"Before We Speak House, We LISTEN." We include YOUR concerns in the inspection. We understand you don't buy a house often or are buying your first home. We take 3-4 hours to inspect the house. We check how the house has handled Minnesota climate stresses, look for energy efficiency opportunities, and do carbon monoxide tests.
