"Make your next move a SMARTMOVE"
A home cannot fail an inspection. A professional at SMARTMOVE Inspection in Birmingham gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their proposed solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.
Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take several hours to perform, usually between an two and a half and four hours. Larger and older homes usually take longer. Ideally, you will attend the inspection, so that you will have visual reinforcement when the inspector reviews their findings.
We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we've found, including photos, with any problem areas noted so you can easily identify areas that need to be addressed. Our Atlanta Home Owner's Consultation Program provides free telephone consultation and support after your inspection for as long as you own the home.
