Additional Inspection Services

Pre Listing Home Inspection Services

Pre-Listing Inspection

When we perform this inspection service, we’ll be comprehensively evaluating the condition of a home that you are preparing to put on the market. By uncovering new information about your home’s condition, we can help you improve the likelihood of a successful sale—giving you a chance to make necessary repairs before negotiations begin. 

New Construction Home Inspection Services

New Construction Inspection

This inspection service is designed to help protect your pending investment by revealing a newly built home’s strengths and weaknesses before the transaction is final. We’ll inspect the property before the builder’s final walkthrough, providing you with detailed explanations of any defects we discover.

11 Month Warranty Home Inspection Services

11th Month Warranty Inspection

The builder’s original warranty for most new homes usually expires after one year, and you’ll want to make sure you schedule this inspection service before that occurs. We’ll thoroughly assess the condition of the entire property, giving you a full report of our findings that will include detailed summaries of any defective components or safety issues we discover. If a defective area is covered by the builder’s warranty, there’s a good chance that you won’t be solely responsible for the cost of repairs.

Re-Inspection Home Inspection Services


A Re-Inspection should be scheduled after you’ve been notified that requested repairs have been completed on a home that you are preparing to purchase. We’ll revisit the property to evaluate the repair work that was performed, taking our time to ensure that the repairs were successful and that no other components were damaged while the work was being done.

Proudly Serving Memphis and the Surrounding Area

We offer highly professional home inspection services to the Memphis metropolitan area, including Shelby, Tipton, and Fayette counties.

Sunday appointments are available when requested in advance.

At Payne’s Professional Home Inspections, we believe that being able to save money is of the utmost importance when you’re preparing to invest in a home.
