Read what our clients have to say about us!

Every home tells a story, but no home should be a mystery to the potential buyer!

Sherlock Homes' trained, certified house detectives carefully examine every part of your home, so you never get a surprise ending. From Rowhomes to Condos to Estates, New Construction to 1600's Farmhouses—we inspect any dwelling, of any age, at any time.

What Sets Us Apart

Experience * Personal Service * Two Inspectors at your inspection

You will notice right away that Sherlock Homes isn’t like any other inspection company. Whenever possible, your inspection is conducted by TWO highly-trained inspectors, who have conducted thousands of inspections, and can communicate what they see in plain English to help you understand more about your home.

With TWO inspectors, you get twice the expertise, and two highly-skilled assessments of every part of your home to ensure that no detail is overlooked. It also allows us to take the time to answer your questions in detail and help you get the most out of your inspection, while still getting the job done in an efficient and timely manner that makes it easy to fit into your busy schedule.

It isn’t enough that we know what we see, we want you to be a part of the inspection and learn about the biggest investment you will ever make. Sherlock Homes makes sure that you know that YOU are the most important person at the inspection, and our job isn’t done until your questions are answered.

This is why we are so popular with our clients, and why so many Realtors refer us time and time again. But don’t take our word for it – read what our clients say about us in their own words.

Easy Scheduling, Fast Response

When time is of the essence, we work to fit your needs, so you have one less thing to worry about. We work 7 days a week (including holidays! ), mornings or evenings to fit your schedule. Our 24/7 online or phone scheduling makes it easy, and RUSH Appointments are available on as little as 12 hours notice.

Thorough Inspections

Our inspections are more than just “elementary,” we exceed all industry standards of practice (NACHI, NAHI, etc.). Unlike many inspectors, we will climb every accessible roof and enter every accessible crawlspace.

We physically inspect every accessible area and system of a home including:

Structure & Foundation Basements
Attics Plumbing
Electrical Porches & Decks
Property Gutters & Drainage
Heating & Cooling ALL Doors, Windows, Fixtures, Lights and Outlets
Roofing ( on the roof whenever possible)  

Detailed Online Reports with Photos

Your report will be ready and waiting in your inbox 24-48 hours after the inspection, and contains all the information from the inspection including ages of systems, estimated remaining useful lives of HVAC and roofing, identified defects, and recommendations for corrections. Reports contain dozens of photos, citations of professional standards/codes (where applicable), and detailed information about your home and how to take care of it

We also include a summary page, for when you just want to get down to the main points. For Realtors, our interactive report software also allows you to use the summary to write your “Reply to Inspection” right from our report!
