The home buying process can be confusing and stressful. Not only do you need to consider things such as price and location, you also have to worry about whether the house itself has any hidden problems that could become costly surprises down the road.

As a professional, Certified Home Inspector, its my job to look for those hidden problems for you. The Home Inspection is an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the house. It provides you an expert opinion and a professional report on the condition of the physical structure and various systems within a house. It is in no way influenced by any feeling of debt or reciprocity to the real estate agents. This gives you peace of mind on what is likely the largest purchase you will ever make. This gives you a report that you can trust.

In order to prepare the report, I will conduct an inspection of the house. The inspection process typically takes me about 3 hours to complete. This of course may vary, according to the size and condition of the home being inspected. I strongly encourage you to accompany me during the inspection. This will give you a chance to ask questions and become familiar with the systems of the home. In order to provide a more thorough inspection, I request that all water/utilities are operational on the day of the inspections.

I believe in providing the absolute best inspection available.

When the inspection is complete, I will tell you of any problems that were discovered and discuss them with you. I will also tell you about any routine maintenance that should be performed, as well as answer any questions you may have. You will also receive a full written report of the inspection which includes digital photos. You will receive your report the same day.

What I will not do: I will not make any repairs, nor will I offer to do the repairs; To do so would be unethical. I am 100% independent and unbiased. I am in "cahoots" with nobody in any efforts to enhance each others business. I want to ensure that you get the very best inspection available. An inspection that you can trust.
