For homebuyers, buying a home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Like any investment, you will want to know as much information about your purchase as possible. After all, owning a home is the “American Dream” and it is important that you make a confident purchasing decision. We would like to help you with that effort.   Are you selling your home? Let an me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified™ home has been pre-inspected, which means that the seller can confirm that MIC Logothere are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement, and no known safety hazards. A Move-In Certified™ Seller Inspection informs you of any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home pre-inspected now.   AnnualHomeMaintenanceFor homeowners  I offer my extensive experience to help you keep your home in optimum condition.  Once a year usually in the fall and winter months consider letting me evaluate your home and help you discover any deferred maintenance and other potential issues before they become problems.

We performed our first, fee paid, inspection in 1986 for the Resolution Trust Corporation during the S&L crisis.  We take great pride in being the most qualified and experienced building inspection firm in our market.  We are fully licensed and insured to provide any inspection you may need – pre-purchase, due diligence home/building inspection, WDO/termite, indoor air quality, water/lead testing, radon testing, code compliance, fire, safety, ADA, cost reserve schedules, repair/cost to cure estimates, asset verification, insurability/underwriting compliance inspections, cost replacement valuations, FHA 203K, weatherization, constructability reviews, new construction inspections, construction management and expert witness testimony…timely and professionally.

With us, you know who you are working with.  Unlike many web based firms, we do not subcontract your inspection to the lowest bidder.  If you hire us, we perform the inspection and we submit the report.  If you have questions, you speak directly to the inspector who assessed the building.
