Florida Home Inspection Team is a state licensed (License #: HI197) home inspection company servicing Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. I am a proud member of FABI (Florida Association of Building Inspectors), and have been certified as a Master Professional Inspector. I sat on the board as a director, secretary, and treasurer for 8 years, and also served as the education chairman for the association. I also teach the 120 hour home inspector course for Miami Dade College a the north campus for students wishing to become home inspectors. I am currently teaching my seventh class.Here at Florida Home Inspection Team Inc, our job is to thoroughly inspect your home and alert you to any deficiencies, whether large or small, that need to be addressed. Some items will be maintenance issues, some issues will be minor in nature, but some could be major issues that need immediate attention. There may be areas that need further investigation, prior to closing, that need to be investigated to determine the extent of damage. Our reports should be read by both our clients, their Realtors and / or real estate attorneys. The report helps assist in your understanding of the condition of the home, and can be used to try to negotiate a lower price (if there are major issues) or can even be used to back out of the contract if the seller is not willing to make any concessions and the repairs are too costly. We perform an online permit search on every property we inspect. This search is vital, as it helps us determine if work was properly done, and it provides verification for certain features that could apply for hurricane mitigation discounts. We also conduct a thermal imaging scan of every home we inspect. This can help us locate leaks that are not visible to the naked eye and missing insulation in the attic. Our Services Include:
- Residential Home Inspections
- New Constructions Walk Through
- Construction Draw Inspections
- Termite Inspections(by a licensed company)
- Four Point Insurance Inspections
- Windstorm Mitigation Inspections
- Thermal Imaging
- Commercial Inspections
- Second opinion inspections
We pride ourselves on taking out time to give you the best inspection possible. Normally we will only do one inspection per day, as each inspection takes over three hours to complete on site, and the report usually takes a minimum of two hours to write. With every house there is always some research, whether it be searching for permits, manufacturer installation instructions, or code references, we want to make sure that we give you the correct information. Our prices may be higher than our competition, but our 16 years of inspection experience and over 4000 full home inspections (not insurance inspections) will help you make the right decision. Please call 305-490-2513 for a quote. We research every house prior to giving a quote, as some will have seawalls, pools, crawlspaces, etc.
I wish each and every one of you the best of luck in your search for your perfect home. My phone is on six days a week, Monday through Saturday. You can call me any time. I will answer any questions you might have whether I am your inspector or not. If you get my voice mail, please leave a message and I will get back to you, usually within a few hours.
