Why should you consider a home inspection?

A home is likely the biggest purchase you will make

My home inspection should provide you peace of mind, knowing you are receiving complete comprehensive information about the new home you are about to purchase. You may receive a lot of information in a short time. 

Relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. The report is divided into four categories:

Acceptable

Marginal 

Defective 

Safety Hazard

Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property.

Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Do not kill your deal over things that can easily be repaired. It may be inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller’s disclosure or nit-picky items.

Understand maintenance costs before purchase

.

Ensure that your home will be a safe place to live

My Promise to You

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.

Inspected once, Inspected right!
