I have a
lot of experience, more than most. According
to a membership poll by the American Society of Home Inspectors, over 40% of inspectors have less than 5 years experience. And,
only 12% of inspectors have 15-20 years experience. We’re not all alike. I've
been doing this full time now for over 24 years, and I've inspected thousands of modern and historic homes.
With that experience, you get a seasoned inspector, one who will find defects that newer inspectors might miss.
An inexperienced inspector could cost you quite a bit of money because if you move into a house full of unknown defects,
you'll be stuck with the bill. (I can't tell you how often a real estate agent has commented that the house
was already inspected, and lo and behold, the other inspector didn't find half the problems I found.)
And Just As Important
I will be working for you only, not for you and the real
estate agent. It's true that the vast majority of home inspectors rely on referrals from real estate agents
for the bulk of their business. These inspectors will soft-sell and sugar-coat defects in order to please the
real estate agent. If they don't please the real estate agent, they won't get their referrals.
I'm proud that the vast majority of my business comes from referrals from satisfied clients (and their attorneys
who appreciate my detailed reports).
I'll give you the unbiased truth about the house you're thinking of buying so you can make an educated and
You'll like my reports.
I admit I used to use one of those checklist-type reports that many inspectors still use. Frankly, they're
almost worthless. Now, my reports are custom-made, twenty-some typed pages, and completely narrative. They describe
what I looked at, what was wrong, why it is wrong, and the best way to address the problems. My thorough report helps
ensure you'll get a proper repair, not just a Band-Aid suggested by the seller or the real estate agent.
