The Brand

The home inspection business is growing fast world-wide. In the USA, the home inspection industry 8 out of every 10 homes are now inspected each time they are sold.

Home inspection is catching on fast in South Africa as more and more home buyers realise that the best way to make an informed buying decision is to commission a home inspection report which details and evaluates all observable defects and also provides estimates of the cost of repair.

With the rise of consumerism, home inspection is set to play an increasingly important role in the SA real estate industry. HouseCheck is the leading home inspection brand in terms of national penetration, quality of reports and turnaround times.


Buying a house is a huge financial investment and can be very risky. HouseCheck helps buyers ensure that there are no costly hidden defects in your dream house: A HouseCheck home inspection report documents and evaluates all observed defects and also provides you with an estimate of the costs of repair.

HouseCheck advises home buyers to always make their Offer to Purchase conditional on a HouseCheck report.
