In the Real Estate Business, it is commonly stated that the three most important criteria for selecting a property are location, location and location. It can be said that the three most important criteria for selecting a Home Inspector are experience, experience and experience. Cost should be secondary. The State of North Carolina requires a license to be a Home Inspector. Holding a license does not make a person a good Home Inspector anymore than it makes anyone successful. The qualities shared by the best Home Inspectors are experience and the ability to observe, report and communicate based on that experience. As a Home Inspector, what we report affects many. Our work must be neutral, accurate and fair. Homes are like people...none are perfect, but some come closer than others.
In order to protect your interest the following recommendations are advisable:
I assure you of an accurate and impartial inspection. To avoid conflict of interest, I will neither solicit work nor recommended any repair services. Be wary of those who do.
