Although not a mandatory requirement when purchasing your home, it is highly recommended. After all, it’s not likely that you would buy a used car without having it looked over or test driving it first; and a car costs a fraction of what you will spend purchasing your home. Let Guided Inspections “test drive” the house that you are considering purchasing so that there are no surprises for you down the road. If you have a friend or relative who is a builder, carpenter, etc. (or you are one yourself), feel free to have them take a look at the house. However, you should also consider having a licensed and qualified home inspector perform an unbiased property inspection, as this inspection report will hold more weight with the seller, in the event that you end up requesting repairs or concessions.
Jesse was our technician. In depth, detailed inspection, professional and reasonably priced. Took longer than I thought it would and Humbled with the amount of work our home needs but glad to know what needs fixing.
We were using an established, old school inspector who had either trained or worked closely with Jesse so when he was busy he recommended I call Jesse. I am so glad I did! He is the first person I call when I need an inspection for a client and he is the most level headed and informative inspector I have come across. Not an alarmist which is huge in the real estate business. I would highly recommend Jesse to anyone looking for a good inspector!
Realtor here! Hands down my favorite residential home inspector! I actually found Jesse through a client who had used him and praised about his work and professionalism so much that I had to see what the fuss was all about. Here we are years later and Jesse is my go-to home inspector. Reliable, patient, knowledgeable and honest. Hire him…but do it quickly, he books us fast, as you can imagine!
