  • 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 Inspectors’ own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to Inspect your Home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.

What Really Matters in a Home Inspection

Buying a Home? The process can be stressful.  A Home Inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect.  You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time.  This often includes a written report, a checklist, photographs, environmental reports, and what the Inspector himself says during the Inspection.  All this, combined with the Seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself, makes the experience even more overwhelming.  What should you do?

Relax.  Most of your Inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies for various systems and components, and minor imperfections. These are useful to know about.  However, the issues that really matter will fall into Four categories:

  1. major defects.  An example of this would be a structural failure;
  2. things that lead to major defects, such as a small Roof-flashing leak, for example;
  3. things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the Home; and
  4. safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electrical panel.

Anything in these categories should be addressed.  Often, a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and Property (especially in categories 2 and 4).

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 do not matter.  It is inappropriate to demand that a Seller address deferred maintenance, Conditions already listed on the Seller's disclosure, or nit-picky items.

Choosing the Right Home Inspector

Buying a Home?  It's probably the most expensive purchase you'll ever make.  This is no time to shop for a cheap Inspection.  The cost of a Home Inspection is very small relative to the value of the Home being Inspected.  The additional cost of hiring an InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector® is almost insignificant.  

You have recently been crunching the numbers, negotiating offers, adding up closing costs, shopping for mortgages, and trying to get the best deals.  Don't stop now.  Don't let your Real Estate agent, a "patty-cake" Inspector, or anyone else talk you into skimping here.  InterNACHI Certified Inspectors  perform the best Inspections by far. 

InterNACHI Certified Inspectors earn their fees many times over.  They do more, they deserve more, and -- yes -- they generally charge a little more. Do yourself a favor... and pay a little more for the quality Inspection you deserve.

The licensing of Home Inspectors only sets a minimum standard.  Much like being up to code, any less would be illegal.  Imaginary people, children, psychics (who claim to "sense" if a House is OK) and even pets can theoretically be Home Inspectors.  InterNACHI, the International Association of Certified Home Inspectorsfront-ends its membership requirements.
