About Camas Washington

Established. Great Schools. Convenient.

Downtown Camas  

Camas has a well-preserved downtown that hosts many locally-owned small businesses. In the past couple of years, Downtown Camas has attracted many new chefs and restaurant owners. Now you will find restaurants that offer many different types of cuisines. Many local breweries and wineries also opened up pubs in downtown Camas that offer fresh PNW beer on tap and the famous wine that PNW is known for!  

Camas Neighborhoods

Most Homes in Camas are built on a series of hills. Certain neighborhoods in Camas are known to have great views of mountains, lakes, or rivers. Camas schools are one of the biggest reasons many families choose to relocate here. In the last five years, many new homes have been built, and Camas is definitely considered one of the hottest areas in the real estate world.

Gateway to the Gorge

Camas is the perfect home base for outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes. The city sits on the threshold of the Columbia River Gorge, which is one of the most remarkable natural areas in the world. Hikers, birdwatchers, and trail runners alike can follow the mighty Columbia east as they explore dozens of trails along the Oregon and Washington sides of the river. And with iconic Mt. Hood less than two hours away, skiers and snowboarders will appreciate Camas’ proximity to year-round winter sports.

Blend of Old & New

Camas has a blend of old homes that are built before the 1950s. Large corporations have moved their headquarters to Camas and have since attracted many builders to develop new neighborhoods. Driving around Camas, you will see many new neighborhoods have popped up next to older homes.

Multi-Level Homes

Most homes in Camas are built on hills. In order to take advantage of the beautiful Mt. Hood and Columbia River views, you will find most homes are multi-leveled throughout Camas. It’s also very common for homes in Camas to have very large crawl spaces due to the landscape nature of the area.

Rural Homes

Parts of the Camas area that are closer to East Vancouver are very well developed with many amenities. But there are also homes located in rural Camas. Most people are attracted to these homes for acreage and privacy. The further north you go, the more you will see these beautiful and private properties.

Recommended Inspection Services in Camas

Home Inspection Is a Critical Step in Buying Your Next Home

Homes Built in the Last Two to Three Decades: 

Buying a home built after the 1990s in Camas is fairly straightforward. We do recommend doing a comprehensive home inspection, sewer scope, and radon testing. We also offer re-inspections before closing for peace of mind.

New Construction:

Is the home you purchased a new build and you are wondering if radon testing and sewer scopes are necessary? We get it. Buying new construction in Camas is not a small purchase. We still recommend doing a sewer scope and radon testing to ensure that the builder has done a good job with the sewer line installation and your home is free of toxic radon gas. A small price to pay for peace of mind that your family will be safe and the sewer system will last a long time.

Buying a Camas Home That’s Located in a Rural Area

We have seen some amazing properties in rural Camas. These homes are built on large acreage with great privacy and views. Because of the nature of these homes, you will generally find wells and they will need pest and dry rot inspections.

Water Quality and Private Well Water Testing in Camas Homes

Clean water is critical for keeping your family happy and healthy. However, private well water sources and city water can be tainted. Plumbing distribution, piping, and fixtures inside a home can also affect water quality. Bennett Home Inspections will collect water samples, establish a chain of custody, and deliver them to the lab for testing. Results typically are available in five business days.

Structural Pest Inspection – Pest and Dry Rot 

Our inspectors do check for common signs of pest infestations and dry rot during your comprehensive home inspection. If we find any issues that require further investigation, we will make recommendations accordingly so you may request an extension to ensure the home you are buying is free from any major issues.

Reinspections Before Closing Your Home in Camas

When you buy a home with these big elements that may potentially need repairs and major maintenance down the road, it’s always a good idea to do a re-inspection before closing to ensure that the seller has properly repaired all the items agreed upon.

TESTIMONIALS

What Our Clients Say

Geoff does the inspection the way you want to have your home inspected when you’re purchasing a home! Super detail-oriented, efficient, and provides clarity into the things he finds. I couldn’t get Geoff on a previous inspection on an offer that fell through, and had to use a different inspector. Geoff’s inspection was $60 more but 300% better. Bonus: He did thermal imaging on the electrical panel to show possible shorts (I had one). I highly recommend Bennett Home Inspections.”
