  • 3-Point inspection --

    The smart choice for many investors, who already know they will be making changes to a property they're buying but want to make sure a couple of the "major" systems are working as designed so their investment may be better calculated. Fees run between $75 to $150 depending on which three systems are inspected and the size of the house or condo.

  • Second Opinion Inspection --

    Primarily designed for sellers though buyers can take advantage of this unique offering too. If you've ever tried to get a contractor out to reinspect and/or fix something in a timely manner you'll appreciate this "Second Opinion" program. For example, a house has been inspected by another person/company and there are questions to the validity of the findings -
    Call Vanguard out there to confirm whether the issues called out are accurate or not, before losing lots of time trying to arrange a plethora of different trades people to come out to the property. Sales contracts typically have very short timeframes so there is no time to waste, Vanguard's Certified Professional Inspectors can be out there lickety-split to help move things along to completion. Fees are typically between $25 to $50 per item needing a second opinion, and lead times are usually less than 48 hours to get your opinion(s) rendered.
