What type of report do you provide? (electronic for us) How long have you been inspecting properties? (since 1997) Do you get on the roof (weather or pitch/steepness permitting)? (yes) Do you get in crawlspaces? (yes) Are you certified? ( yes- ASHI & NAHI) Do you repair or refer anyone to do repairs if you find anything wrong? ( NEVER, it is a complete conflict of interest to you if I were to do this. I want you to feel confident in what I am telling you about the home and not trying to create additional business for myself) Do you grade or tell me what you think of the house? (No! Sorry, but I'm not here to make the decision for you. Im here for proper disclosure of the property. Most homeowners believe that they have the perfect home, or may not necessarily know what is going on with their home. I'm here to help you understand as much of what is going on with the property so that you can make a fully informed and educated decision yourself. Only you know what you can handle, or what fits within your budget, and you have me here to help you know if it works for you or not. I am not here to steer you toward or away from the sale of the house. I stay fully unbiased throughout the inspection process. But I will inform you fully on any safety, structural, or major mechanical issues.)

I leave myself available for follow up calls to discuss any questions that you may have after the inspection process. There is a lot of information that we go over in a short 3 hour period in the home and sometimes questions arise whether it's from not remembering something, or not fully understanding. This is the largest purchase that most of us will make in our lives, and I want to make sure that you feel secure in your decision process.

I do approximately 400 inspections a year.

Obviously the location, size of property and type, if it is a Crawlspace, slab foundation, or basement. AGE is extremely important because it tells us what type of construction to expect. Are any utilities not on for the inspection or is the house winterized. Agent information. Although I do not work for your agent, I do need contact with them to ensure that we have adequate access to the property.

I just saved a customer thousands on a farm house that just had a new roof put on that went right over the top of moldy wafer board (OSB) and had bats in the attic. Everything had to be removed.

Another home in Fraser had a sinking foundation that the home owner tried to tell them that it was the design of the home. The repair cost the seller $25k after I looked it over. They tried to remove the brick and put it back. The entire wall needed to be re-framed from a water leak that has been going on for years. And they tried to do it without permits.

This is what I was going to school for. A company reached out to me as I was finishing school and taught me the process for being efficient and fluent at my craft. I worked for them for a few years and when they left Michigan, I picked up where they left off!

Get an inspection. Yes, I realize that it may be a great deal on the home, but it might be a great deal that had you had the property looked at first may have had you more prepared for what you had to spend, or may have not been a great deal after all. I hear it all the time at gatherings that they passed on the inspection and they wish they hadn't. $200-$300 is a small price to pay for ease of mind, or a great catch that may have saved you thousands that could have paid for a vacation or upgrades that you were planning on to your game room, kitchen update, or new bathroom remodel!
