The Best Home Inspectors in Northbrook, IL

About Our Home Inspections in Northbrook, IL

Whether you are buying, selling, or maintaining your home, Home Inspection Geeks provides professional and quality service in Northbrook, IL and surrounding areas. Our licensed home inspectors will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by InterNACHI, the leading home inspection association.

After we walk through the home together, we will personally explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read report, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
