Choosing the right home inspector can be almost as important as choosing the right home.

Why?  Because many homes - even new ones - have issues that you might not notice.  However, a skilled home inspection professional has the training and experience needed to look for visual signs of defects in your home.  These defects, if not noticed and repaired prior to closing, can end up costing you, the new homeowner, thousands of dollars in repair bills.
