Pre-purchase home inspections provide the buyer with peace of mind and insight into the condition of the home.  It is an objective visual examination of the structure,  components, and mechanical systems of the home.  Don't buy a home without knowing potential safety problems and necessary repairs.  




As home inspectors, we truly enjoy sharing a part of the home's story with our clients and agents.  


We hold a special place in our heart for historic homes, and Chris Hilton has experience renovating, restoring, and moving historic structures in North Carolina.
