Due to current Nashville market conditions, local home inspectors are very busy and are often booked out.   Once a contract has been accepted, we should schedule a home inspection asap. 

Ideally, the inspection should occur within the next 2-3 days, however, during the busy summer months, inspectors may be booked out up to a week or more in advance. It’s important that the home inspection occur quickly as it often takes the inspector 1-2 days to write the report after the inspection. Once the report is written we still need some time to review the report and ask the seller for any credits or repairs before the inspection period ends, which is outlined in our contract (typically 14 days)

Plan to attend the inspection which will take approximately 2 hours for a single family home. Inspectors usually only work Mon – Fri and do not work evenings or weekends so you will probably need to arrange to be off work for the inspection. Wear comfortable clothes which can get dirty as the inspector may want to show you something in the basement, on the roof, etc.

My favorite Nashville area home inspectors are:

House Master - Tim Cope ( he is my favorite!)

615-673-9840

tcope@housemaster.com

Recent Client Review:

"I found Tim to be honest, straightforward, and fair in pricing. He saved me from making a very bad purchase that would have been a money pit. The house I looked at seemed perfect - gorgeous in fact but Tim found code violations in the electrical wiring so severe the house was extremely unsafe. I am very grateful I was not stuck in an unsafe home with my family."

If Tim is not available, here is a list of other great inspectors in the local Nashville area:
