What is a Home Inspection?

The purchase of your home may be the single largest investment you ever make. Having Spotlight Home Inspection LLC thoroughly examine the property will significantly reduce your risk by accurately informing you in writing, the condition of your purchase. 

A home inspection is an evaluation of a home’s condition by a trained professional. The resulting inspection report is an unbiased assessment of the condition of the house and its operational systems and helps manage risk by identifying any significant defects or adverse conditions requiring further evaluation or remedy by a specialist. It provides you with the information you need to make confident decisions regarding the suitability of the home.

What to Bring to Your Home Inspection

  • Bring your questions!!!
  • You should bring a pencil and note pad in case you want to make notes on some of the maintenance tips regarding your house and its systems. You may also wish to write down measurements for some of the rooms, windows, or other features of the house.
  • Most people like to take some pictures, so bring a camera if you like – Still cameras only please. Most current owners will accept still pictures, but get uncomfortable when someone starts shooting video in the home.
  • For your convenience, we offer the ability to pay with a credit card via the web. You may also bring a personal check or cash to pay for the inspections.

I started Spotlight Home Inspection, LLC, to assist others in developing a better understanding of their properties. For over 30 years, I’ve been buying, selling, and rehabbing properties in and around Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. During that time, I gained a wealth of real-world experience and a strong interest in understanding properties. This strong foundation, coupled with years of training, certification and continuing education of all my home inspectors, make my team at Spotlight uniquely qualified to inspect your home. Thank you for choosing Spotlight Home Inspection!
