The Pillar To Post Advantage

Home Buyers

Welcome to Pillar To Post. As life long Bergen County NJ residents, we are pleased to offer our clients, and real estate professionals a full service NJ Licensed and insured home inspection business which brings unmatched quality, integrity and service to the home inspection process.

When you are about to make the biggest purchase decision of your life, whether it be a house, condo, town house, or estate, you owe it to yourself to choose the best home inspection company you can find. Pillar To Post was named the #1 Home Inspection Franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine for 6 years running.

We’ll provide you with the courteous professional service you deserve and the accurate assessment of property and systems condition that you need to make an informed buying decision.

In many cases, the money you save by identifying problems before you buy, will more than cover the cost of your home inspection. Knowing of any concealed problems before the purchase can literally save you thousands of dollars. And you will find our pricing very competitive.

We also take the time to go through any questions and concerns you may have on the phone, schedule a time that is based on your requirements, do a thorough inspection (2-3 hours) including all the major elements of the house and property, go over our findings with you on site, answer all of your questions about systems and maintenance, and present you with a printed Pillar To Post Home Inspection Report binder at the conclusion of your inspection. Your home inspection report will include narrative comments, recommendations on how to handle any defects discovered, and a summary page of any major defects. We also include digital color pictures as a picture truly is “worth a 1000 words” and pictures can be very convincing in clarifying any doubt about issues that may exist in places that are hard to access. At your request we will email the full report (with color pictures) to your attorney and realtor on the same day so that everyone involved is fully informed.

We also offer the additional services you need such as:

  • NJ licensed radon testing
  • NJ licensed termite, carpenter ant and other wood destroying insect inspections
  • Air or swab mold testing

We can also arrange for any other specialty testing you need, usually at the same time as your home inspection.

Home Sellers

Having a pre-sales inspection can save you a great deal of time and money. We will give you an objective and expert opinion on the condition of your house, property and all the major systems. If you can present a home for sale without unknown defects, it will sell more quickly and without the last minute surprises that the buyer’s inspector may turn up which can sometimes ruin a sale or cause costly concessions.

Surveys have shown that it is much more profitable for the seller to fix any deficiencies and offer a home in good condition than to make concessions to the buyer for discovered deficiencies, and a house that is correctly priced without major issues will sell faster.

With your permission, we can also put up an “Inspected by Pillar To Post” lawn sign to show potential buyers that you have had your property inspected by the most respected name in the home inspection industry.

We proudly provide home inspections in Northern Bergen County NJ, The Pascack Valley NJ, Northern Valley NJ, and the following specific towns:

Allendale, Alpine, Closter, Cresskill, Demarest, Dumont, Elmwood Park, Emerson, Fairlawn, Franklin Lakes, Glen Rock, Harrington Park, Haworth, Hillsdale, Hohokus, Mahwah, Maywood, Midland Park, Montvale, New Milford, Nothvale, Norwood, Oakland, Old Tappan, Oradell, Paramus, Park Ridge, Ramsey, Ridgewood, River Edge, River Vale, Rochelle Park, Rockleigh, Saddle River, Upper Saddle River, Waldwick, Washington Township, Westwood, Woodcliff Lake, and Wyckoff.
