Going above and beyond client expectation
Home inspectors are state licensed professionals and must provide inspection services according to the Standard of Practice and Code of Ethics set forth by the Mississippi Real Estate Commission’s Home Inspector Division Board. Beyond those qualifications, what makes one professional better than another? I believe it is where the inspector goes above and beyond client expectation.
Your home inspection is not a report that is generated on a pass or fail evaluation. Rather, your home inspection report is an “illumination” of the property’s condition. It is up to you to decide what if anything needs to be negotiated for repair before purchase and what if any updates you will want to make after purchase. I help you understand the difference between cosmetic defects and safety concerns and will generate a repair list for your realtor to submit to the seller as part of my inspection.
I communicate with you before physically inspecting the property to determine if you have already identified areas of concern. In some cases, you may ask me to inspect the roof first because if it needs replacing, you do not need me to continue the inspection. However, in some cases, this may be due to an insured loss that is eligible for repair under the seller’s current insurance policy.
My experience as a residential general contractor and insurance consultant can help you understand what your options are for any red flags that come up during a home inspection. My service does not end with providing you a report. I am available to answer any questions you might have and to help you make the right move.
