A Thorough Home Inspector

One thing that often separates real buyer agents from the pretend
buyer agents / designated buyer agents is the type of inspectors they

For most buyers we recommend at least medium grade inspectors but
often the real thorough guys.

This photo is of a thorough inspector who has filled the tub to check
the overflow and is standing on the tub rim to check for settling &
wood rot on this -150 year old home.

Most inspectors don't do this. Because most inspectors focus on making
real estate agents happy.

Our broker Jon Boyd Quoted in ABC Action News Online

A writer for interviewed our broker Jon Boyd few months ago for an article he was working on about real estate language.

ABC News picked up the interview and published it here.

Bad electrical work

I'm out at an inspection today and it isn't a big deal, but this looks
like some typical homeowner wiring.

At least the actual joints are in wirenuts. It would have been a lot
worse if the had just been wrapped together and then electrial taped.

However any electrical joints like this should have been put in an
electrical box.

I think it is a good idea for someone to be on the roof with the home

If the buyers don't want to go up I will.
