American One's Goals:

 Whether you're buying or selling a home, having a professional home inspection from a leading home inspection company will give you peace of mind and aid you in a fair and smooth transaction. We are trusted by home buyers to help them make informed buying decisions. Our home inspections typically range from 2-3 hours depending on the size of the home and the client is invited to follow along with our inspector as they conduct your inspection. We take great pride in every inspection we complete. When the inspection is over, your inspector will prepare a detailed report about the property. We proudly serve all of Riverside County and it's surrounding areas. 

● Provide our consumer with comprehensive information to help them make a confident and informed decision when buying a home.  

● Provide detailed information about the status of the structure and systems of the home. 

● Explain any unique maintenance the home may need in the future.   For most of us a house purchase is the largest monetary investment we will ever make. Our job is to give clients as much information as possible about this investment. 

What is a Home Inspection?

  A home inspection is defined as a non-invasive, visual evaluation of a property's basic structure, the structure's foundation or basement, interior, exterior, roof, electrical, plumbing and heating and cooling systems. A good home inspection will detail conditions that may affect the mechanical or structural systems of the home. At the end of a home inspection, the home does not pass or fail. Instead, the client is given a thorough description of the physical condition of the home, including what components and systems may need a major or minor repair or replacement. A home inspection completed by building knowledge usually takes between two and three hours to complete, depending on the size and condition of the home.

Reasons to have a home inspection

 The most common use for a home inspection is to assist a client in making a more informed purchasing decision. The inspector may also educate the buyer as to typical life expectancies, items to budget for, replacements, as well as how to take care of and maintain the property. Due to the education factor of a home inspection, we strongly encourage clients to be present for the home inspection in order to get the most information possible from the inspection. Home inspections can be used for other purposes as well. Other types of inspections include pre-purchase inspection, new home construction, one-year walk-through inspections, and pre-listing inspections.
