Buying a home is the single largest purchase most people make in their lifetimes. It is important to have a thorough inspection performed by a competent, Licensed Home Inspector. My 30 plus years of residential and commercial construction and real estate lay the foundation for all my inspections. I am a Lic Home Inspector, Construction Supervisor, Real Estate Salesperson and Vocational Carpentry Teacher.  My lifelong employment history is focused around building construction. With this background, I perform each inspection as if I were buying the property. Buyers are often star struck by the beautiful kitchen or living areas of the home and put little thought into the condition of the structure and systems of the home. It is my job to dig deep into the bones and systems of the house and report on their conditions. These often unseen areas are where many hidden deficiencies lurk, and it is my duty to inform my clients of these deficiencies. Whether a house is new construction or several hundred years old, most home have some considerable issues that need to be addressed. During my inspections I verbally report my finding to my clients and document them with pictures. The following day they will receive my professional report with all my findings, including pictures and my recommendations to correct any deficiencies. At this point my clients typically discuss the report and deficiencies with their real estate professional to determine the best path to address these issues. Buyers have several options: Take the house as it is, Ask sellers to make some repairs, Ask for a reduction in price or sellers concession or sometimes Walk Away. My job is not to tell you to buy or walk. My job is to open your eyes and show you the present condition of the property, so you can make an informed purchase decision. I am here to answer any follow up questions. And it doesn't end there. I am always a phone call, email or text away from any future questions you have pertaining to your house.
I look forward to the opportunity to inspect your next property.
