In this era of emboldened DYI homeowners, inspectors often find shoddy work and alarming alterations. It often stems from homeowners not knowing better but wanting to save a dollar. Don’t let their saved dollars come at your expense. My goal is to make you informed about your prospective investment.
You can’t depend solely on seller’s disclosures because most homes have defects not mentioned in the disclosures. Why? Because often the sellers genuinely just do not know about the issue, but sometimes unscrupulous sellers disclose small items but skip known problems in the hope that the inspector won’t find them. You need to know about the important items such as:
- Issues that might hinder your ability to get a mortgage or insurance
- Issues like foundation shifts or other structural problems
- Smaller defects that will lead to major ones, like roof leaks
- Safety issues like exposed wiring, mold, or critters in the crawlspace
My Promise to You
I will use all my experience, knowledge and intellect to provide information and perspective so you know what you’re getting and can make smart decisions during negotiations. I am meticulous, methodical, analytical and thorough in my inspections, and use only the best equipment and software. My reports are interactive with videos and high-resolution zoomable images.
Ultimately though, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the inspector’s effort and ability. If you select me to do an independent and unbiased professional inspection of your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.
That’s my promise to you.
