Why should I choose Buyers' Inspection Group? 

Experience. Simply put . . . there will always be others out there who can do a job quicker, cheaper, or find a way to cut corners.  Since 1980, our philosophy has always been to provide the highest level of service for our clients backed by a wealth of experience and expertise.  State licensing numbers are an indication of how long someone has been inspecting in South Carolina because they are assigned chronologically. We inspect carefully and systematically with an eye for the routine as well as for the complex.  Our reputation is crucial to our longevity in the industry and in the Upstate.  We work only for you and have interest only in that you understand what you are buying. 

What do you inspect? 

We inspect the foundation, basement/crawlspace/slab, roof, attic, exterior, electrical, plumbing, HVAC systems, chimneys/fireplaces, decks/porches/stoops, doors, windows, kitchen appliances, garages, and interiors. You can see a virtual tour of the areas we inspect by clicking here

How long does the inspection take? 

A home under 3,000 square feet usually takes two to three hours. Larger or older homes may take longer depending on their condition. 

What other optional services do you offer? 


Do you perform carbon monoxide testing? 

Yes, where applicable, with a Bacarach electronic monoxide tester.  There is no additional fee for this service. 

Do I have to attend the inspection? 

We recommend that you attend but it is not required. If you attend the inspection you will see what the inspector observes and you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions about the home’s condition. 

What type of report do you produce? 

Our report is an easy to read comprehensive narrative style report. It is delivered by email on the next business day. Custom bound hard copies are available by request. It contains full color digital photography throughout. Our report is not a check list or large book with information about all types of houses and conditions. Each report is produced individually for each house we inspect. Our inspections and reports exceed the Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors ® (ASHI ® ) that is also the South Carolina Residential Builders Commissions Standards of Practice for Home Inspectors. 

How much does a residential inspection cost? 

Our prices are competitive with equally experienced inspectors, but your choice of a home inspector should not be based on price alone.  The trained and experienced inspectors of Buyers' Inspection Group are provided the time and have the expertise to perform a thorough inspection and produce a comprehensive report. Our base price begins at $365 and increases with the age and size of the home. If information provided over the phone is incorrect, inspectors may adjust pricing at the time of inspection for increased size or age. 

Do you require a Pre-Inspection Agreement? 

Yes.  A Pre-Inspection Agreement is an integral part of the report. An example of this agreement can be found in our sample report.

When buying a new home, is there any need to have a home inspection? 

Yes.  All homes should be inspected. Even the finest custom home is hand made. Many discrepancies seen in older homes have been issues since the house was new. A new home does not guarantee a home without defects. 

Should I have the home I'm selling inspected? 

Yes.  A prelisting inspection can be a valuable selling tool, in addition, it can help avoid anxiety or unwanted surprises prior to closing. 

The house has a warranty.  Do I also need a home inspection? 

Yes.  All homes should be inspected.  Warranties only include certain items and do not include pre-existing conditions. 

Do you make repairs on houses you inspect? 

No.  This is a conflict of interest and is not permitted either by ASHI ® or the South Carolina Residential Builders Commissions. 

Are you insured? 

Yes we are fully bonded and insured. 

Do you perform home inspections on a full time basis? 

Yes.  All of our inspectors are full time inspectors. 

How much does a commercial inspection cost? 

Commercial properties are quoted on an individual basis depending on your requirements and the size and type of property.
