A Word from Tom and Lisa Shelters

“You are at an important juncture in the process of purchasing a home! Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort and expertise. My experience as a builder gives me a unique advantage as an inspector.A thorough home inspection usually takes 2 to 3 hours, depending on the home’s size and age. I encourage my clients to accompany me–it’s a great time to ask questions and find out more about the property! I guarantee that I will inspect the property you are considering as if I am the buyer!”
