Looking For a
Well Qualified Home Inspector in Arkansas?
proud to say that for the fourth year in a row (2011, 2012, 2013 and
2014) I have been named the winner of the Super Service Award on
Angie's List! This award is given out at the end of the year to
the top 5% of service providers as determined by Angie's List user
reviews. Click on the link to the left for more information.
arranging for a home inspection I think it's useful to realize that
there are significant differences in how well different home inspectors
perform their task. The knowledge and background of the inspector are
obvious factors here, but that's not all. There are differences in what
inspectors perceive their core job to be as well as whose interests
should be protected. Believe it or not, some are afraid
that exceeding the minimum required standards only brings on more legal
liability for them. And unfortunately, some inspectors feel that
it is more important to please the real estate agents involved than it
is to look out for their actual client, the homebuyer. After all, by
keeping the agent happy they have a lot better chance of getting more
jobs down the road through agent referrals. The potential loser in this
arrangement? That's right, it's you.
are you expected to decide who to choose? That's a tough question. Real
estate agent advice? Cheapest price? First inspector who is
available? My advice: Online reviews are a great start if
you don't have recommendations from trusted friends locally. Spend time doing your homework. Here's
the thing that's REALLY crucial to remember: Everyone involved cares if
you buy the house or not EXCEPT for an ethical home inspector. After
all, we are the only ones who have no financial interest in the deal.
My Assured Home Inspection Google Place Page has numerous reviews
gathered over the past few years that may help you make a decision.
Unfortunately, Google rules won't let me publish a direct link to my
Place Page here so I encourage you to read those by doing a search for home inspectors in Little Rock, AR.
There are also several reviews on Kudzu.com
and some "filtered reviews" that are harder to find on Yelp.com.
There are also several on Angieslist.com
and a few more sites.
info? I was a custom home builder for 25 years, and in 1999 I decided
to diversify and use my experience to aid home buyers by providing
qualified inspection services. I became so busy with inspections that I
ceased building homes in 2006. To save you from doing the math that
means that I have been doing inspections for almost 15 years.
My core business
area is Little Rock, Bryant, Benton, Conway, Cabot, Maumelle, and North
Little Rock. But I don't limit home inspections solely to the central
Arkansas area. If you are farther away I welcome your inquiry.
Honestly, I like experiencing all of Arkansas and sometimes I enjoy a
drive to a different city outside my normal area. Call me and let's see
if it will benefit both of us.
