When my clients are making huge financial decisions, it’s nice to know that Dave is here for them.
The Home Inspections Dave performs:
Home inspections are not usually required and they do pose an extra expense. But it's not a corner that should be cut. Otherwise, you risk moving into a home that can have potentially serious problems that may cause you huge headaches and create a financial drain in the long run. You wouldn't want to move in to your home and find out months later that you have significant termite damage or that the sub-floor of your bathroom was rotted out and needed

At this time Dave will spend the next 1 – 2 hours going over the entire home. He will make notes, recordings and videos of all components of the home. While Dave is doing the inspection the home buyer is encouraged to spend time checking appliances, smoke detectors, measuring for furniture etc. and becoming acquainted with their new home.

Dave will then meet with the Home Buyers and review the entire Home Inspection and his findings, outlining any minor or major issues he has found.

After reviewing the home Inspection manual and touring the home with the Buyer, Dave job is completed, however the relationship does not end.
What if Dave finds major problems with the home????
If problems are found the Seller may agree to resolve and repair the problem at his/her own expense.
An amendment to the agreement of purchase and sale would have to be drawn up to indicate the Seller agrees to correct any problem(s).
In addition it can be set out in the amendment that Dave has the right to re-inspect the work and that it has to meet Dave's standards for the deal to be completed.
