Purpose of a Home Inspection


The purpose of a home inspection is to inform the individual buyer of the current conditions of the home and to keep you (as a lot of Inspectors say) from buying a "MONEY PIT".

Buying a home is probably the most expensive purchase you will ever make. This is no time to shop for a cheap inspection. The cost of a home inspection is very small relative to the home being inspected. I am determined to perform inspections of the utmost quality, with integrity. For a buyer, I make sure that you know and understand every fact about the property that you are about to purchase.

Anytime you are purchasing a property, I understand it is a HUGE investment. Everyone involved needs to know every aspect of the property. I take pride in providing this service to you. The majority of my business is from client referrals. I work directly for the client. My job is to insure that the client understands every item that may be reported. My job does not end after the report is completed. Should you have any questions months down the road, you are encouraged to give me a call and I will do whatever it takes to insure that you are completely comfortable with the property.

Checked Right Home Inspections is here to assist you in making a confident decision about your property. Whether you're buying a new property and want to be sure of what you're getting, or selling a property and want to eliminate possible problems that could delay or lose a sale, or just want a professional to inspect and advise you on the condition and maintenance or safety recommendations of your current home, I am hear to help.


My report is not intended to be a "check list" of items that need repair or general maintenance, it is designed to identify material defects or deficiencies according to the age of construction that would have an adverse impact on the value of the real-property, or that involve an unreasonable risk to people on the property.

The Inspection will be a thorough, in-depth visual examination of the structure and operating systems and components of the home. The Inspection may take up to 3 hours depending on the size and condition of the home. Upon completion of the Inspection, you will receive a full computerized Inspection Report with pictures of the defected areas. I will review your Inspection Report and consult with you on any concerns or questions you may have.



I am self employed and have flexible appointment scheduling, including weekends. I encourage you to schedule your appointment at a time that will allow you to be present during the Inspection.
