When inspectors put on their "inspector's hat", we have to remain impartial and objective. We are not supposed to let our personal feelings get in the way, or try to lead the client one way or the other. Sometimes we really have to bite our tongues. I have been on some inspections, and within ten...

I got a call this morning from the seller of the house I inspected earlier this week. The call started with: "This is Mr. XXXXXX and you inspected my home this week". This is usually when I brace myself for the verbal assault and arguments that follow. What followed caught me by surprise. He said...

There was some really weird things going on in the house I was inspecting this morning. Lights were flickering. The bathroom light became brighter when I turned on the wall heater, the hall lights dimmed. When the heat pump kicked on, all the lights went bright for a second. Inside the panel ther...

First of all, I have to say that I have had my fair share of jobs stolen from me because someone was only shopping for the lowest price. Once it was $5. I know it was $5, because the client called me back and told me I could have the job if I would match the other guys price. In today's market, I...

I recently wrote a blog about a Dad that just wore me out. Well, as the late, great Paul Harvey used to say, "Here's the rest of the story". Got a call on Wednesday from Dad. I saw him on caller ID, and have to say I cringed. I really didn't have time to spend going over each item in the report. ...

I inspected a new home today. The sign outside proudly said it had been "pre-inspected". I have to say that this is a pretty good builder. I really didn't have a bunch of stuff on my list, however, I think a couple of them are 'Inspection 101" kind of things. Here is some of the things I found......

I did an inspection for a nice couple yesterday, it went very well. However, I was at the house almost two hours longer than I expected to be. The problem was Dad. It seems Dad had called a few years ago when he was looking for a house. He spent a lot of time on the phone with my wife. He went to...

We would like to have a termite or pest control company join.  There is a certain commitment required when joining the group, but the Giver's Gain moto of BNI really helps to build our businesses...

If you are a home stager, or know one that could benefit from additional business referrals, please let me know. There is a certain commitment that is needed, but the benefits ...

I've done two inspections for a nice couple. They didn't buy either house, based on the stuff I found during the inspection. I probably saved them several thousands of dollars. I gave them a small discount when I did the second inspection for them. They called me this week with questions about a ...
