Clients I'm Seeking:


I'm seeking clients that are looking for a Home Inspection. Right now we pay the HST.

About My Business:


I was a real estate agent over 20 years ago and at that time the term home inspection was never heard of, the buyer wanted the house, it was sold. Pretty simple! Now that I'm a home inspector I am the last step of the transaction and in most cases the sale hinges on what I tell the client. In my experience I have found that when the home inspection goes bad the client already had second thoughts and was just looking for an out. In the rare event the client tells me to stop during the inspection, I ask if we can go a bit further, I wait until the third time I am told, (very rare). Often times the first issue is out weighed by some good value further in the inspection. When I put those rare clients aside, every other inspection we have done has ended up as a sale. Why? Well, I can't hide any issues that I come across but I always provide a solution to the issue and educate them on how to maintain the home as a working system. The big one I find is roof replacement, and I always say....If this was a 15 year old car would you be surprised if it needed tires? I find different analogies really work well to put thing into perspective. My job isn't to point out all the bad issues, I'm there to provide them with solutions for them to be able to enjoy the house they want and make it a home. I hope you consider us for your next inspection
