The Efforts of Inspecting Your Home
A full home inspection involves TEN
AREAS of the home and requires a lot of effort and work.
Some "home inspectors" complete "full"
inspections in as little as 20 minutes. A thorough inspection of a single family
home from roof to basement usually takes two to four hours. My fee may be higher
than those drive-by inspectors - about one tenth of one percent of the average
selling price of a home - but I won't perform drive-by inspections!
I don't 'kill the deal' and I'm not an alarmist. I try to
clear the mist so my clients can make some choices in their comfort level and
I am working for you, doing my best--honestly and objectively, to look at every
aspect of your dream home to give you unbiased observations about the condition
of your home at the time of the inspection.
When I first started this web site, business cards and
brochures, I had to come up with a brief motto to use that was a common thread
and would fit in all my literature. Every business owner has the same problem:
how to crystallize his philosophy into as brief a statement as he can.
Well it didn't take me long to come up with "Be Informed When You Buy A
Home". Haven't ever wanted to change it because I still want to
continue to do the same kind of inspection for you, my client.
Every effort is made to be respectful and considerate of a
seller's home. You have already expressed your desire to purchase the home by
your deposit of earnest money and you deserve to know as much about the home as
you can before the closing. Often items discovered during an inspection were
unknown to the seller.
The bottom line is
- You are my client.
- You have put your trust in my efforts on your behalf.
- I want you to be more knowledgeable about your home.
- Doing business in any other way would be a
violation of trust and I would never allow that.
