Sellers Home Inspection
Buyers Home Inspection
HOME REPAIR ESTIMATES
Traditionally, how real estate is sold goes as follows: Houses are put on the market, offers are accepted, and then inspections are performed for Buyers. Upon inspection, deficiencies are discovered and then Buyers and Sellers negotiate repairs. With this process, real estate transactions are negotiated twice, once on the price of the house and once for repairs. Upon negotiating repairs is when all the anger, anxiety, and frustration with the real estate process takes place. MOREOVER, THIS PROCESS ALWAYS COSTS THE SELLER MONEY.
In our experience, never in the history of selling houses has a Seller netted more money or sold the house for a higher price, after the Buyer’s inspection is performed. The Buyer will always demand a repair of an item, replacement of an item, or a reduction in price. AGAIN, THIS PROCESS ALWAYS COSTS THE SELLER MONEY.
Having a Pre-Listing Inspection performed has many advantages and we are dedicated to making your selling experience easier, more certain, and less of a financial burden. According to the National Association of Realtors statistics, houses which are pre-inspected sell faster, and for more money. To improve the way houses are sold, and to help all parties involved in the real estate transaction, Abode Solutions LLC joined up with Inspectedhouses.com.
Inspectedhouses.com is an innovative platform and system to help Sellers, the Listing Agent, and Potential Buyers. Using the Inspectedhouses.com system Abode Solutions LLC can help market the house, capture buyer leads, drive leads to the listing, and drive leads to the Listing Agents website.
With the Inspectedhouses.com system a Pre-Listing Home Inspection Report can be loaded to the Inspectedhouses.com website and Potential Buyers can download the report for $19.95. When the report is sold the Seller receives this money, as a way, to help recover the cost of the Pre-Listing Home Inspection. All the smoking, hot Buyer leads created from the Inspectedhouses.com system are given to the Seller and the Listing Agent.
Also, in conjunction with Inspectedhouses.com and a 3rd party warranty company, Abode Solutions LLC provides the Seller with FREE warranty coverage during the listing period.

Abode Solutions LLC is here to serve you. We want to provide you with the information you need to make informed, intelligent decisions concerning the purchase of your new home. Buying a new home is an exciting time but can also be very stressful. There are numerous details and deadlines to consider, and being concerned about the condition of your prospective home is where we specialize in bringing you peace of mind. One phone call to schedule your inspection is all it takes. We adjust to your schedule so you can be present at the inspection, and we notify all parties involved in scheduling the inspection.
Our inspectors at Abode Solutions LLC are able to identify deficiencies which are present in the home, can recognize prior repairs which have been made and in many cases can see the potential for future problems that may exist.
Our purpose during the inspection of your home is to look for the following 5 items:
- Health and Safety Issues
- Structural Problems
- Items or Systems in Need of Repair
- Water Penetration and Its Effects
- Insect Damage
In addition, our goal is to educate the buyer on the care and maintenance of a home to help your investment continue to increase in value according to the market value of the home. A complete home inspection includes a thorough examination of the major components that combine to form the structural support and working systems in a home. We abide by, but are not necessarily limited to the ASHI standards of practice.
Our inspections include, at the minimum, the following components:
- Roof, Vents, Flashings, and Trim
- Gutters and Downspouts
- Skylights and Chimneys (when accessible)
- Decks, Porches, Walkways, and Railings
- Eaves, Soffits, and Fascia
- Grading and Drainage
- Basement and Foundation (including accessible crawlspaces)
- Water Penetration
- Heating and Cooling Systems

- Garage Doors, Safety Sensors, and Openers
As a licensed Certified Home Inspector, our responsibility is to create a report detailing the condition of the home at the time of the inspection, and we as home inspectors are actually prohibited by law from telling you how much “We Think” a repair will cost. Possibly the number one question that I receive is “How much is this going to cost to fix”. It is because of this question that Abode Solutions LLC has partnered with a 3rd Party service, Majordomo, to bring you the answer to this question.
Majordomo is a remarkable company that provides a repair estimates report known simply as the Domoreport. Your Domoreport is based on the Home Inspection Report created by the inspector, and the repair estimates are generated by Majordomo Technicians who compare the Inspection Report to recent insurance claims that have been paid out in your area.
Traditionally anyone with a home inspection report can submit for a Domoreport on their own, but we at Abode Solutions think that this tool is such a vital asset, that we include the cost of your Domoreport within the cost of all of our Home Inspections. We submit everything on your behalf and you are notified within 24hrs of submission that your Domoreport is ready.
Through this amazing product and partnership, Abode Solutions LLC is able to provide you with the information needed to make an informed decision before you buy or list your next home.
