After we walk through the home together, we will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent.

All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report, which will be delivered online as an HTML and emailed as a PDF. From that report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
