What to Expect from Elite Inspections
Performing the most thorough and professional home inspections are difficult and time-consuming. Preparing a professional comprehensive written report that includes annotated photos, any infrared images, and any drone photographs as applicable, is perhaps even more difficult for the typical inspector (especially in a state where you can become a home inspector where you’ve never had to perform one inspection prior to becoming licensed!). This written report may take as long to prepare as the time to inspect the home. Therefore, for this premium level of inspection service from Elite the price is more expensive than the work product of most inspectors. It has to be.
Some of the best testimonials I get are from listing agents that complain that the report “has too much”. There has never been a complaint from a client that the report contains too much information! Also, the intent of the report is to inform you about the home as much as point out the flaws that may be actionable or negotiable. My clients typically understand that all homes have “issues”, and that no home is perfect, but are appreciative for all the information provided.
More importantly to me – I get no complaints from buyers, and in 27 years have never had any lawsuits! Ask any other inspector (or real estate agent) how many times they’ve been sued. Inevitably the inspectors (or agents) that have been sued will say it’s a “number’s game” and “just a matter of time”, which may be undoubtedly true. However, producing an exemplary work product will reduce any such possibility.
There’s a place for all inspectors in the inspection business, but the old cliché “you get what you pay for” is equally true for an inspection.
