Our Recommended VT Home Inspectors

Property Inspection

Most people who buy a house in Montpelier or Barre have a property inspection (or "home inspection"). The inspector will give their opinion of a property in terms of soundness, safety, durability, level of construction, quality, etc. on a detailed level.  The point of a property inspection is to discover any hidden defects or unknown problems in a house.  Inspections are thorough, and if anything comes up that makes you feel like this isn't the right house for you, you can rescind your contract (within a certain number of days--stay in touch with your Realtor) and your deposit may be returned.

There is no "Property Inspector" license. Anyone can inspect a building, although there are a number of highly qualified property inspectors in the area. It can be a very good idea and provide great peace of mind to have someone who has experience in property inspection. Here's our list of trusted names in the Central VT area :
