Reliable, fast and comprehensive reports is the lifeblood of PHILCO Property Inspection but we also add value to our customers by including pool inspections into the cost of our home inspection free. That is a great value to buyers and sellers alike!  We also offer pool and spa ONLY inspections for those who don’t need a full home inspection.

Best of all, you can count on getting your report FAST. Our reports are uploaded to the internet later the same day of the inspection so you don’t have to wait and wait to get the information you need most. We work with several top real estate agents in the Central Valley and Bay Area who can attest to the quality and efficiency of our product. We invite you to give us a try and see if we don’t meet your high standards too.

I Called Philco for a home inspection for a client. The clients asked to be present and Phillip said "no problem" He took the time to answer questions and go over details. He was very detailed and gave us some great information on the property. The report was complete and had several pictures which are very helpful for the clients to understand what the problems are. I will use Philco again and will refer business to him! Great Home Inspector!

I appreciated you taking the time to thoroughly answer all of my questions. You did a great job and I will recommend your serviceâ??s in the future. All I can say is watch out, â??Holmes inspectionâ??. Your attention to detail was very assuring to me as a home buyer. With your inspection in hand I know I am much more knowledgeable and informed, as to the value of the home to me to include hidden expenses. Thank You,

Phil was amazing and I would recommend him to anyone. He came on time. Was very thorough in checking everything as promised. Very reasonable price, compared to any other home inspector I shopped for. Took photos and explained everything. Even went through the crawl space. Took about 2+ hours to do inspection. Answered all questions very throughly and patiently. Checked all electrical sockets, washer, dryer, fridge, heater, cooler, windows, bathroom, garage, everything possible to inspect. I would recommend him to everyone for their home inspector needs. I am a first time home buyer and very satisfied with his work. He also charges $50 less for condominiums. Great job Phil. Jay
