Welcome to Dream House Inspections! Buying a home is likely the most important and most stressful decision you will make. At Dream House Inspections, we ease that stress by helping you learn all you can about the condition of your new home and how to maintain it for years to come. An inspection for a single family home typically takes about 3-4 hours, and you are encouraged to follow around your inspector and ask questions. Your inspector will point out not only those items in need of repair, but also those that are in good condition so you know how to keep them that way. At the conclusion, you will receive your report outlining the condition of the home and recommendations for repairs and maintenance. Our goal at every inspection is to make sure you have a thorough knowledge of all the major systems of the home - their condition, life expectancy, and how to maintain them.
Based in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland, we have an extensive knowledge of the unique structures - old and new - of the Ohio City, Tremont, and downtown area. We look forward to inspecting your new home anywhere in the Northeast Ohio.
Whether you’re buying a new home or one that’s been around for a hundred years, you can benefit from a professional home inspection:
paint and fixtures to see if proper updates were done on major systems like electrical, plumbing, HVAC, etc. Preparing to rehab a home? Your inspection report can be a useful tool to make plans with your contractor. Then call us when the work is finished to make sure everything was done correctly.
• Foreclosures and Short Sales: Just because the home is being sold “as is” doesn’t mean you don’t need a home inspection. The bank won’t fix anything so YOU will be responsible for all repairs. And if the home has been sitting vacant, chances are the elements—and thieves—have taken their toll.
• Relocation: Moving to Cleveland? Our weather—from lake effect snows to hot and humid summers—creates a unique environment for your home. Find out what you need to know to protect your home from the elements.
- Selling your home: Give your home a competitive edge by finding and repairing issues before your buyer gets their inspection.
