About our Morehead City and surrounding areas home inspection services


If you are in need of a home inspection in the Morehead City, Beaufort, Downeast, Atlantic Beach, Salter Path, Emerald Isle, Newport, Havelock, New Bern, NC and surrounding areas, Mike Eagles and Southern Home Check is here to help. Whether you need a buyer’s inspection, a pre-listing inspection, or a warranty inspection to ensure proper maintenance of your new home, you can trust me to deliver excellent service.


My focus is on education and so my goal is to provide you with all of the information that you need about the property in question. I welcome my clients to  walk through the home with me prior to my inspection so that I can answer any questions you may have about the inspection process.


Southern Home Check uses a thorough, multi-point checklist that ensures that no stone is left unturned. Once I’m finished with my report I will walk you  through my findings.


Finally, I will compile a comprehensive Spectora report which will be available in both PDF and HTML formats that will include images, references, and details. The available report formats mean that you’ll be able to view it on a desk-top or mobile device at any time.

    I will visually inspect both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.
