that personal details are not released. Specifics regarding individuals or their homes will never be discussed with outside parties.
