A home inspector is someone who has a vast knowledge about homes and all the systems within but is not an expert on anything specific. Equate a home inspector to a primary care physician. I look everything over meticulously, searching for problems, safety issues, and issues that may need repair. When I find an issue I will describe what I found and recommend further evaluation by an expert in that field. 

I encourage you to attend the inspection. This is the easiest way to understand my findings and learn about the house. When the inspection is complete, I write and deliver a detailed narrative report that includes many pictures, outlines defects, and makes recommendations

on how to proceed.  You will have all the information you need to make one of the biggest purchases of your life!

Sample Home Inspection Report

The State of New Jersey has outlined what home inspectors are and aren't required to do in what is called the Standards of Practice. For your convenience, I have a copy of the

Standards of Practice here or you can read them on the NJ Department of Consumer Affairs website at  N.J.A.C. 13:40-15:16 (page 20)

Pre-Listing Inspections help you understand the true condition of your home as you prepare to bring it to market. Repairs can be made before the house is for sale and that leaves less room for negotiations by the buyer down the road. Homes that are ready to move into command higher prices and more offers.

Pricing for Pre-Listing Inspections starts at $300. Call me and we can discuss what best fits your needs as you consider putting your home on the market.
