Home Inspection Services

We are here to walk you through the process

 

Buying a home is one of life’s defining moments. It’s an exciting journey that can be stressful. When you hire us, you hire an advocate. From the initial scheduling, we walk you through the process. You will be met on-site by a professional who will answer your questions in palatable terms, deliver your report via email on time and is available to answer questions after your inspection. In what can be a stressful event, we do our best to help you enjoy buying your home!


Inspection times can vary, but we ask our clients and their agents to attend the last 30 minutes of the inspection. The inspector will explain their findings in simplistic terms and use pictures.


Can’t make it? Not to worry, we’ll set a phone appointment for the inspector to review with you!

Before You Decide to Hire an Inspector, Keep in Mind These Key Points

 

  • Get a Home Inspector that is Certified through a National Association such as "International Association of Certified Home Inspectors" or "American Society of Home Inspectors." These require that the Home Inspector completes training and backs up the Inspector with Honor Guarantees and other services. ​


  • Choose an Inspector that is experienced and confident in the Inspection, Construction and Real Estate Industries.  Simply having a State License or a Certification is the minimum requirement to enter the industry.

​​

  • A Quality Home Inspector should be full time and perform no more than two home inspections per day. This ensures the Inspector will not be rushing through the inspection and possibly overlook some issues.  This also allows for prompt delivery of the inspection report.

  • A Confident Professional Home Inspector will allow you to attend the inspection to observe the work of the Inspector and ask all the questions you may have during the inspection process.

  • You Get What You Pay For - Lower priced Inspectors are typically the new Inspectors that are just entering into the Real Estate Inspection Industry or just doing part time inspections on the side. In this industry as well as other professions (Contractors, Plumbers, Electricians) they charge accordingly for Quality, Experience and Professionalism.

You can rest assured that selecting me for your next home inspection will satisfy these key points.
