Buying a home in Boston entails one of life's most substantial financial decisions. Acquiring comprehensive insights into a property's condition, particularly through a pre offer inspection in Boston, is crucial for minimizing financial risks. While conventional practice sees buyers scheduling inspections post-offer, this approach limits their flexibility in renegotiation or withdrawal. Therefore, opting for a pre offer inspection in Boston empowers buyers with early and detailed information, informing their decisions and offer strategies effectively.

What our clients are saying

I am a first time home buyer and like anyone else, was very nervous about the inspection. I came across this company on Yelp and did not know much other than their great reviews here. They were all right. We had Tom Berthiaume and he went above and beyond during the whole process. Not only did he point out everything to use, he did it in a manner in which we could understand, provided recommendations, and gave us a world of knowledge of things we are not familiar with.

Hired MKC Associates for single family home inspection in Boston. They came recommended by friends who were very pleased with their service. MKC was prompt to respond to my questions prior to the inspection over the phone. The inspection itself was done by Jameson, who was extremely thorough! He inspected every nook and cranny of that house inside and out, very personable, explained what he was looking at and finding as he went along, and followed up with a thorough report with photos. My father is a building commissioner outside of Boston, he was present for the inspection as my trusted back up, and later commented how impressed he was with the MKC inspector.


Our home inspection was with Morgan and we very much appreciated his attention to detail and the time he took to teach us while he inspected. There were several features of our new home we would not have otherwise understood without Morgan. The thoroughness of the written report was also appreciated by the contractors we hired to fix some of the items – everything was laid out and it simplified their planning. We were referred to Morgan by engineering friends of ours and now we understand why – meticulous, thorough, and entirely pleasant!
