Commonly Asked Questions

Why should you have inspection FAQ:

You are looking at making one of the biggest purchases you will probably make in your life and one you may live in for many years to come. You will want to know the condition of this property before you purchase it. That’s where I can help you by performing a comprehensive inspection of the home you want to purchase and inform you of the condition of the home and educate you on important aspects of maintaining your home.

Why have your home pre-inspected before listing?

As a seller, you are one step ahead of others marketing their homes at the same time.  You will know of any potential roadblocks that may stall a future sale.  With a pre-inspection in hand, you will know what information is being provided to potential buyers.  The criteria for what makes a house a home may change from year to year.  If you have been in your home for any length of time, you may not realize what sellers are concerned with in their purchase.

How often should I have an inspection completed on my home?

As a home owner, if you have been in your home for several years or even just a couple of years it’s good to have a separate opinion of the condition of your home before listing for sale. This way there will not be any surprises when selling.

Can I attend the inspection?

I encourage you to be present at the time of your inspection so we will both have an understanding of each other’s perception.  I’ll also be able to review some common misconceptions about home maintenance.

Is my information safe with you?

As a home inspector with ASHI (American society of Home Inspectors) my commitment to you is, I am working for you alone. I will not receive any compensation from the realtor or any third party for doing the inspection and I do not pass on any information about the inspection to anyone without your express permission.
