Homes don’t “pass” or “fail” a home inspection. Every home may have significant good qualities, along with potential problems. We identify and explain these issues in the written report, and comment further on how to resolve them. Depending on the situation, we may provide references for additional information. A problem with a home is not necessarily a reason to walk from a deal or re-negotiate, but when you sit down to discuss any issues with your realtor that decision process is made much easier with your inspection report in front of you. As part of our ASHI Code of Ethics we are discouraged from recommending any contractors to perform repairs that we find during the course of our inspection, but your family, friends and realtor can usually provide you with a solid list of names if the need arises.
We are in the process of buying our first home and Mike came highly recommended via our Realtor. Upon reaching out to Mike he was responsive and professional in scheduling the inspection. At the inspection Mike was on time, diligent, detail oriented, and thorough throughout our time. Besides being very thorough Mike was very personable which made the inspection feel more comfortable. At the end of the inspection the Seller even commented how he was more thorough than who he had used previously and would want to use him as well.
He explained his findings in detail as he walked me through every step of the home inspection which I truly appreciated! He also answered all questions I asked of him. I highly recommend Mike Mullen for your home inspection.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Mike for our engineers inspection on our new home purchase. He was very thorough and answered any questions we had as well as detailed explanation regarding what he was doing/looking for along the way.
