Property Inspections

Property InspectionsAt Husky Property Management, we know how important it is to keep your home in excellent condition. We want to save you time and money by catching any problems before they exist or before they become too costly. We will conduct a thorough home and property inspection at the beginning of service, between tenants, or upon request. Let the experts take over and keep your home in tip-top shape. Our staff are accredited by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors–InterNACHI–and use this as the bar to appraise your home.

 

As we evaluate your home and property, we will give you an informed and professional opinion. We will advise you so that you feel assured in making fair judgments and sound decisions. It is ideal to have our clients do a walk-through with us to reiterate and give vision to the written report, but it is not mandatory. If you are out of state or unable to attend, we will give you a complete briefing as well as advice on repairs and future courses of action.
