Greater Seattle Home Inspection

Home Inspection Seattle

Welcome to my site! My name is Mike Veitenhans. I'm the owner and sole employee of the independent home inspection service, MV Home Inspection LLC, and I inspect homes for clients in Greater Seattle:


  • Buyers who want to know the condition of the properties they're purchasing
  • Sellers who want to know what to do to get their properties ready for sale and
  • Owners who simply want to know how to keep their properties in good condition.


I'm retired from another career and that allows me a "luxury" that many other home inspectors don't have: I do only one inspection a day. What that means to you is I always have the time it takes to do a thorough inspection and answer all your questions, and I can usually better meet your scheduling needs.


My inspections typically take two to five hours, depending on the type, size, age and condition of the property. I provide a verbal summary of my findings when I complete the field work and, if you're a buyer, a written narrative report within 24 hours of completing the field work. If you're a seller or homeowner, you may opt to take your own notes and forego the written report.


I've tried "instant" report-generating software but find it lacking in terms of its ability to integrate information and to make the information easily understood. So I use a report of my own design (see "Sample Reports" at the top of the page), broken down by:


  • Grounds
  • Basic Structure
  • Insulation
  • Ventilation
  • Roof
  • Exterior
  • Garage
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Heating/Cooling
  • Appliances
  • Interior
