What’s the connection between professional home inspection services…flexible, dependable home warranty plans…a sophisticated property information platform…and mold, radon and termite inspections? As of Independence Day in greater Philadelphia, the answer to that question is…HouseCheck.

So, what exactly is HouseCheck? The company is fond of saying, “We do inspections right.” But the truth is that HouseCheck is an emergent superpower in the entire home services arena! And the company is pumped to enter the dynamic Philadelphia real estate market.

“Philadelphia is a great place to start establishing HouseCheck as an industry leader in this region,” says HouseCheck VP of Inspector Services for the Northeast and Philadelphia real estate expert, Laurence Elliott. “Our team of experts is hitting the ground running to ensure customers have the tools and resources they need to make the most informed decisions about their home.”

Originally a Brooklyn native, Elliott has lived and worked in Philadelphia for the past five decades. After many years as a professional entertainer, Laurence turned his talents and passions toward real estate in 1990. “I rose through the ranks to become a broker/manager,” Mr. Elliott says. “Along the way, I’ve worked on industry issues on the local, state and national level. So, I know the business – and the local market – like the back of my hand.”

In all that time, Elliott says he’s never seen a company with HouseCheck’s mix of products, high-energy commitment and unlimited potential.

Certified Pre-Owned Home.
This innovative program takes the typical chain of events – where an inspection happens following an accepted offer – and reverses the order.
With the Certified approach, the house is inspected and covered with a one-year warranty before it’s put on the market. This leads to a simpler process that is attractive to all parties – buyer, seller and agent.

HouseFax Property Reports.
