Clearview Inspections Inc.
Seller Certified Home Program (Pre-Listing Inspections)
Listing Inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home.
Fees & Services
My inspection fees vary depending on the construction style, age, size, location and general condition of the
house. Most homes of standard size (1000 - 2500 sq.ft.) are $325 - $600 and include a full written report with
photographs (additional charges apply for ancillary services). For more information on an inspection that fits your
present needs, call 501-206-1839 and I'll be happy to assist any way I can.
A Pre-Purchase Inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested
and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing
materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The Inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s),
run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the
components tested. Upon completion a report will be distributed to you. Items included in the inspection
New Construction Inspections
New Construction Inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk
through with the Builder's Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to
verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the
Builder's policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the
Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At
the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to you.
Home Preservation Inspections
A Home Preservation Inspection is a wise choice for any homeowner who wants to know the current condition
of their home. These should be conducted every 1 - 2 years in order to assure proper and safe operation of the main
components of the home. The inspection is a visual, non invasive process that covers items such as air conditioning,
heating, electrical, insulation, ventilation, plumbing, roofing and main structural components. Any
items that are unsafe or show signs of potential failure are brought to the owners attention with a detailed
computer generated report including digital photographs.
A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look
great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge. Having the
home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue
sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front
and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.

Thermal Imaging (Infrared) Inspections
Thermal Imaging or an Infrared Inspection is useful in identifying or confirming defects that may not be readily
found on site. The image captured with the IR camera can be presented alongside a digital, visible-light photo,
along with a description of the issue that was discovered. This type of advanced inspection is a good way to
uncover issues that would otherwise require more time and difficulty to locate.
