A Professional Inspection

A Great Inspection Should Not Just Focus ...

on a house's weaknesses and potential costs. A professional home inspection from Devine Home Inspections, LLC also takes note of the strengths and values. 

Every home has both strengths and weaknesses. Focusing just on the weaknesses does not give the buyer a complete picture of the condition of the property under consideration. Focusing on the weaknesses tends to scare potential buyers. We're not here to scare you, but to enlighten you with a fair and unbiased evaluation of your new home’s condition, free from the emotional attachment that might cloud observations. This approach lends itself to smoother and more confident transactions. 

You inspect the boxes, we'll inspect the house.

What A Home Inspection Is And Is Not

A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination

of a residential dwelling, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify observed material defects within specific components of said dwelling as outlined in Mississippi's Standards of Practice (SOP), found at  

http://www.mrec.ms.gov/docs/mhib_License_Law_Standards_of_Practice_and_code_of_ethics_2014.pdf  You are encouraged to read these SOP for important information, exclusions, and limitations.

A home inspection and its report are important and valuable instruments intended to assist in the evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling. The inspection is based on observation of the visible and apparent condition of the structure and its components on the date of the inspection and is not a prediction of future conditions. No destructive testing or dismantling of components is performed.

A Home Inspection will NOT reveal every concern that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the day of the inspection. A material defect is a condition of a residential real property, or any portion of it, that would have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the real property, or that involves an unreasonable risk to people on the property.

As valuable as a home inspection and its report are, they are NOT a warranty, guarantee, or insurance policy.
