Buying a Home?
Buying A Home – Sound Investment or Big Financial Mistake?
You are about to make one of the largest investments of your life- time. It’s exciting and stressful. The emotional toll of buying a home sometimes can cloud your judgment.
When you find that special home, the thought that there may be something seriously wrong is not a part of that exciting vision.
Unfortunately it could be part of your reality if you choose to buy the home. The right home inspector can help protect you from a costly mistake.
Who Is Watching Out For You?
The real estate agent, mortgage company, banks – all these people have someone watching their back. Who’s watching yours?
It’s important that you know, once you go to closing, any problems with the home are yours. So it’s important that you have your own independent inspector do a thorough inspection. You need to know what issues the home has and the ?nancial impact of those issues. Often the seller doesn’t even realize they have a serious problem.
Unexpected expenses can be a big burden after closing. Does it really make sense to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a home and not spend a few hundred dollars to protect your interests?
Let Us Be Your Guide
We welcome you to accompany the inspector during the inspection (with the exception of the attic and the crawlspace). This will give you a chance to see for yourself the thoroughness of our home inspections. Feel free to ask questions.
I am a Professional Certified Inspector through InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors). InterNACHI members follow a comprehensive Standards of Practice and are bound by a strict Code of Ethics.
We are dedicated to education and all new techniques so you as a home buyer can feel completely confident in your investment.
You are protected by our 100% risk-free guarantee:
Simply attend your home inspection and if for any reason you are not satisfied with the quality of the home inspection service, tell me before receiving your report and I will either make it right, or you don’t pay the inspection fee.
Don’t Fall for the “Cheapest Price”
Our inspections are competitively priced; however, the price may not be the lowest. The old adage “you get what you pay for” is so true.
“Chris took his time and even crawled into a small crawlspace access he found in the floor of an old addition. It was so tight he had to take his watch off to slide through the tight crevasse. Long story short, he found extensive dry rot in the joists of that space.”

Your Home Inspection Report
You will receive a comprehensive, custom, computer generated report with digital pictures emailed to you the same day as your inspection. This inspection report will identify ALL areas of concern and items that may need attention.
If there are notable issues, the home inspection report will allow you to ask the seller to make repairs or negotiate the price. It is your best tool to protect you from paying for unexpected repairs.

How Can We Guarantee Our Inspections?
We never do more than two inspections per day. This allows us time for a thorough inspection of your new home. We may charge a little more than our competitors, but the more thorough we are, the more money you save.
“We ended up buying the house after negotiating a reduced cost for the repairs that needed to be done.”
Job well done. Cheers!
