My Promise to You,
"Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet me until our appointment. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing.
Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort."
The vast majority of home buyers are on a particular budget. Many of them do not have the finances to purchase the very best – they have to settle for homes that are good, not perfect. There are plenty of quality homes on the market that would make great purchases for the budget-conscious buyer.
These buyers are trusting real estate agents and home inspectors to guide them to these homes. They want to own a home, and they need to buy something that will serve their needs, which almost always means compromise.
An experienced agent and a skilled home inspector have a realistic perspective on homes in their respective markets. They know that almost every home has issues, and they know how to tell the difference between serious problems – the kind that buyers should avoid at all costs – and minor to moderate problems, which many buyers can deal with to own a home.
A home with major structural problems is not the same as a home that has settled and has slightly uneven floors. A home with a roof that should have been replaced ten years ago is quite different than a home with a roof that will need to be replaced in three years. Homes with major issues should be avoided by most buyers, while homes with noticeable issues – but issues that can be managed – may be ideal for buyers on budgets.
A quality real estate agent has no desire to see a client buy a home they will regret and will work hard to avoid such a situation. A good inspector obviously feels the same.
An inspector is approaching the situation from a different angle and needs to be ready to explain the inspection results to help buyers make an informed decision. Not explaining issues in a way that sends them running immediately because they think the home will fall down around them (unless, of course, it actually is).
